Routt 45

Gravel and dirt, 45mm tire clearance, 3D printed flat mount brake mount, adventure riding, longer touring, bike packing

The ROUTT 45 is a workhorse gravel machine that’s aimed for adventure and versatility from tackling fast paced lunch rides to multi-day bike packing outings on ornery backwoods roads and trails.  Adding to the legacy of the ROUTT 45, we have UPDATED it with a few refinements for 2019.

Shortened stays give the ROUTT 45 increased snappiness for climbing and cornering agility, while retaining the stable handling and comfort of the original Routt 45.  Optimized for 700 x 30-45mm tires, with a maximum tire size of 700 x 45mm or 650 x 50mm tire clearance with compact double chain rings, or up to 42 tooth clearance with one by drivetrains. 

Next, we added a 3rd water bottle location as stock, so you can go further between watering holes.

The ROUTT 45 is packed with multiple performance-oriented features.  Perfect rear wheel and brake alignment come courtesy of our proprietary 6/4 titanium 3D-printed flat-mount disc mount.  To provide the greatest range of tire and wheel combination compatibility, the frame and fork are designed to accommodate up to 45mm tires with a geometry optimized for 700c wheels.  Standard builds come equipped with Moots full-carbon gravel/cross forks that conveniently feature hidden fender eyelets for foul weather riding and training. The ROUTT 45 is also compatiable with a LAUF gravel fork if would like to add a bit of suspension to your ride.    

And of course, the Routt 45 is made of US-made, seamless 3/2.5 titanium and comes in seven sizes, with custom geometry available to ensure a perfect fit for every rider.

NEW for 2019 are our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS, which provide a quicker delivery when choosing one of the curated build kits.  The MOOTS SELECT BUILDS come standard with our ETCHED finish but can be upgraded to a full array of finish options including our Signature Series anodized logos and patterns.  Visit our FINISHES page for the full menu and details. 

Like all Moots models, the ROUTT 45 is available with our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS featured below.  These frame specifications and build kits showcase our most popular options and inhouse recommendation for the pinnacle of performance.  Additionally, we aim to deliver our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS with the best lead time we can offer.  If you would like to take the deep dive into parts selection and frame options, you can CUSTOMIZE YOUR MOOTS BUILD using our build configurator.
