You may ask yourself, “What is this 650b semi-plump tire trend anyway?” Perhaps you’re gravel-curious, but not quite sure of how often you’ll really want to push your limits off the paved road. That, my friend, is what the Rove AL 650 is here for. It’s the road biker’s gravel/touring/do-it-all steed. It welcomes bigger tire clearance and more comfortable geometry. It provides everything you need for a fast, comfortable ride and nothing you don’t. It’s the perfect bike for commuting, partaking in weekend warrior adventures, or diving deeper into longer tours.
Geometry & Ride Characteristics
Kona 6061 Aluminum Butted Frame: The aluminum frame is lightweight yet durable, making it suitable for different types of riding conditions.
Kona Project Two Aluminum Disc Fork: This specific fork is designed to offer a balance between stiffness and compliance, which is particularly useful for gravel and touring rides.
Shimano Claris Drivetrain: The bike features a Shimano Claris 11-34t 8-speed cassette and 34/50t chainrings, offering a wide range of gearing options for various terrains.
