We started RONDO because we wanted to create bikes, that are beautiful - technically and visually. Bikes that stand out from the crowd. We started RONDO because we wanted to change the way drop bar bikes are perceived both, roadies and mountain bikers.
The Future Is Beyond Tarmac.
The Ruut range was born from the need to have a really versatile bike. One that would be comfortable enough for backpacking and long distance riding, but at the same time would retain a clearly sporty character.
At Rondo we are all competitive guys - we ride fast, we race - but we don't need a bike for the CX World's. What we want from a drop bar bike is to be able to go long, and go fast - especially on rough roads. So, after over two years of development, we came up with a tool that we believe is the ultimate solution for real-world riders.
Thanks to the unique TWINTIP fork you can change your position and adjust the steering character of the bike.
The first setting, with steeper angles, smaller trail and a lower riding position will be the choice for racing and dynamic, sporty riding on smooth roads. The alternative fork setting gives the bike slacker angles, longer trail and a bit more relaxed riding position, perfect for long distance adventure riding and endurance training. It also gives the rider a lot of confidence in challenging offroad terrain, especially on fast, steep downhills.
