LIGHTWEIGHT, YET BURLY. TIGHT, YET AGILE. POINT IN ANY DIRECTION AND GO. The ABLE begs to be ripped around on chunky gravel, hardpack dirt, fire roads and singletrack. Purpose-built for wider tires, but with a shorter rear end for telepathic handling. Proven on the brutal terrain of Unbound 200 where the ABLE was piloted to victory. SRAM has extended their wireless 12 speed AXS groupset into the Rival range of components that allows the convenience and precision of an electronic drivetrain at a much reasonable pricepoint than what has been available before. We are matching the SRAM 1x12 mullet group with Industry Nine 1/1 GRCX wheelset which provides and American made hub with an extremely light 25mm internal width rim. The ABLE is a high-performance off-road machine that tilts more towards the “mountain skinny” side of the gravel segment. It prefers a big tire but keeps a short rear end - in fact, it’s the same as the ALLROAD at 420mm. This is achieved by the most striking feature on the bike - the elevated drive-side chainstay. Getting a chainstay this short with high tire volume is a packaging exercise because the chainring, chainstay, and tire all compete for space behind the bottom bracket. On mountain bikes this problem is addressed by widening the bottom bracket -- but that affects Q factor in a negative way. When we made the decision to make the ABLE 1X-specific it opened the design envelope and ultimately led to the decision to elevate the chainstay. By moving it up and out of the way we could make it extremely wide resulting in an incredibly responsive ride. While our award-winning ALLROAD is a Swiss Army knife for a majority of mixed surface riding, when the path gets rambunctious its road-racing genes might seem lacking. We found ourselves on occasion wanting a bike that was equally engineered, but felt more at home on steeper, rockier and more rugged terrain. It was from this desire that the ABLE was born. It’s lightweight, tight, durable and agile. You can point it in any direction and go. The ABLE begs to be ripped around on singletrack, fire roads, hardpack dirt, and chunky gravel. Proven on the brutal roads of the 2019 Unbound Gravel where ALLIED athletes Colin Strickland and Amity Rockwell piloted their ABLEs to overall victory. The ABLE comes standard in the stock color combination of matte black with silver logos. However, you can customize to the color combo of your choice for a $300 upcharge with any standard gloss or matte combo. If you have a color in mind you don't find there, contact our customer support team so we can discuss the possibilities.
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.
