Product Details

12mm of rear suspension travel paired with solid carbon fiber leaf spring chain stays makes the Manta an excellent machine for randonneuring or gravel racing. It is lightweight, efficient, durable, and unparalleled when it comes to comfort and ride quality.

Founded upon the DNA from our road frames, we designed our Adventure platform to be as versatile as you. We build each frame to accept 700c, 650b, or both. The slackened head-tube and seat-tube angles allow for confidence on loose gravel roads, but with all the performance features to keep-up on the weekend group ride. If you prefer randonneur Adventures with frame bags, fender or rack mounts, you can travel with confidence and comfort. We build every frame with your exact needs in mind. The Adventure is yours!

Head Tube Extension Option:

Most Calfee Road and Adventure frames have an aggressive standard geometry. If desired, a head tube extension raises the cockpit for a less aggressive ride. Since every rider is custom, we leave this option up to you. Contact us if you have any questions regarding geometry or fit. A 1cm head tube extension is very common.


Paint Options:

The 5 Point Fade Option (Opaque to Translucent at every tube junction) is extremely popular. See examples here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/JzpgVNlo7RsyZUBa2
