The C2 is our favorite Renegade and the least expensive full carbon fiber model.
The Renegade is all about exploration and satisfies your gear-carrying needs with mounts for fenders, a rear rack, front low-riders and three front triangle water bottles, as well as providing a large front triangle for fitting a frame bag if you prefer the bikepacking way.
The shock dampening carbon fiber frame with clearance for up to 40mm wide tires and thru-axle dropouts give it comfort and stability on a wide variety of terrain.
Equipped with a mix of Shimano's gravel specific GRX components including hydraulic disc brakes, a sub compact 46/30 crankset and top of the line GRX800 front and rear derailleurs.
700 x 37 WTB Riddler tubeless ready tires are mounted on Stans Crest S1 tubeless disc rims, tubeless-ready wheels are a great match for carrying you into the unknown, and full internal cabling means you can take your rig through the muck with confidence.
Finally the Ritchey bar and stem combo, Jamis carbon seatpost, and a Selle Royal Asphalt saddle complete this build, giving you a super-versatile bike that's capable of being the only bike you may ever need.
