New for 2021 is a stock fork that has three bottle bosses on either side for bikepacking cargo. There are also four new colorways: Forest & Coral, Black & White, Burgundy & Red, and Matte Desert & Black.
Beyond these two new updates, everything we know and love about the Waheela C remains:
- Adjustable geometry: our patented Tuning Chip rear dropout system allows the wheelbase to be lengthened or shortened by up to 20mm and the bottom bracket height to be raised or lowered by 4mm. This allows the Waheela C to transform from a confident, stable gravel bike (in the rear Tuning Chip position) to a nimble, agile option for CX races or local trails with tight corners.
- Giant tire clearance: this bike can fit 700c x 54mm, 650b x 54mm, or 29” x 2.1” tires. It’s a quick bike for racing gravel with a 700c x 35mm setup, and it’s been SO much fun riding local trails with 27.5” x 2.2”.
- EPS-molded carbon frame: it’s a lightweight bike that’s ready for a quick climb up the next punchy hill or sprinting away from the lead group.
- Unrivaled ride quality: the rider is centered over the wheels for extra confidence and stability, while the longer top tube adds an aggressive, racy feel. Meanwhile, bowed seat stays make for a compliant rear triangle that’ll absorb bumps in the road and give you comfort while you’re spending all day in the saddle.
