Full-Dynamix announce new Gravel Bikes

Full Dynamix S

Battaglin Cicli have launched a new range of gravel bikes under the Full Dynamix name. The revived brand, originally launched in 1999 by Giovanni Battaglin to concentrate on cross-country mountain bikes, now offers customers a choice in material from carbon fibre to aluminium and steel for their exclusive gravel bikes.

The new Full Dynamix range comprises three models simply called the Gravel C, Gravel A and Gravel S, all of which are completely handmade in Italy at Battaglin’s factory in Marostica.

Gravel C

The Gravel C features a full 3K carbon tube-to-tube construction, allowing Full Dynamix complete control over the fabrication process.

Prominent features of the Gravel C are front and rear thru-axles, flat-mount dic brakes, internal cable routing, a PressFit BB92 bottom bracket, 1X and 2X drivetrain compatibility and clearance for 700 x 41 mm / 650 b x 50 mm tires.

The ‘all-out racer’ of the range. The ‘C’ is intended to do one thing and one thing only: Win.

Described as their ‘do it all’ frame, the ‘A’ will tackle long distance adventures and furious racing with aplomb.

Just like its carbon sibling, everything that makes a gravel bike a gravel bike are apparent on the Gravel C to include the decision to use a CNC machined 68mm bottom bracket shell that’s compatible with both mechanical and electronic groupsets, along with a full carbon monocoque fork.
