The steel models of the Renegade series have been expanded and upgraded for 2020 and the S3 replaces the best selling model Renegade, the Expat.
Built with Reynold's 520 chromoly steel, the S3 frameset is a noticeable improvement in ride quality over similarly priced aluminum bikes both on road or off.
The S3 is likely to be the most popular model of the Renegades, especially since it is equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, which are a HUGE upgrade over cable actuated mechanic disc brakes.
Outfitted with GRX RX400, Shimano's new gravel bike specific components, that are more durable and multi-surface capable than their road equivalents. RX400 is GRX equivalent to Shimano Tiagra.
