Gravel is for life, not just for winter. We’re proud to present the latest addition to our Collection, The Adventurer.



A gravel bike, an adventure bike, a bike designed by hardy northern obsessives for genuine four season fun. A bike that says “yes please” regardless of what the sky is doing or where the terrain is going.

We have been inundated with requests for a stoic metal bike that will “take a battering” without being so over engineered that even the idea of riding it up a hill makes you break out into a sweat.

The Adventurer is sprightly enough to race cyclocross, if you really wanted. But we think most of you will forget the races and head off the beaten track. 

We’ve worked tirelessly to design a frame that can be many things to many riders. In its final form, The Adventurer is the kind of bike that sends you a DM whilst you’re at work on a dreary Thursday morning and asks you if you’ve got plans for the next bank holiday weekend. “We could just throw the bags on and go bikepacking, couldn’t we!” it says - “we could even take the tent, and the dog, and we could stop at that lovely pub you always pass when you’re dressed in lycra!”.*

In order to keep you riding for longer, the Adventurer has been designed with some really sensible features


  • Lightweight Steel Gravel specific geometry. Plenty of control for when the going gets tough but not so tall that road riding is a drag.

  • Lightweight carbon gravel specific fork.

  • Specced with 700x35c tyres for the best balance between getting to the gravel, and giving plenty of grip once you’re there. 

  • A choice of Shimano Sora (cable disc), Tiagra (hydraulic disc), or GRX400 (hydraulic disc) groupsets to suit your riding and budget.

  • Plenty of mounting points to ensure you can use a variety of bikepacking bags, bottle cages, and other bolt-on kits. Mudguard compatible mounts on the fork.

  • Externally routed, full length outers for easier maintenance whilst adventuring. 

  • 12mm thru axle front and rear. More control, less faff. 

  • Northroad gravel specific finishing kit all round.

  • 3 downtube, 2 on the seattube, mudguard and pannier mounts on the stays, 2 on the toptube.

  • A Series 1 exclusive finish, “Buff & Black”. It means business
