An outstanding bike gets upgrades, starting with wider tubeless tires and an even better frame!
The Avail Advanced series of road bikes has seen improvements to make the bike more effective, more comfortable and even more reliable. The frameset gets a new Advanced Composite carbon fiber "recipe", reducing weight and improving power transfer with every pedal stroke. Up front, the Avail Advanced 1 is equipped with an Advanced-Grade Composite all-carbon fork; an upgrade from the previous alloy/carbon model. A tapered OverDrive head tube improves handling in high-speed turns and descents. A tall head tube and more upright fit accommodates a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- for long days in the saddle. The crankset and bottom bracket are set slightly lower than the previous generation, making the bike feel more planted at high speeds.
Shimano's excellent 11-speed Ultegra components are found throughout the drivetrain, including the front derailleur, Shadow-style long-cage rear derailleur, 11-34T cassette and the adjustable-reach dual-control levers. The rear Ultegra derailleur is a clutch-equipped "RX" version that prevents chain drop when tackling rough pavement and railway crossings. An alloy Shimano 50/34T compact crankset does power delivery duties. Precise shifting, long service life and easy operation are all found with every shift on the Avail Advanced 1. The hydraulic disc brakes are also Shimano Ultegra units, offering excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.
The Avail Advanced 1 comes with tubeless alloy wheels and tires factory installed. The PR-2 Disc wheelset offer an aerodynamic rim profile to slice through the air, while wide-flange hubs improve lateral strength. The 700x32c tubeless Gavia Fondo 1 tires boast a comfy ride quality along with excellent puncture protection with the included sealant. A Liv Approach saddle sits atop a clever D-Fuse Composite carbon fiber seatpost that flexes slightly when crossing railway tracks, broken pavement and potholes. Up front, an alloy Contact stem and Contact SL D-Fuse road handlebar complete this outstanding century conquerer.
