Versatile riders looking for a bike that can handle their go-everywhere lifestyle need a ride that's more than just a one-hit wonder. As fast as a road bicycle yet versatile enough to be an adventure touring bike, the 700c Schwinn vantage Rx2 is a durable road bike capable of wearing many different cycling hats. The key is the Schwinn smooth ride technology (s.R.T.) aluminum endurance frame. Srt inserts an elastomer isolation unit with 15 millimeters of travel between the seat stays and the seat tube for a little extra give, which works to dampen vibrations and absorb bumps without added bike weight. You won't lose any lateral stiffness, so srt lets you ride harder and longer while maintaining an incredibly smooth ride. With a full 18-speed Shimano Sora drivetrain, Sora STI Shifters and an SR sun tour SP2 compact crank, the Rx2 has the gearing to replace a road bike, hybrid and commuter all in one. The carbon fork, SRAM Rival hydraulic disc brakes, and wide Continental Sport contact II safety breaker flat protection tires make this ride ready for gravel trails. Add in rack and fender mounts and clearance up to a 44c tire, and now you have a touring bike for your next camping trip. Take the road less traveled on the versatile, lightweight and smooth Schwinn Rx2. Enjoy the freedom of riding a Schwinn. Note: all product weights do not include pedals and are based on a medium frame size, but the bike does come with pedals.
