State Bicycle Co. has launched its latest road model aptly called the Undefeated Road, marking the company’s second geared bike and first performance road bike to date.
The Undefeated Road is available in two build options or as a frameset, which features 7005 double-butted aluminum tubing, an oversized tapered head tube and a full carbon fork that come together to create what the company says is “a stiff, responsive, and fast ride”.
As a complete bike, the Undefeated Road is available with a SRAM Force AXS or Apex groupset, along with the choice of either 1x or 2x gearing.
Aesthetics played an important role in designing the Undefeated Road as well, which features a subtle rainbow flake clearcoat paint scheme combined with black build kits and trim to give it what the brand calls a “purposeful look”. Moreover, if you’re a fan of classic lines, you’ll find it refreshing how the Undefeated Road eschews the trend of dropped seatstays and aero tubing in favor of a traditional double-diamond silhouette.
SRAM Force AXS | MSRP: $2899.99
The SRAM Force eTap AXS Drivetrain features quick and precise electronic shifting over a lightweight 10-33 cassette. Riders can choose the simplicity of SRAM’s 1x system, or go for a wider range of gears by selecting the 2x crankset. All of this is sitting upon DT Swiss P1800 wheels that sport a wide, light and tubeless-ready aluminum rim, complemented DT Swiss’ proven hub system and a high-end build with bladed spokes and aluminum nipples.
SRAM Apex 1 | MSRP: $1299.99
Offering a simplified 1×11 drivetrain paired with an 11-32T Cassette, the Apex 1 build provides a gear range to meet the challenges of the road. The SRAM DoubleTap shifter provides smooth shifting, and the Mavic Aksium wheels wrapped in Michelin Dynamic Sport tires, glide over the road ahead. State’s stiff yet compliant Black Label 31.8mm handlebar and stem provide control in the cockpit.
As an extremely capable, nimble and responsive frame, the Undefeated Road’s aluminum construction can withstand the beatings of training, traveling, and commuting. The frameset includes a full carbon fiber fork with tapered steerer tube for light weight and stiffness and a fully-sealed FSA integrated headset for just $649.99.
