Specialized statement on COVID-19 Read Here
The AWOL Expert is equipped with everything you need to hit the road and head out on a great adventure.
Starting at the frame, it features heat-treated, custom-butted Cr-Mo tubing that's sure to stand up to years of hard riding and abuse. The geometry is also what you would called "dialed," as it's at once comfortable, efficient, and purpose-built to carrying big loads. We also gave this iteration a full bevy of features to further make it ready for the long haul, like fender and rack mounts, a kickstand plate (believe us, this is handier than you know with a loaded rig), and a Dynamo front hub that generates electricity to power lights without needing to plug-in.
For the spec, we gave it a wide range of gears and a triple Shimano Tiagra crankset, ultra-tough 45mm Borough Armadillo tires, and cable-actuated disc brakes. The road is calling, and you must go.
- The custom butted Cr-Mo steel frame provides plenty of stiffness, while still maintaining all-day compliance and comfort. Along with the integrated fender and rack mounts on both the frame and Cr-Mo fork, the AWOL provides the perfect blend of versatility and performance.
- Butted Cr-Mo fork w/ rack/fender mounts provide confident steering at a relatively low overall weight.
- Our Borough Armadillo tires perform on both paved and dirt roads, and their Armadillo casing prevents pesky punctures from ruining your day.
