We’ve got some hot bikes to announce this week and we’re starting off with the stunning Libre DL and the badass Rove NRB DL. Both bikes are coming equipped with Shimano’s new GRX groupset, which is geared towards the gravel market.
The 2020 Libre DL moves to 650b wheels and a 2x Shimano GRX 800 drivetrain, providing a broader gear range for a wider variety of terrain. The Kona Race Light Carbon frame is mounted with an Easton carbon bar, Race Face carbon seatpost, Easton EA70 AX wheels and a Kona Verso Carbon touring fork providing a light and fast ride. Numerous mounts for water bottles and frame bags give you the ability to be more self-sufficient and travel further than ever before. Similar to last year’s Libre, this bike features one of our gorgeous prism paint jobs that changes colors depending on the angle of the light.
The Rove NRB DL represents the light and fast mentality of a long-distance rider. We’ve spec’d this bike with a high-end, yet affordable Shimano GRX 600 drivetrain and 105 hubs. The NRB DL also features our new full carbon flat mount disc fork with three-pack cage mounts, which is perfect for touring and long days in the saddle. Big tire clearance, custom dropouts that are fender-compatible, and hydraulic disc brakes make the Rove NRB DL a unique bike that is ready for anything.
