With the Gravelmaster you can choose your own way. Literally. Where the racing bicycle has to give up, the Gravelmaster is going the extra mile. Not your bike, but you decide where to cycle. Riding beautiful forest trails or exhilirating dirt roads has never been more fun. The ultimate feeling of freedom.
The slightly wider tires offer you grip and control. The ergonomic dropbar ensures that you can choose the best position. Comfortable or a little lower if preferred. And if you choose the Santos racks, you can also take a lot of luggage with you. For an adventurous bikepacking trip or a nice long cycling holiday.
Carefree riding, low maintenance
Want to ride lots of carefree kilometers? Opt for the reliable and user-friendly internal Rohloff gear hub with Santos belt drive. It transforms your Gravelmaster into a low-maintenance and super strong travel partner.
The Rohloff hub has 14 gears and is available in 6 colors.
Longer lifespan, less maintenance
With the right belt and sprockets the bike's drive system is super durable. The Gravelmaster has this durable Santos belt drive. That means fixed rear dropouts (so your rear wheel is always straight) and a Gates belt drive with extra strong CDX-EXP sprockets. It's the ultimate system for lots of silent kilometers.
A unique combination
A Gravelmaster is equipped with a Rohloff hub. This hub is reliable, super durable and low maintenance. Choose the smooth race shifters from Co-Motion or race shifters (from Sram, for example) to operate it. They can both be mounted on a dropbar.
The combination of a Rohloff hub and race shifters is unique. The neat Gebla click-box ensures that you can still retain the shifting feeling of a racing bike with a hub gear. So for the real enthusiasts!
Also available with Campagnolo Ergopower shifters with Hope RX 4 hydraulic disc brakes.
Comfort and control
The Gravelmaster handlebars are a bit different. A nice race bend with just a little more position options than classic dropbars.
Take, for example, the Ergotec Rando Ergo handlebar (right). It is slightly angled at the stem which makes you sit a bit higher and therefore more comfortable. The bar ends are a bit wider than the traditional racing handlebars. Handy if you are going on long trips and are going to tackle different types of terrain.
The Syntace Race handlebar (left) or the Ergotec Rando Classic handlebar (middle) are also a good choice. Just try it out on the Santos bike or during a test ride outside, because every rider is unique and has his or her own preference.
The Gravelmaster frame fits tires from 35 to 60 mm. You can mount narrow gravel racers or fat mountain bike tires. Just what you like best.
Strong and durable
The fixed front fork has been specially developed by Santos. Slender and straight, made of strong and durable CroMo steel. Especially for disc brakes. With lugs for lighting and a mudguard. And the possibility to mount a lowrider rack.
