Adventures can be hard work. But that’s half the magic.
Maxime Barat is a man of distance. A teacher, a bikepacker and a storyteller. Along with hearing his tips for successful bikepacking, we wanted to find out what drives him to turn the pedals day after day on all manner of terrain.
Barat describes himself as a bikepacker that “occasionally” becomes an endurance rider using bikepacking equipment to go further and faster. As plainly as he puts this, his tales of adventure make you want to immediately ride your bike as far and as courageously as he does. He’s impressively accomplished - twice finisher of the Transcontinental and third at the 2,200 km French Divide - but for him, it’s all about travelling light, exploring, and sharing moments with friends.
In the past two months alone, he’s ridden 3,700 kilometres, of which a not-insignificant 2,700 were off-road and frequently on mountain bike trails better suited to multiple inches of travel. URS has been there throughout.
“On last weekend’s trip I only saw full-sus enduro bikes, who were faster than me on the downs but I go uphill much quicker. The traction thanks to the MTT is unbelievable. And isn’t that what counts? On a bike you spend a lot of time going uphill.” He has a point. Adventures can be hard work. But that’s half the magic.
Optimized for a modern, aggressive gravel riding style. URS features a slack 70˚ head angle to create a long front-end and wheelbase for incredible stability.
