Waheela S is optimized for improved stability and confidence on rough terrain.
The rider is centered over the wheels, which places less weight on front wheel compared to most other gravel bikes.
Stack & Reach
Progressive stack and reach design allows us to cover a full range of rider sizes with only four different frame sizes.
Head & Seat Tube Angles
Consistent head and seat tube angles across all frame sizes provides the same great experience for riders of all sizes.
Waheela is not a drop bar mountain bike. It’s a gravel-grinding beast that can clear 29x2.1 tires.
Waheela S uses Reynolds 520 steel to produce a strong, light bike with a supple yet lively ride quality. The tubes also feature an electro-deposited (ED) coating inside and out for rust protection.
700c? Check! 650b? Double check! 29er? Triple check! Waheela has massive tire clearance.
The patent pending Tuning Chip™ system provides 20mm of chainstay length and 4mm of bottom bracket height adjustment, allowing you to fine tune your ride.
