Its internally routed cables and sealed Das Boot seat collar keep critical mechanical systems away from the elements on those especially adventurous adventures.

ABOUT THE SEARCH XR CARBON

If there is such a thing as a Do It All bike, the Search XR might be it. This slick, but hardy adventure-seeker blurs the lines between mountain and road, and pushes the limits of what you can expect from a drop bar bike.

With its generous tire clearance, rack, fender and bottle mounts, and lightweight adventure frame, the Search XR thrives off the beaten path and opens every ride up to whatever road and trail your heart desires.

Explore singletrack, tackle a gravel loop, or head out for an extended bike-packing excursion - The Search XR is up for whatever adventures you can imagine, and even those you don’t even know about yet.

CARBON FRAME AND FORK

The Search XR C’s lightweight carbon frame features size-scaled tubing that tunes frame compliance to the needs of every rider. Fatiguing vibrations are damped by curved and ovalized seatstays, bent chainstays, thinned seat and top tubes, and an optimized carbon fork design.

DESIGNED FOR ADVENTURE

Every Search XR is designed to excel on rough surfaces. Its angles are a little slacker and longer than conventional road bikes, creating a stable ride and built-in stability in varying terrain.

EFFICIENT FRAME

Front and rear 12mm thru axles plus an oversized head tube junction, downtube, BB shell and chainstays deliver lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer as well as control through rough terrain. So, the Search XR is stiff and efficient where you need it, but compliant and forgiving enough for all-day rides to wherever!

ACCESSORY MOUNTS

Multiple bottle cage mounts on the frame and fork, custom low key fender eyelets, and stealth rack mounts expand the Search XR’s versatility without sacrificing strength, lightweight or design. 

TIRE COMPATIBILITY AND SIZE SPECIFIC WHEELS

Every Search XR provides the same ride experience for all riders, regardless of height. To ensure smaller riders the best possible ride without any toe-overlap, the 45.5 and 48cm models are designed around 650b wheels, achieving the same angles and ride as the larger frames. Ample tire clearance for 650B x 2.1” or 700c x 28c-45c tires (up to 42c with full fenders) allows you to fine-tune the Search XR even further based on terrain and personal preference.

INTERNAL CABLES

Internal cable routing with adaptable port covers keeps cables tight and secure and prevents water from entering the frame. The Search XR is also compatible with a wide range of configurations such as 1x or 2x drivetrains in either Di2 or mechanical and is accommodating a stealth dropper post.
