Cervelo Aspero Apex 1x
When we think about the sport of gravel racing, we think of just about the grittiest riders on two wheels. In one word, the conditions are demanding. Physically, psychologically, and demanding on our equipment. It takes a different kind of mindset to commit to 200+ miles of off-road pedaling through adverse conditions, free of support, and relying just on your own dedication to work through the race, pushing to stay at the front of the group. It also takes a different kind of machine. A machine that's built for speed, with a balance of comfort, rather than gear-hauling that we see on some gravel adventure steeds. To satisfy this need, Cervélo crafts the Aspero Apex 1x Complete Bike. This is a bike built with purpose and intent. It's constructed to take on the rough and rowdy terrain, and float ahead with lofty tire clearance that accommodates either the ultra-plush 650b or quick-rolling 700c hoops. It's a weapon built for chasing down podiums, and packing in all of the essentials you need to get you there.
The Aspero is built with modern geometry that's aim is to combine comfort for the long gravel miles, with progressive fit to help you soar to the front of the pack. Trail is Cervélo's secret weapon in the world of geometry, and it comes into play on the Aspero to provide stability, regardless of the bike's size. It features a bit more trail than you'll find in road bikes, landing at about 62mm regardless of size, being that stability in rough conditions is a must, and each size uses a fork unique to its own geometry to keep trail consistent throughout sizing, meaning that every size of the Aspero provides an identical ride feel, which blows other rides out of the water that maintain the same fork for every size, and don't take the shorter riders so seriously. While some of this is achieved through a unique fork for each size, an adjustable fork offset lets you further tinker with things, enabling the bike to meet any rider's needs.
