Bent chain stays, thinned seat tube and top tube, and optimized fork designs maximize comfort and reduce rider fatigue. - DESIGNED FOR ADVENTURE: Designed to excel on rougher surfaces, Search XR geometry is a little slacker and longer than conventional road bikes for a confident ride. - EFFICIENT FRAME: Front and rear thru-axles, oversized downtube, BB shell, and chain stays deliver lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer and control over rough terrain. - INTERNAL ROUTING: Internal cable routing with adaptable port covers keeps cables tight and secure and prevents water from entering the frame. The Search XR is also compatible with a wide range of configurations such as 1x or 2x drivetrains. - MULTIPLE CONFIGURATIONS: The Search XR aluminum models are available with flared drop bars, a flat bar model, and the Search XR Suspension features a 50mm gravel-specific SR Suntour suspension fork. - TIRE CLEARANCE: Generous tire clearance lets you customize your Search XR to the type of ride that best suits you, or the ride your planning on any given day. Larger tires provide more comfort and control on paved surfaces, and greater traction on off-road or gravel excursions. - ACCESSORY MOUNTS: Multiple bottle cage mounts on the frame & fork, custom removable fender bridge mount, and stealth rack & fender mounting points expand Search XR's versatility.
