Responsive and versatile gravel
Gravel A is a aluminum handmade frame, built specifically for gravel.
This is the right frame in the Full Dynamix range to ride on mixed paths, switching from pavement to white roads, for those who want a diverse gravel style without cycling for long distances.
The Italian tubes and the masterly TIG welding make Gravel A a product of excellent manufacturing and good responsiveness.
Handmade in Italy
Here's WHY EVERY GRAVEL A FRAME IS handmande BY ITALIAN ARTISANS
Forget about the cheap aluminum bulk imported from China with which chain stores and online shops are packed.
Gravel A is an Italian product that displays the fine craftsmanship of our welders mastering the art of creating bicycles.
The Italian framebuilders are artists of welding. When they take the torch in their hands it’s always to join the tubes through flawless welds, that create strong, long-lasting joints.
But Made in Italy is not just a choice that honours our artisanal heritage.
There are 3 practical reasons why our aluminum gravel frames are manufactured by Italian artisans:
- A gravel frame is constantly subjected to stress, so it has to be very resistant. During the welding phase, the framebuilder needs to be in perfect control of the temperature, in order to avoid overheating the tubes and thus making them more fragile and increasing the risk of cracks or breaking. It is a hard work, that requires time and patience. Basically the exact opposite of what Asian workers do to reduce the costs and increase the production volumes.
- Being in complete control of the building process gives us the possibility to keep testing and improving the innovative solutions generated in the development phase.
- Local handcrafting is the only way to create a product that is unique for the cyclist and custom made from specific anthropometric measurements.
Full Dynamix is an "gravel only" brand. The technologies of the frame are the result of studies and experiments that revolve around gravel cycling, developed by testing the outcome of every one of our choices directly on white roads.
DEDACCIAI AEGIS CUSTOM TUBES
In Italy, the metallurgical excellence in aluminum tubes is Dedacciai. Being in direct contact with Italian partners allows us to develop customized solutions that give shape to our vision of a gravel frame. This is exactly what we did for Gravel A, which is made from Aegis custom tubes.
front and rear thru-axle
Gravel A features the thru-axle both in the fork and in the rear triangle. Opposed to the quick release, the thru-axle increases the stiffness and eases the riding when you pedal at high speed, even though the terrain is particularly irregular and could make it difficult for you to control your bike.
tapered head tube
When things get rough, your bicycle should convey you a sensation of great reliability. Because of its reactivity, aluminum frames can sometimes be hard to tame: that's why we chose to equip Gravel A with a tapered head tube. The lower base, being larger, enhances the steering stiffness, giving you a better control of your bike when turning.
