Wessex Hiraeth Adventure Bike, Custom Specification Build
Hiraeth, the welsh word pronounced with a rolled 'r', describes the deeply felt connection with some type of homeland such as the woods or the hills. Hiraethog Trail is a MTB route through Wales that is actually much better suited to a Gravel bike and so that spawned the name.
With the Wessex Bikes Hiraeth, its about where it can take you and how it makes you feel when you're there. Fast geometry along with all-road clearances allow you to run up to 40mm gravel tyres, yet throw on a set of carbon wheels and keep with the fastest club rides.
The Hiraeth is a Semi-Bespoke All-Road bike, Handmade by an award winning UK frame builder we have worked with to design a unique specification, bespoke touches, custom parts and exceptional craftsmanship. This combines in a bike that rides beautifully across a multitude of surfaces and disciplines from fast road rides, adventurous bike-packing and gravel riding.
