The frame-set constitutes triple cage mounts on top of the down-tube, double cage mounts under it, double cargo bag mount on the top tube, and double cage mounts on the seat tube. The carbon frame perfectly matches the full carbon disc fork with triple cage mounts.
Although the frame is lightweight, it features thru-axles that enhance its stiffness. The lightness makes it easier to ride for long distances. You will also enjoy quick wheel changes with the lightweight frame. Furthermore, frame details like D2 compatibility and internally routed cables for a slicker look guarantee the chance to upgrade and future proof.

Thanks to the tires, the Romax carbon is superfast. Best of all, the 47c tires have an incredible amount of traction and tremendously improve puncture resistance without giving up rolling resistance. In addition, the tires have extra volume which allows easy adjustment for air pressures to suit different riding styles.
You can trust the Romax carbon to offer you rugged reliability for all of your off-road adventures thanks to its brand new GRX 2 x 11 drivetrain made with gravel-specific ergonomics and optimized gearing options. With the Shimano GRX adventure 48/31T crankset and the 11-32 tooth 11-speed cassette, you will enjoy an evenly spaced full range of gearing for different riding needs including fast gravel rides, road rides, and hilly rides.
What’s more, the Romax carbon features Shimano GRX shifters, also known as brake levers, that are precise and powerful.

Like all the bikes on the Brodie Romax line, the Romax carbon comes with ergonomically designed dual-density hand grips for superior comfort even on the longest gravel adventuring rides. You wouldn’t need a pair of gloves to maintain a strong grip on the bike’s handles unless your hands get super-sweaty when you ride for long periods.
