Following  the success of the original BOMBTRACK BEYOND+, the German maker of steel shred sleds will begin 2018 with the introduction of the BEYOND+ ADV. The steel adventure bike looks like a significant improvement to the bikepacking and adventure experience. Featuring mas­sive 29+ wheels on WTB i45 rims, the larger wheel platform offers smooth rolling over even the worst terrain. This monster truck of a bikepacking rig also employs SRAM’s Eagle 12-speed tech­nology and a massive rang­ing 10-50t cassette while still keeping its ideal chain-line. The Jones ‘Loop’ handlebar was designed for offering control & comfort while touring, with a variety of hand placement positions.

The BEYOND+ ADV ships with a monocoque carbon fork, adorned with cage and rack mounts and internal dynamo cable routing for the front hub. Util­izing the 29+ wheel platform, the bike rolls on WTB ‘Scraper’ i45 double wall sleeved rims shod with WTB ‘Ranger’ 29×3.0” tires.

The SRAM ‘GX Eagle’ 12-speed, in combination with its 32t chainring in the front, allow the ADV to crawl even the steepest of climbs, fully loaded.  Through axles in the front & rear are standard and provide security for heavy loads down rough trails.

The ADV’S seat tube offers a stealth dropper post cable exit, without doubt, one of the best upgrades you can make to your bikepacking bike as it allows you to lower your saddle height while riding, giving you much more space to move around on the bike while descending.

The rearward extensions of the Jones ‘Loop’ h-bar allow extra leverage and a wider hand position – be it for comfort or power. The rather short 80mm stem and the 710mm foam grips do complement the ADV’s perfect steering, even when fully loaded. While having mounts for bottle cages and the dropper post routing on the upper side of the downtube, there’s even more bottle cage posts on the underside next to Rohloff compatible routing.
