Compared to the steel Inversion gravel road bike launched in April, the new Breezer Radar Pro Radar is more utilitarian, all around bike. It fits bigger tires, up to 29×2.1, and it gets a thirst slaking five water bottle mounts.

The frame is butted steel, it just doesn’t get the additional shaping of the Inversion, and gets a straight steerer instead of tapered. Other key differences include QR instead of thru axles, and a chromoly fork rather than carbon.

All cables are run externally, and presumably you’ll want to make sure the shop doesn’t run your front brake cable inside the fork legs as shown here.

Where the Inversion used a post mount rear/flat mount front brake caliper combo, this one uses IS mounts with adapters.

  1. Seems like a gravel bike from 3 years ago. Harder to upgrade with nice parts in the future with the rest of the industry moving away from QR and and straight headtubes. My gravel bike is the same, and I would have liked more options when upgrading to a carbon 1 1/8 fork, for example. Why buy a new bike that’s already somewhat antiquated? Especially when more updated spec bikes are like $250 more

  2. Joe Breeze and Ritchey (on the Ascent) may have their reasons for staying away from thru axles on these models. Outside of mountain bike-oriented shops in US and western Europe they won’t be that common. These are two bikes that might be popular with bike packers and world tourists, looks to me.

  3. Seems like another Vaya clone…

    And most steel frames don’t need replaceable hangers since you can bend them back several times before you finally nuke the frame, and then you can just weld a new drive side drop out on.
