Roads aren't always smooth, and adventure doesn't have limits. These were our thoughts when we set out to build the Newroad WS - a bike that will allow you to keep riding where other road bikes fear to tread. Nimble, adaptable and rugged enough to take tarmac, gravel, mud and just about any surface you care to mention in its stride, it'll open your eyes to new possibilities. With a purpose-designed aluminium frame and carbon bladed fork, there's ample clearance to run up to 40mm width tyres for superb grip, comfort and control - we chose Schwalbe's G-One Allround tyres for their great perforance. Shimano's reliable Tiagra 10 speed transmission puts the gear you need for any eventuality right at your fingertips, and Tektro Spyre disc brakes offer ample all-weather stopping power. The only question is, where will your next ride take you?

When we set out to develop the Nuroad WS we had a destination in mind, but no specific route by which to get there. We did, however, have a lot of experience building great race and cyclocross bikes. Figuring that this would be a great place to start, we combined the best of both genres to create our new, super-adaptable all-rounder. So, for example, the Nuroad WS's geometry is based on the comfort, stability and agility of our Attain WS series. We made sure there's plenty of clearance to run wide, grippy and comfortable tyres up to 40mm width, and even left room for mudguards too. Internal cable routing keeps your gears shifting cleanly even when the mud and water's flying around, there's a replaceable gear hanger and the carbon fork blades help take some of the vibration out of rough surfaces, so that you stay comfortable even on long rides.
