Versatility is still a big part of the Elan Vital but now it has been improved for bigger load carrying and rougher terrain.

Unmatched comfort, control and versatility.

For adventurous gravel escapes with the versatility to explore around town

For the Elan Vital 2.0 we have fitted the new Ritchey Comp Corralitos handlebar.

If you build it, they will come! We built the the New Elan Vital 2.0 frame with this handle bar in mind as the perfect fit. Adjusted geometry to perfectly match the short reach and small drop of these bars for improved handling with added comfort and stability.

This super-compact drop bar is designed for any sort of riding from off-road explorations where comfort is a priority for your off road and adventures to your practical needs of urban commuting.

The Comp Corralitos features a 15mm rise, a round top shape, and a wide 24° drop flare. Great for comfort and leverage in any situation. This innovative bar also presents an anatomical bend shape, which creates two angles that provide riders two optimized and more stable hand positions on the bar. The Corralitos also offers the shortest reach and smallest drop possible for an alloy bar. In fact, this bar is a fantastic bar option for bikes that don’t traditionally feature drop bars.

From adventurous gravel escapes, back country touring, bikepacking to more explorative pursuits around town, and everywhere in-between, the Comp Corralitos promises better ride experiences with unmatched comfort, control, and practicality.

The Elan Vital 2.0 is your perfect partner for long distance adventure touring. Multiple mounting points for a rack and full size panniers out back and the Frame and fork will both have triple water bottle mounts for cargo cages letting you fully expand your cargo carrying capacity.
