Break-Away Outback Frameset

Size

Description

Tom Ritchey rides about 10,000 miles per year, and he loves those long boundless rides where the surface changes from gravel to tarmac and everything in between. Combine that with his more than 40 years of designing and building bicycles, and it’s no wonder the Outback has become an icon in the gritty world of gravel and adventure bikes.

Tom also loves to travel. Inspired by an inherent passion for experiencing different cultures and a ceaseless desire to explore the world by bike, Tom designed the new Outback Steel Break-Away® for those of us that appreciate the versatility of the Outback and possess the wanderlust to travel with it to far-off destinations – this bike is for everyone who has demanded a steel Outback Break-Away over the past few years.

The Outback Steel Break-Away easily and quickly disassembles to fit into its own included sturdy travel case, which helps you avoid airline extra baggage fees. Once you arrive at your destination, the bike assembles with ease - allowing you to quickly get out and go.

In addition to its liberating and innovative Break-Away design, the Outback Steel Break-Away sports several practical and adaptable features that offer riders the ability to chase epic ride experiences beyond the end of the road and the end of the day. Rack and fender mounts help to keep things dry and expand the load-carrying capacity for longer bikepacking adventures, while clearance for 700c x 48mm or 650b x 2.0in tires opens up a whole new world of possibilities. The frame accepts flat-mount disc calipers, and the new all-carbon fiber Ritchey Adventure Fork with multi-purpose mounts on the legs gives you more places to stow the supplies you gather at the last café – wherever that may be.
