MOMSEN R355 ONE

IF YOU’RE NOT TOO KEEN ON TECH­NI­CAL MOUN­TAIN BIK­ING, BUT YOU’D LOVE TO WATCH THE SUN RISE ON A DIRT ROAD IN THE KA­ROO, GET A GRAVEL BIKE. THERE ARE HUGE AD­VANCES BE­ING MADE IN THIS CAT­E­GORY–AND THE BIKES ARE JUST PLAIN COOL.

IN 2017, VIC­TOR MOMSEN IN­TRO­DUCED TWO GRAVEL BIKES INTO HIS STABLE: the al­loy ‘cheapie’ R300, with me­chan­i­cal disc brakes, and the top-of-the-range R355 car­bon ver­sion, with a top-line spec and hy­draulic brakes.

For 2019, Momsen has ex­panded the range to four mod­els to fill in the price gaps, start­ing with the two al­loy ver­sions – the R300 and R500 – and mov­ing up to the two car­bon op­tions: the R355 ONE and the R355 TWO.

Momsen’s a mas­ter at spec­c­ing a great-look­ing bike, and our fea­tured R355 ONE rep­re­sents a su­perb mid-range buy with much­needed 2x11 gear­ing. The ex­tra gear­ing ex­pands the range of use and of­fers great value in a mar­ket that’s grow­ing rapidly in South Africa.

Be­fore 2019, Momsen only had 1x of­fer­ings; but in a coun­try with such var­ied ter­rain, the 2x con­fig­u­ra­tion is a wel­come bonus for the true gravel en­thu­si­ast.
