Versatility Meets Performance
The Waheela C is a carbon-framed drop bar bike with an adjustable geometry, unrivaled ride quality, and enormous tire clearance for 700c x 54mm, 650b x 54mm, or 29" x 2.1" tires. It has extra mounting points for bottles and racks, easily accessible internal cable routing options, compatibility for 1x or 2x electronic or mechanical drivetrains, and the ability to run a dropper post. No matter the road ahead (or under tire), the Waheela C is ready.
GIANT TIRE CLEARANCE
Gravel comes in all shapes and sizes, from the packed limestone of Southeast Minnesota to the chunky roads of the Flint Hills of Kansas. The Waheela C is equipped with tire clearance to handle the terrrain of your next race. Where most gravel bikes can fit 650b x 50mm but only 40mm with bigger wheels, the Waheela C keeps on rolling, with space for 700c x 54mm tires. It'll run 700c x 35mm when the roads are tacky and tidy, 700c x 42mm when there's a bit more uncertainty, 700c x 54mm when the gravel road turns to ATV trails, and anything in between. The Waheela C can also fit 29" x 2.1", 27.5" x 2.1", or 650b x 54mm if 700c isn't really your thing. In short, the Waheela C is ready for the road ahead.
Like all Otso bikes, the Waheela C sports our patented Tuning Chip rear dropout system, which allows you to change the length of your wheelbase and height of your bottom bracket. Put the Tuning Chip in the back position to get the stability and comfort of a longer wheelbase for a full day of riding gravel. Switch to the front position to get the agile handling and responsiveness required by your next CX race. And the middle position? That's the best of both worlds. The adjustable geometry of the Waheela C allows you to ride any road or any trail without needing to switch bikes.
UNRIVALED RIDE QUALITY
Our proprietary Waheela geometry was developed by our engineers for stability, confidence, and comfort on rough terrain. Where many gravel bikes put extra weight on the front wheel, the Waheela C centers the rider over both wheels. This makes for a more stable ride while allowing the compliant rear triangle to come into play and absorb the bumps of a gravel road. Meanwhile, the lightweight EPS molded carbon frame adds responsiveness and readiness for a sprint up that next hill. After a long day on the saddle, you'll find yourself adding a healthy amount of miles to tomorrow's ride.
