For best results, just add gravel, dirt and mud.
The Vault has quickly garnered a reputation as the most versatile, performance-driven cross/gravel bike in the sport. With wins in the Rock Cobbler gravel race and a first and third place finish in the Trans America Bike Race, the Vault has dominated everything from gravel races to ultra-endurance events. The Vault boasts the next generation of cyclocross/gravel racing geometry, with a lower bottom bracket height, shorter chain stays, class leading tire clearance and smooth, polished lines designed for quick, easy shouldering to get over any obstacles. The attention to detail on the Vault is second to none.
The Vault comes equipped with the latest in cyclocross frame technology, including full internal routing for mechanical or electronic drivetrains. Out of the gate the Vault was designed with a focus on disc brake optimization, making sure the Vault would be the ultimate disc brake cross bike. However, we did not stop there. We understand that for traditional cross races thereís still a desire to run cantilever brakes in certain racing applications. Because of this, the Vault features full cantilever capabilities with recessed (hidden) threaded inserts in the seat stays and fork, and dropouts that convert from 135mm disc brake spacing back to 130mm road spacing. Whether youíre new to cross racing, looking to enter your first gravel race or a seasoned veteran, the Vault sets a higher bar for ride, style and tuned performance while redefining what is possible in the world of cyclocross and gravel racing.
- Internal cable routing adapts easily to either electronic or cable actuated shift systems. While the stealthy internal top tube brake routing can be totally disguised in disc brake form or cleanly hidden out of the way with cantilever brakes making portaging your bike a clean, snag-free affair.
- The Vaultís 1.5 inch tapered steerer fork with oversize crown optimizes stiffness, increases steering precision, provides great mud clearance while eliminating brake chatter and can be used with either cantilever or disc brakes.
- The Vault frame features the BB386EVO bottom bracket system (designed by our own Chris Cocalis). This maximum size BB greatly increases torsional rigidity and strength and improves power transfer for a more efficient ride while also providing for more tire clearance to clear the widest rims on the market.
- The Vault converts seamlessly from cantilever to disc with our innovative and clean removable brake post system, while the Vaultís carbon rear dropouts incorporate a dual insert system which allows easy conversion between 130mm and 135mm spacing for use with either standard road or disc brake specific wheels designs.
