“Descending was a joy with that slightly higher position and long wheelbase, and the bike is confidence-inspiring.”

Road Bike Action’s October issue hit the newsstands a month or so ago and with it this solid review of our 2020 Libre CR.

“The short stem was also nicely paired with the 71-degree head tube angle when running a bar bag or loading the front with gear. The weight doesn’t feel like it takes over, and it’s easy to manage at low or high speeds.”

The cream of the crop, the Libre CR DL leaves no stone…er piece of gravel unturned. This gorgeous Race Light Carbon frame provides both performance and comfort across varying terrain. Powered by your legs and an 11-speed Shimano GRX 810 drivetrain, the Libre CR DL shifts with confidence in the mud, on pavement, over singletrack… With a +RAD adjustable dropper post, 700x45c WTB Riddler TCS tires, an Easton EA 70AX wheelset, and a Kona Verso Carbon fork that can carry a ton of gear, the Libre CR DL is the perfect weapon for any adventure, no matter how far away.


The Libre CR is getting a big upgrade with Shimano’s GRX 600 2×11 drivetrain. Shifting is smoother than ever and the wide gear range makes any mountain a mole hill. The Kona Race Light Carbon frame features a ton of mounts for carrying just about anything. Paired with Kona’s Verso carbon fork and its 3pack cage mounts and this bike is a seriously lightweight gear-hauler. Whether bikepacking, ripping the local gravel roads, or out on an epic summer-time century, the Libre is fast, efficient, and comfortable across any terrain.
