Allied ABLE Custom Build Rival AXS XPLR
LIGHTWEIGHT, YET BURLY. TIGHT, YET AGILE. POINT IN ANY DIRECTION AND GO.
The ABLE begs to be ripped around on chunky gravel, hardpack dirt, fire roads, and singletrack. Purpose-built for wider tires, but with a shorter rear end for telepathic handling. Proven on the brutal terrain of Unbound 200 where the ABLE was piloted to victory.

Building a chainstay this short with high tire volume is a packaging exercise because of the chainring, chainstay, and tire all compete for space behind the bottom bracket. By moving the ABLE chainstay upa and out of the way we could make it super-wide resulting in an incredibly responsive ride.
A 1x drivetrain is quickly becoming the inductry standard for gravel: You'll always find the right gear at the right time. The ABLE is 1xSpecific, which allows us to elevate the chainstay for tire clearance without resorting to a superwide mountain bike-like Q-factor.
The ABLE is designed around a 700x42c: This is the tire size we recommend for optimum BB height and steering geometry.) But if you ride in really chunky rocky terrain the ABLE can adapt with 650c Wheels and tires as big as 47mm in the rear and 55mm in the front.
Four Sets of Bottle Mounts - one on each side of the downtube, one set on the seat tube and a top tube mount ideally suited for a bolt on bag.
Crafted one frame at a time in ALLIED's Headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas to ensure each bike is built to the highest standard of quality possible.
