Steamboat Springs, CO (November 14, 2016) -- The latest addition to the Moots Race Super Light (RSL) line up is the new Routt RSL. Incorporating new technology such as a 3D printed titanium dropout featuring a flat mount disc brake mount, a 142 x 12 thru-axle as well as Moots’ RSL internally butted tube set ensures a lightweight, stiff and durable frame. The Routt RSL also features a new Moots gravel/cross full carbon fork with 12mm thru-axle, flat mount and recessed fender mounts.

“We’re excited to add the ROUTT RSL to our squad of gravel bikes offering our customers a high performance mixed terrain model,” said Moots Marketing Manager, Jon Cariveau. “The Routt RSL’s longer top tube and lower front end places the rider in a more aggressive position, delivering a very precise handling ride ideal.”

  • Moots cross/gravel fork w/flat mount & thru-axle
  • 44mm head tube
  • 3D printed rear dropout
