The Arise Tour employs a hybrid of modern and retro parts. Its 2x10 drivetrain pairs an FSA sub-compact crank and Shimano clutch rear derailleur to give a gargantuan range of gears, enough to get up and down the biggest hills. More traditional are its bar-end shifters and mechanical brakes that complement the dependable steel frame for the most arduous and remote tours. The Arise Tour’s chassis comes with five sizes to fit every rider. The smallest XS and S frame sizes employ a lower top tube to make hopping aboard, extra important when hauling panniers.
