The Arise is a genuine ‘Swiss Army Knife’ built with versatility in mind from the ground up. Keep it single speed or convert it with a full group-set like the Rad Pack did on their gravel Tour d’Iceland. Now in its third generation the Arise has been revised to further enhance that versatility. The updated geometry gives a better range of sizes, with top tube lengths getting a little shorter for a more comfortable reach. Thanks to a sliding dropout the chain stay lengths can be varied for different kinds of riding, a little longer for a more comfortable touring set up, or shorter for a more playful and nimble feel. The frame retains the 4130 tubing and the front triangle is butted and heat-treated for a better strength to weight ratio.
The option to convert the Arise into 1x or 2x gearing has been retained thanks to the removable cable guides and derailleur hanger. The new Tektro RX5 v-brakes use a short pull system, to work better with STI shifters. Up front, the fork is now a little longer to further improve riding comfort and also with a longer trail for more stable handling. The fork blades now feature rack mounts, so setting up a low rider with panniers is easily done. There is also plenty of grip from the Continental ‘Cyclocross Speed’ tires, which roll fast and smooth on the road, but still have excellent grip on dirt trails.
