You spoke and we listened. Finally, here's a sporty comfort bike that runs as efficiently on gravel as it does pavement!

  • Features

    • Reconfigured Forza is truly all-purpose, as at home cruising a century ride as it is towing kids in a trailer or hopping curbs on the way to the store
    • With its new RST Mandy front fork and stable, puncture-resistant tires, Forza jumps from smooth to rocky surfaces with ease and confidence
    • Mandy fork provides 50mm travel to get you over life's little bumps; you can lock it out when a firm ride upfront makes more sense
    • Rugged, lightweight aluminum frame responds quickly to pedal pressure and is easily hoisted for storage or for mounting on a rack
    • ACE 17 rims and Formula Alloy hubs provide a big-wheel ride for cruising efficiently along roads and bike lanes
    • Relaxed frame geometry offers stable handling, and the Ritchey mountain flatbar places the rider in a comfortable, upright riding position
    • SRAM/Truvativ drivetrain provides 24 smooth-shifting gears for an easy transition from steep climbs to fast downhills
    • Kalloy angle-adjustable stem lets you dial in handlebar height for a perfect fit
    • Velo Plush saddle is anatomically contoured and padded for comfort
    • Accommodates a rear rack and fenders fore and aft—great for commuting or weekend getaways
    • Specs and images are subject to change
