All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment.
A.L.I.C.E. is possibly the ultimate adventure bike: designed for world travel, bike-packing, gravel-grinding and grand days out.
So, it’s time to take the trip you’ve been dreaming about for years but, for whatever reason, haven’t. Be it that a trip around the world, a trip to the hills…or that trip to the shops…without the car!
Limited only by your imagination, A.L.I.C.E. is designed for the finest experiences on two wheels. This is the bike that every rider needs, whatever the adventure. Hey, it might even put some fun into the daily commute.
Adventure is in the DNA of A.L.I.C.E. Reliable, tough and calmly confident, she’s your trustworthy travelling companion. Uncertainty may always be part of the adventure but never for your bike. Whatever the terrain, from grass-up-the-middle roads to endless singletrack (and everything in between), A.L.I.C.E. will keep you, your kit, and your smile safely in place.
Born to be wild.
Overnight, overland and maybe even over-ambitious: go further, go higher, cross borders and see wonder-lands [see what we did there?]. Ultimately, A.L.I.C.E. will take you on the adventure that you want.
“…looking for adventure in whatever comes our way……like a true nature’s child, we were born, born to be wild.”

Your frame size will depend on your choice of bars and stem. If you’re planning on building A.L.I.C.E. with MTB bars, then you should consider sizing up. Recommended sizes (below) are with drop bars.
|Rider Height||5’2” – 5’6”||5’6” – 5’10”||5’10 – 6’2”||6’2” – 6’6”|
|Rider Height||158cm – 168cm||168cm – 178cm||178cm – 188cm||188cm – 198cm|
Drop bars typically have a reach of between 70mm and 110mm: the brake hoods add another 30mm (approximately).
