Travers DIRTi (Gravel frame)

DIRTi frame is available for pre-order now for delivery around the first week in august


The DIRTi has been in development for about 2 years well before the “Gravel” craze took off! the concept behind the DIRTi frame was to produce a long distance road bike that could be handle both on and off road.  To be honest, the DIRTi frame fills a frustration of mine, when out on my road bike I would see a cool looking off road trail snaking away but being on the road tyres I could only wonder where it went but now with the DIRTi I (you) can explore further a field.

The DIRTi is designed around a standard 12 x 142 MTB disc hub so there is a massive selection to choose from. The frame also comes as standard with a 68mm wide PF30 BB so it can be run with a road 30mm BB axle or easily converted to a single speed set-up with an aftermarket Eccentric Bottom Bracket. The best thing about the DIRTi frame is that it can easily adapt to different styles of ridding. You can run the frame with either a Single or Double chainset, the cable mounts can be easily removed for a clean set up for single speed or 1x front chain ring (and gears at the back) or added to to take extra cables or even Di2 with the seat tube already pre-drilled for cable access to run a seat post battery.

The DIRTi Fills the gap between the RUSSTi and the Road Elite with its go anywhere abilities. The DIRTi makes from a great winter road training bike or commuter.

  • Up to 42mm tyres front and back (using the DIRT Prong fork)
  • 12 x 142 rear hub spacing
  • 1x or 2x front chainring
  • Stable geometry for long days in the saddle

The DIRTi has a few tricks up its sleeve with the ability to carry more than your average Touring/Road bike, subtle rack mounts are built into the Seat Stays and Chain Stay bridge, these also double as an ideal place to mount your Go Pro camera. The DIRTi frame also comes with 2x bottle cage mounts inside the main frame triangle plus an extra triple cage mount that will take a standard bottle cage for extra water carrying duties or and “Anything Cage”.
