New brand Remōt is set to debut its all-road, gravel and mountain bikes at this year’s Sea Otter Classic, on April 11-14, in Monterey, CA (Booth D-71). This new breed of bikes is born out of American Bicycle Group (ABG), maker of Litespeed and Quintana Roo.
After specialising in titanium and the triathlon category, ABG is now ‘inviting adventurous riders to blaze new trails on one of their new Remōt bikes.’
‘As the name implies, Remōt is for outdoors enthusiasts who love exploring hard-to-reach places and rely on high-quality equipment to get them there. The three lines of bikes – Boundary, Cinder and Baseline – are designed for the different terrains riders encounter in the wild.’
Boundary is billed as the gravel-specific bike built for taking the road less travelled. Here, Remōt uses the term ‘road’ loosely. Boundary comes with either Shimano 105 or Ultegra components. Its carbon fibre frame helps to deliver durability on rough rides, while a number of mounting options give riders more ways to carry essential gear.
Cinder is Remōt’s full-suspension carbon fibre mountain bike. It’s fine-tuned for a variety of trails thanks to 130mm of travel in the front and 120mm in the back. Stocked with SRAM GX, and available as a 29er or 27.5+, Cinder is for ‘anyone with a burning desire to shred’.
Baseline is positioned as ‘the road bike for people who get a little lost on purpose and somehow wind up back at the coffee shop or brewery’. Like Boundary, Remōt’ s all-road bike is constructed with carbon fibre and available with Shimano 105 or Ultegra. All models come with disc brakes and wide tyre clearance.
“We’re excited to launch the Remōt line-up of bikes and we can’t wait to see where people will ride them,” said Chris Brown, Global Sales Manager for the new brand. “Remōt is all about discovering new places and sharing those experiences with good company.”
Every Remōt model can be ordered directly from remotbikes.com and arrives assembled in a secure shipping box. ‘In minutes, customers can finish setting up their bike and start riding.’ Prices start at US$2,300 and cap at US$3,700.
