Holdsworth's new Elan is a classic road bike with a twist. Compact frame angles, sloping top tube and a short head tube are paired with disk brake functionality to provide the perfect all-rounder, a bike that demands to be ridden with energy and enthusiasm. With double butted steel tubing it's every bit a Holdsworth but with the additional advantage of powerful braking that only disk brakes can offer.

  • Double butted steel frame
  • TIG welded frame, investment cast dropouts
  • SRAM Apex 1X
  • Hydraulic disk brakes Full Description

Description

Frameset: No other material offers the feel of steel. It absorbs road shock and lays out a magic carpet over the roughest road surfaces. Built from lightweight double butted Cro-Mo tubing and designed for disk brakes the Elan offers a confidence-inspiring ride on any road.

The Elan frameset features a sloping top tube and short head tube typical of 'compact geometry' bikes. Shorter frame tubes save weight and you'll appreciate every saved gram when you're powering up the hills on the Elan. A steep seat tube puts you over the cranks for the easiest pedal stroke while shorter chainstays and a carefully considered front end package deliver agile handling that makes the Elan simply a delight to ride.

As you'd expect from a bike with English brand heritage we've specified a BSA bottom bracket and a slender 27.2mm seat post to complement the Elan's traditional styling. The Elan is finished off with investment cast dropouts and brazed on full-length mudguard mounts so you can enjoy it all year round. Created for disk brakes you'll ride safely in the knowledge that no matter how aggressively you attack the corners that you'll be able to pull up to a stop quickly whatever the weather conditions.

Groupset: SRAM Apex 1 is a 1x 11 speed groupset that brings a host of great new features to the party. A single front chainring with 'Narrow-wide' tooth profile ensures chain retention. Add in the extra chain tension that comes from the 'clutch mech' design and you have the best chain security you can ride. SRAMs wide-range cassette to give you the maximum gear options for powering up and down the trails, whilst powerful Apex 1 HRD hydraulic brakes give effortless stopping power and great modulation so you can finesse your braking efforts to suit the surface conditions. Apex 1 brings all of SRAM's cuting edge off-road technology to the entry level trail bike rider. There's an awful lot to love and a lot of new roads to ride.

Wheelset: Gipiemme Roccia Disk. Gippeme are well known for their alloy and carbon fibre race wheels, now they've put their all into creating a practical, value for money 29"/ 700c disc brake wheelset. Built for road and off-road use the Gippemme Roccia is supremely versatile, it's equally at home on our cyclocross bikes as it would any of our Gravel Adventure bikes. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is the perfect do it all 700c wheelset.

Designed for the modern road cyclist who enjoys cycling 365 days of the year the Elan blends the best of modern frame geometry concepts with the smooth riding feel that steel delivers better than any other frame material.
