The new Routt CRD (Complete Race Design) incorporates everything Moots has learned from a decade of making versatile gravel bikes, representing a distillation of the American brand’s rich history and desire to create a perfect gravel race machine with the purist in mind.
“The new Routt CRD enters the line-up as their flagship gravel race bike meant for speed across gravel and broken road surfaces, while maintaining legendary Moots ride quality. The Routt CRD continues to improve efficiency where power enters the bike around the BB and dropouts while isolating the rider with lighter tubing both in the seat stays and top tube for those all-day rides. Designed with the spirit of competition and the gravel racer in mind, the Routt CRD is optimized around 40-42c tires with plenty of clearance to spare,” boasts Moots.
The RSL (Race Super Light) tube set leads the way to save weight, while the updated 3D printed dropouts and brake mount pull the back end into precise alignment for quick accelerations and tracking over the roughest surfaces. The core of the bike starts off with a threaded T47 bottom bracket for wide groupset compatibility and the stiffest possible platform, while the rear end of the Routt CRD now features UDH compatibility for current and next-gen groupset accommodation. Moreover, the front end gets enhanced with an all-new integrated cockpit of Moots Own Design (MOD) and an improved version of the legendary Moots gravel fork—no wires or hoses to be seen.
“Gravel race tendencies, all-day comfort, and long-term durability in one integrated package that is the pinnacle of the Routt family of gravel bikes. This is Complete Race Design,” assures Moots. The new Routt CRD is available in the following builds:
Additionally, the MOD Component line is currently only available on Moots Bikes, with pricing and availability to be announced.
