This, my friend, is what the Rove AL 650 is here for. It’s the road biker’s gravel/touring/do-it-all steed. It welcomes bigger tire clearance and more comfortable geometry. It provides everything you need for a fast, comfortable ride and nothing you don’t. It’s the perfect bike for commuting, partaking in weekend warrior adventures, or diving deeper into longer tours.
The Rove AL 650 is the 650b-wheeled companion to the Rove AL 700. For those riders looking for a 650b wheeled machine with all the features of its bigger sibling, look no further. This off-road gravel warrior is armed with a Shimano 2×8-Speed drivetrain, reliable and powerful Hayes mechanical disc brakes, and 47c WTB Venture Comp tyres, giving the Rove AL 650 the performance, agility and control for all-terrain riding.
Kona 6061 Aluminium
Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminium alloys are used extensively throughout their range of mountain and asphalt bicycles. A tough, durable, light alloy, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing’s wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so they can fine-tune a particular frame’s strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.
650b Wheels and Tyres
650b wheels and tyres have a similar overall diameter to a traditional 700c gravel or commuting tyre, but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, taller tyre. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and mixed-surface tyres means they can be run comfortably at lower pressures while still rolling quickly on a variety of surfaces. It’s the best of both worlds.
