Aero disc brake bikes have been stirring up the cycling world, but Rondo takes things not one, but two steps further. The HVRT is the world’s first variable geometry, road-plus ready road bike. This is an all-out race bike, first and foremost. Don’t let its additional features throw you off track. No compromises have been made in this area. It’s responsive and aggressive. However, Rondo has built-in some unique solutions that will make this bike your best everyday companion. Large Volume Tyre and Versatile Wheel Size Compatibility First of all, the HVRT offers the option to use large volume 700c tyres, or even mount massive road plus tyres on 650b wheels, ultimately transforming the HVRT into a road-plus bike that can handle rough road terrains, potholes and cobbled streets. Secondly, thanks to the unique Twintip fork you can change your riding position and adjust the steering character of the bike. The first setting with steeper angles, smaller trail and a lower front will be the choice for racing. The alternative fork setting, that fits big tyres and/or fenders, with slightly slacker angles is ideal for harsh, long endurance rides. Versatile, Competitive and Stylish Road Race Bike So, imagine this situation: you regularly do fast group rides and races on the weekend, but with your training, you want to stay away from traffic and explore some of the B-roads during your summer holiday. The only bike Rondo can think of that can do both things properly is the HVRT. All you need is two sets of wheels. Your race-day set could be high profile, aero and fancy. Your second set can be an ultra-durable 650B setup with 1.9” road plus tyres. The difference that it makes is massive. Rondo is not talking about subtleties of typical “endurance” road bikes such as a slightly lower BB or slightly more forgiving frame. They are talking about a black-and-white, go-or-no-go kind of transformation. Carbon Fibre Frame with Adjustable Geometry Carbon TwinTip Fork This outstanding race-steed features an aerodynamically designed carbon fibre frame at its core and is equipped with a Rondo Twin-tip carbon fork. This duo ensures you slice through the air and past your rivals with immense efficiency and stability, while its adjustable geometry fork enables you to easily change the characteristics of the bike from a ride focussed on comfort and control to a sitting position that achieves the ultimate in race-day aggression. Shimano Ultegra Di2 11-Speed Groupset with Hydraulic Disc Brakes A Shimano Ultegra Di2 2×11-Speed groupset powers this ride up the steepest hills and past the peloton with reliable, virtually silent and instant electronic gear shifting. This Rondo race bike shifts through its gear range with exceptional efficiency and is also equipped with Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes to accurately control your momentum across all terrains. Plus, it rolls on Rondo Superlight Carbon wheels with 44mm-deep rims that are wrapped in Panaracer Race C Evo3 tyres for the ultimate in rolling pace, stability and grip in all weather conditions.
