Taking your bicycle on road trips, day trips, and grocery trips isn’t anything new; people have been doing it for years. But with pastimes like bikepacking and other outdoor festivities falling into the spotlight recently, our favorite means of low-cost transport has been steadily adapted to handle even the most trying of trails. Now, the Washington-based builder, Kona, and Seattle’s Swift Industries have come together to create the quintessential touring bike.

The Kona x Swift Industries Rove Touring Bike is an amalgamation of the medium’s finest offerings. It’s built atop a Kona-sourced butted chromoly frame and features a slew of parts from the renowned brand, including a Project Two chromoly disc fork, Deluxe Thumb seat-post, and Road Deluxe stem. Customized bags accompany the bike, to include Swift’s Paloma handlebar bag, Zeitgeist saddlebag, and Jr. Ranger Panniers, ensuring adequate storage capabilities whether you’re traveling cross-country, or down the street. To get you where you need to go, Shimano’s powerful GRX 400 braking system and GRX 600/800 11-speed crankset serve to define the bike’s primary groupset. If you’re looking to snag your own all-terrain tourer, head to Kona’s website, where the limited-edition Rove is available for $3,200.
