The steel models of the Renegade series are widely regarded as some of the best gravel bikes under $2,000 made.
Built with Reynold's 520 chromoly steel, the S3 frameset is a noticeable improvement in ride quality both on road or off, smoother and more shock absorbing, when compared to similarly priced aluminum gravel bikes.
The S3 is the most popular model of the Renegades because it is the least expensive model equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, which are a big upgrade over cable actuated mechanic disc brakes.
The S3 is outfitted with a 2x10 GRX RX400 drivetrain. GRX is Shimano's gravel bike specific components that are more durable and multi-surface capable than their road equivalents were.
