All-road bike, road bike on steroids, racing gravel bike? It took us a moment to decide how to name our new model. "Road Plus" won - a name that, in our opinion, perfectly describes our new frame. It will perform well both on fast road races and long bikepacking adventures, where besides paved roads, you may encounter cobblestones or gravel. The Loca Carbon Road Plus will handle such surfaces without any problems!
Our road plus road bike is a combination of road and gravel features. It differs from a typical road bicycle primarily with larger tires, usually +32 mm. This offers greater comfort when riding on rough terrain, better grip on loose surfaces, and greater puncture resistance compared to a traditional road bike, while maintaining the speed and agility characteristic of this category.
Each of our road plus road bicycles is painted and assembled to order. This means that you decide on your machine. You can participate in the building process with us and design the bike of your dreams!
The heart of our new model is lightweight but durable frames made of full Toray carbon fibers and fully carbon forks. They undergo exhaustive fatigue tests at the factory, ensuring very high frame durability. High stiffness will allow you to ride even faster on the road, and thanks to its robust construction, the bike will perform just as well off-road. Both the frame and fork are compatible with flat mount brake caliper standard. Thanks to advanced technology, the frame weight starts at 970 g, and the whole bike can weigh as little as 7.2 kg!
Tapered fork steerer guarantees precise handling and high bike stability, while the carbon frame and fork provide excellent shock absorption capability. This means that even on narrow road tires and high pressure, vibrations transmitted to the rider on rough terrain are significantly reduced.
Our Road Plus bike is not just gravel in disguise. Compared to our carbon gravel bike, the chain stays are 20 mm shorter, the wheelbase is significantly smaller, and the frame angles are much more aggressive. Combined with a stack/reach ratio that allows for a very comfortable position, this gives us a bike with which you can quickly and comfortably cover really long distances.
In this model, we have provided space for two cages in the main frame triangle - pure minimalism! The frame can easily accommodate typical bikepacking bags, allowing you to pack for longer trips.
Full internal cable routing, in addition to looking great, also makes it easier to mount bikepacking bags. The cables are visible only over a very short section under the stem! It is also possible to install a carbon cockpit, which allows you to completely hide the cables and achieve even lower weight.
In our road bikes, you will find only proven components - the basic mechanical groups we offer are Shimano 105 2x11 and Shimano Ultegra 2x11. Both, of course, come with hydraulic brakes!
Do you need a drivetrain that works with surgical precision? We have Shimano 105 Di2 electronic groups and SRAM Rival AXS available. They provide excellent shifting performance in all conditions. SRAM Rival AXS is also wireless!
Our carbon Road Plus road bikes allow for tire clearance up to 35 mm. They will easily handle unpaved roads, providing great agility and excellent acceleration during sprints thanks to their very compact geometry.
One of the most important elements of a bicycle is undoubtedly the wheels. In this category, we also offer many options! Our base model Road Lite, despite appearing in the basic configuration, has been designed to meet all the expectations of someone spending long days in the saddle. Proven DT Swiss 350 hubs and DT Swiss R500 rims represent quality on their own, and all of this is assembled in Lower Silesia by Wojczal Bikes.
For those expecting maximum efficiency from their bike, we have a proposal for three sets of carbon wheels from Wojczal Bikes and the Warsaw-based manufacturer Dandy Horse.
Of course, in addition to the technical configuration, we can also provide custom painting. Changing the color and various simpler painting designs (such as single color + lettering) are usually included in the bike's price.
Each carbon frame and fork from Loca Bikes comes with a 5-year warranty.
