BLUE Competition Cycles all new gravel bike the HOGBACK exposes a strong carbon-fiber foundation and an aggressive bike designed for rough terrain, fast rollers and long grinders.
HOGBACK now available…
is our latest in a line-up of high-quality carbon bicycles. The HOGBACK Gravel Grinder is designed for the avid gravel rider, gravel racers and all those adventurous at heart who like a fast, comfortable ride in mixed terrain.
HOGBACK takes BLUE to a new level with this gravel adventure bike. It hits all the marks with its construction of BLUE-TEC Composites T-700 high-modulus carbon-fiber, a lower oversized bottom bracket shell for optimum handling and stiffness, taller head-tube for comfortable position and 700c 45mm tire clearance or 650c with 2.1” clearance for the most aggressive rides.
It can be equipped with Shimano or SRAM components ranging from Di2 electronic shifting and more economical mechanical shifting to 2x and 1x drive train configurations to fit your preference. Hydraulic direct-mount rotor disc brakes provide the best control in wet and dry conditions on those technical courses and leave your carbon rims untouched.
High-Modulus Continuous Fiber Frame Technology (CFFT) is a process by which the full-length carbon strands run throughout the bicycle for increased strength while decreasing weight. This allows the HOGBACK to be one of the lightest gravel bikes while being extremely strong and durable for the long haul.
