Actually, scratch that. Adventure’s always been sexy. But the world’s two-wheeled explorers just got a very good lookin’ piece of kit to hit the trails with – Brother’s new Kepler Disc.
We had a great (if extremely wet) time riding with Will from Brother across the wilds of Exmoor a few weeks back. He was using a pre-disc Kepler for that trip, and it proved a very capable ride, so we’re looking forward to seeing what this new iteration can do. Hopefully we’ll get to test ride one at Pannier.cc‘s upcoming Dark Peak Weekender.
In the meantime, here’s a few words about the new bike from Will:
“Built around our legendary all-purpose adventure frame, the bike is designed to take on whatever challenge is thrown at it – whether that’s thrashing along gravel trails, a weekend bikepacking trip or even a full blown transcontinental tour. Built with double butted Cr-mo tubing making for a tough yet lightweight ride, which will keep going for years to come. It comes equipped with SRAM Apex WiFli, a lightweight compact double groupset with an extra wide range of gears to help you up those steeper climbs. Deep section Alex rims laced to Formula sealed bearing hubs make for a great looking and even better rolling wheelset, wrapped in Continental Cyclocross tyres for when the going gets tough. Last but not least the Hayes CX Expert disc brakes will give you total confidence when stopping in all conditions.”
