The 8.5 DS -or Dual Sport- hybrid seems to defy a label. Is it a hybrid? With a lightweight Alpha Gold aluminum frame, upright fit and 27-speed shifting, it makes for a great recreational sport bicycle. Is it a gravel road explorer? The adjustable SR Suntour suspension fork has a remote lockout lever on the handlebar for ease of use on smooth or bumpy terrain. Is it a commuter bike? Rainy days aren't as concerning with Shimano M355 hydraulic disc brakes, while rack and fender mounts add versatility. Internal cable routing keep the 8.5 DS looking sleek and clean, while an aperture for a DuoTrap S sensor (sold separately) in the left chainstay helps keep track of rides on your phone with your favorite app.
The 8.5 DS also boasts alloy Bontrager tubeless-ready wheels and LT2 knobby tires for a smooth ride and confident grip, no matter the surface. Shimano's Deore shifters and derailleurs add fingertip operation with mountain bike durability. An FSA Dyna Drive 48/36/26T triple crankset and 11-32T 9-speed cassette offers gearing for steep inclines as well as flat roads. An alloy Bontrager SSR seatpost, Bontrager Evoke 1.5 saddle, alloy handlebar and Blendr stem complete this useful machine.
