The ECHO isn’t an everyday racing beast. It’s actually two everyday racing beasts, each with a distinct personality. The SRAM Force AXS is our favorite build as it hits the best balance in performance where you absolutely need it and spares a few of the gram shaving splurges on the Red group. The wireless 12-speed shifting provides a huge range of gearing, with precision and reliability never available before on mechanical drivetrain systems. Our standard configuration comes paired with Industry Nine’s very lightweight UL250 CX wheels and the all-new WTB Vulpine ultra-fast rolling tubeless gravel tire in 700x40, but you can select the exact wheel and tire combo to build your beast as you please.
At the heart of the ECHO’s genetic code is pure unadulterated speed - the ability to transform from a road race thoroughbred to a versatile, agile gravel bike with a simple switch of flip chips at the front and rear dropouts. These eccentric chips and corresponding dropout design allow the rider to easily change the bike geometry, effectively changing the chainstay length and fork length by 1 cm. The difference transforms the bike from a road machine with 415mm chainstay length, 368mm fork length, 73-degree headtube angle, and tire clearance for up to 30mm, to a gravel bike with 425mm chainstay length, 378mm fork length, 72.5mm headtube angle, and 40mm tire clearance - all within a 10-minute switch of dropout chips. Pure road performance one day, gravel race-ready the next. One bike. No compromise.
The ECHO Stem is a fully integrated system designed in tandem with the fork. It conceals the cables while using a standard headset allowing the rider to easily swap stem lengths, and it works with a growing list of handlebars designed with integrated cables in mind. The ECHO stem system is the simplest and most user-friendly on the market today. The cables run through a channel on the top of the stem and are concealed by a faceplate, top cap, and the steerer tube. Headset adjustment is moved from the traditional position at the top of the stem to a threaded portion on the bottom of the stem, effectively increasing the steerer clamp length to provide headset preload, much like a threaded headset. The Echo stem is available in 6 sizes at 10mm increments (80-130mm) and is a -6 degree drop. Like all things designed by Allied, the ECHO stem is made in our Bentonville factory.
