NB:Finishing kit differs from that shown in images.

The Holdsworth Stelvio breathes new life into the touring bike. Built for comfort on long rides when hauling a heavy load, the Stelvio is equally suited to a weekend in Wales as it is trekking across a continent. Comfort and practicality are artfully blended together in this classically proportioned touring /adventure bike

  • Double butted steel frame
  • Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset
  • Pannier and mudguard mounts
  • Avid BB5 mechanical disk brakes

Frameset:

No other material offers the feel of steel. It absorbs road shock and lays out a magic carpet over the roughest road surfaces. Built from lightweight double butted Cro-mo tubing and with space for wider load bearing tyres the Stelvio offers a steady assured ride.

The Stelvio features a moderately sloping top tube; shorter frame tubes save weight and you'll appreciate every saved gram when you're riding fully loaded up the Stelvio's namesake. A steeper seat tube puts you over the cranks for the easiest pedal stroke while a longer rear triangle and a carefully considered front end package tracks straight and true even on the most challenging descents.

As you'd expect from a bike with English brand heritage we've specified a BSA bottom bracket and a slender 27.2mm seat post to complement the Stelvio's traditional styling. The Stelvio is finished off with investment cast dropouts and brazed on full-length mudguard mounts there's also space for front and rear panniers. Created for disk brakes you'll ride safely in the knowledge that no matter how much you've packed on board you'll be able to pull up to a stop quickly whatever the weather conditions.

Groupset: Shimano's 6800 Ultegra (22-speed) groupset hits a real sweetspot in the price Vs performance stakes. It offers 95% of the performance of Dura-Ace, but at a lower price that makes it obtainable for more competitive riders. Ergonomics, drivetrain durability and gear shift fluidity are first class with Ultegra 6800. Faultless gear shifts across the 11-32 cassette, even under the heavy load, comes with the lightest touch of the controls. Shimano are masters of precision gear shifting, taken to a whole new level with Ultegra 6800.

Braking is courtesy of Avid's tried and tested BB5 mechanical disk brackes. There's plenty of power and modulation on tap making the Elan perfect fro riding 365 days of the year, whatever the weather.

Wheelset: Gipiemme are well known for their alloy and carbon fibre race wheels, now they've put their all into creating a practical, value for money 29"/ 700c disc brake wheelset. Built for road and off-road use the Gippemme Roccia is supremely versatile, it'll be equally at home on our touring bikes as it would any of our Gravel Adventure or cyclocross bikes. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is the perfect inexpensive do it all 700c wheelset.
