Less can sometimes be more. That's the thinking behind the Nuroad EX, which features Shimano's gravel-specific GRX components in weight-paring 1x11 form, for a wide gear range with minimal fuss. WTB's lightweight, tough and grippy Riddler 45mm tyres work with the Shimano GRX hydraulic disc brakes to keep you in full control, all of the time. There's a vibration-filtering, full carbon fork for ride-all-day comfort. And a full complement of rack mounts – front and rear – mean it's easy to equip your Nuroad EX for any adventure from the daily commute to a weeks-long tour.
To create the Nuroad Pro we took inspiration from our race and cyclocross bikes, then threw a little mountain bike DNA into the mix. There's plenty of clearance for big, grippy and comfortable 45mm tyres – or 40mm if you run mudguards at the same time. There's an integrated seat clamp, exceptionally tidy rack, guard and kickstand mounts, and neat internal cable routing to keep gear shifts grit- and mud-free for longer. Thru-axle wheels improve steering accuracy, even on the roughest roads. And the full carbon fork isn't just lightweight – it also helps reduce vibration from the road and features lowrider rack mounts.
