Chunky Gravel Exploring | Beyond Gravel | 2.4" Tire Capability

Routt ESC

Escape to anywhere

You like escaping through the deepest gravel that leads to forgotten two tracks with a single-track loop thrown in for good measure. Your escape route is anything you make it with this set up.

Adding to the legendary Routt line up is the Routt ESC. The Routt ESC is an escape ready drop bar bike that can hold up to a 2.4″ tire and take you well beyond the far-off routes you’ve been dreaming of. Leaving your front door on a bike that can link your favorite routes together as they turn from pavement to gravel to hidden gems of single track and back again is what the ESC is all about. The ESC is equipped with three frame bottle locations as well as two three pack mounts on the fork to allow for you to get lost without wondering about the next refuel stop.

Wide gear range and a 38 tooth chainring allow big roll out and gears to climb where the goats reside. An oversized tube set, and massive fastback seat stays give this bike backbone to perform across all terrain, loaded or unloaded.

The Bottom Line:

Perfect all-round gravel use, gravel tour with bags, adventure seeker, the look and ride of modern gravel.

Legacy: Think of the Routt ESC as an updated version of the much loved and playful BAXTER. The Routt ESC adapts well from deep gravel, forest double track and those sweeping single track dips. Don’t worry BAXTER, your legacy lives on in the ESC.
