ABOUT THE SEARCH XR STEEL

The Search XR Steel is not just head-turner. The strong but lightweight steel frame has a ride feel that is unique to steel as a frame material. The vibration-damping material properties combined with thoughtful frame design make the bike a pleasure to ride. With tire clearance up to 700 x 45c (or 27.5″ x 2.1”), rack, fender and bottle mounts, the Search XR Steel is ready for any adventure, whether that is urban utility or exploration off the beaten track.

SEARCH XR STEEL FRAME WITH CARBON FORK
Heat-treated and back-tempered premium Reynolds 725 steel tubing allows the use of thinner tubes to reduce overall weight while retaining the strength of thicker, heavier tubes. Curved and ovalized seat stay tubing further enhances the rider comfort already inherent to a steel frame while the carbon fork helps reduce road vibrations in the front for a lively yet comfortable ride.

SEARCH XR ADVENTURE GEOMETRY
Designed to excel on rougher surfaces, the geometry of the Search XR is a little slacker and longer than conventional road bikes to create a solid and stable ride.

TYRE COMPATIBILITY AND SIZE SPECIFIC WHEELS
Equipped with tubeless ready tyres, rims and valves for increased traction and puncture control and with tyre clearance for 650B x 2.1” or 700c x 28c-45c tyres (up to 42c with full fenders), the Search XR Steel stands for maximum versatility. The smallest two sizes (45.5cm and 48cm) have smaller wheels (26”/650B) for uncompromised handling characteristics, delivering performance benefits of the larger bikes as well as drastically improved toe overlap clearance.

DUAL THRU-AXLES FOR LATERAL STIFFNESS
The Search XR Steel features front and rear 12mm thru-axles delivering lateral stiffness for better cornering and control through rough terrain.

RACK, FENDER AND BOTTLE MOUNTS
Multiple bottle cage mounts on the frame and fork offer multiple storage configurations turning the Search XR into a versatile adventure bike, ready for everything from tackling a gravel grinder to your next bike-packing trip.

EXTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
External cable housing with cable guides along the downtube ensures easy and quick serviceability. The option to run 1x gearing creates an even cleaner look.
