Once upon a time a bunch of mountain bikers dreamed up something wild: a drop bar bike that felt like a mountain bike and rode like a mountain bike. It was made of steel for that added bump absorption, had powerful SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes and 1x drivetrain. It had a wider bar with a 16-degree flare that made for more aggressive descending. The Sutra LTD came to reality in all of its dreamy glory and is an absolute riot on-road or off.
“The Sutra LTD is without a doubt a drop-bar bike built for off-road adventure. In addition to its ability to clear 29x2.1” tires, and a smorgasbord of bottle and rack mounts, it’s almost unmatched in the mainstream bike market for its mountain-bike like character.”
