This Ultralight Gravel Bike Boasts Fidlock Tech For Strapless Bag Mounting

Feb 1, 2021

Category: Gear

As riders continue to trade skinny tires and lightweight performance for added rubber and improved comfort, one thing has become abundantly clear: high speeds on the open road have become far less enticing than a leisurely ride along the path less pedaled. And as gravel has boomed, so too has bikepacking, an activity that places you at the mercy of your two-wheeled steed and anything else you can haul.

In an effort to give riders the most integrated baggage experience possible, Norwegian-based startup Fara Cycling has crafted a bike that comes fitted with its own attachment points and specially designed carry. That is, rather than relying on straps as most bikepacking setups do, the F/AR instead features a set of built-in Fidlock fasteners. Simply attach the bags to the quick-release buckles and away you go. Simple. Elsewhere, you’ll find plenty of all-road provisions, including clearance for up to 700c x 38mm tires, hidden full-coverage fender mounts, as well as bosses for bottle cages, bento bags, and even a rear rack. Available as a frameset or a custom built bike, it makes for an offering truly unlike anything else on the market. You can pre-order now with a refundable $1,200 deposit.

Purchase: $1,200+
