Velo Orange Pass Hunter Frameset 53cm

$1,500.00

The Pass Hunter Disc is our “all-road” frame. It’s designed for spirited riding on pavement, gravel, or dirt roads. It’s like a randonneur, but with disc brakes and large tires.

The Pass Hunter has mid-trail geometry and shorter chainstays than our other frames for stable, yet sporty, handling. In addition to all road adventures, randonneuring and pass hunting, it makes would make a nice sportif, a fast credit card tourer, or even an all-weather commuter.
