Rondo RUUT CF1


Award   START-UP WINNER 2017
Category   Start-Up
Company   Rondo

World’s first Vario Geometry gravel bike. Thanks to the unique TWINTIP fork you can change your position and adjust the steering character of the bike. The first setting, with steeper angles, smaller trail and a lower riding position will be the choice for CX racing and dynamic and sporty riding. The alternative fork setting gives the bike slacker angles, longer trail and a more relaxed riding position, making it ideal for long distance adventure riding. But that’s not all - the RUUT is one of the few bikes out there that offers the option to use big volume 700c rubber, or even mount massive 2.1’ knobby tires on 650b hoops.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Functionality
  • Design
  • Workmanship

Jury Statement

Even though still a young company, Rondo produces an astonishingly high quality of finish. What makes the Ruut CF1 so special is the option of adjusting the forks, allowing the rider to adapt the bike for wheel size and terrain. Rondo is thus injecting versatility into the gravel bike segment.
