For all long-distance adventurers and overland-commuters: The ACROS Gravel handlebar!

To us, riding a road bike is not merely about chasing after kilometres. We want to leave the beaten path, face the unknown and break out of the daily grind. This very longing for a quick escape from the daily routines is reflected in our ROAD-line.

ACROS MOVEMBER – GROW YOUR MO FOR YOUR BRO

This month is Movember again. “Movember” is an artificial word and is composed out of the French and English word for Mustache and November It refers to a donation marathon, originally from Australia. The idea behind the campaign launched in Adelaide in 2003 is that men are fighting for men's health. They grow themselves a stache for 30 days and thereby attract attention, collecting money for prostate and testicular cancer research. Unfortunately each of us knows a sad story. The “Movember” is a good opportunity to raise your awareness for your and your [...]
