Thanks to the wonders of social media, we’ve loved the ability to see how our Arise bikes get transformed by their owners to fit their daily needs, from commuting, doing a school run or even as a weekend CX toy.
The Hook AL takes our established Hook bikes and gives it a more race-oriented flavor. The geometry has been tweaked and components selected to back up this purpose, from the Clement MXP tires to the Apex 1×11 driver train.
Built on a 27.5” rim and using a wider tire produces a wheel with the same outer diameter as a typical 700x28c. This means it’s possible to run bigger knobby mountain bike tires, with all the grip they offer, yet retain the geometry of a CX/gravel bike.
Hook3 is constructed from T700 high-modulus carbon fiber in a selective layering technique, the frame and fork can have strength and stiffness increased in areas where it’s needed whilst maintaining an optimum 8.2kg weight.
