The Sportif bucks all the time honored reasons not to ride a bike. It’s comfortable, it’s sporty, it’s well-equipped, and quite a lot of bike for the price. It’s everything you need to get out the door and go. Taking geometry cues from our top-level endurance bike, the Gran Fondo, the Sportif's longer wheelbase and taller headtube position the rider efficiently to reduce arm fatigue and back strain while on the road.
Models with endurance geometry feature a taller headtube and longer chainstay that put the rider in a more upright riding position and increases bicycle stability providing a fast and spirited ride but without the discomfort of an aggressive race posture.
