Louis Garneau Axis 4 Road Bike 2021
Cycling is meant to be fun, inclusive, inspiring, and so much more. Some of our best ideas come from casual rides with our friends, or going on a nice leisurely solo ride to clear our head. We designed the Axis series of bikes for this exact purpose. We wanted a bike that defied expectations because the minute you try and define something, the status quo will change.
The world is ever evolving, and the Garneau Axis bicycles provide a constant foundation to allow room to breathe. The Axis 4 is a great entry road bike that’s packed with trustworthy features.
We used our hydroformed S-6 aluminum technology for the frame, threw on a carbon fork, and equipped it with a Shimano 2x8 drivetrain to tackle those hills without reducing your top speed. Big volume 700 x 30c tires keep things rolling smooth and fast no matter the road surface.
• A quality frame and components and a carbon fork! No corners were cut to retain its affordability
• Rack and fender ready, making it more versatile
• Vittoria Zaffiro smooth rolling 700 x 30c high volume tires
• 2x8-speed Shimano Claris groupset with subcompact cranckset and low climbing gear perfect for new riders
