MA-AFO is DARE’s newest ultra-lightweight competitive road bike that will reign over mountains and races!
Born from the pursuit of extreme climbing, MA-AFO possesses all the details a cyclist could hope for!
We are dedicated to building the highest performance and best quality into each DARE bike.
A Revolutionary Material: Graphene
We’ve used cutting edge materials in innovative technology- Graphene and impact-resistant epoxy resin with prepreg carbon fiber, constructing an even lighter and stiffer frame with increased impact resistance. Compared to previous MR1sDB, the new MA-AFO’s stiffness increases by 15%, yet its weight is 15% lighter!
The Most Compatible Design For Various Handlebar Systems
DARE designed a brand new "ACE Handlebar and Stem System" for MA-AFO, featuring internal cable routing. The new Ace stem is available along with lightweight Vetox Ace and Ergo Ace handlebars for all your aerodynamic or light-weight needs. Each component utilizes high-stiffness, M46 carbon fiber, aiding stable power output on climbs or during bursts of speed.
Every rider has different requirements for their handlebar system. Some value a highly portable, easy-to-clean external routing system, some love the aesthetic of an integrated handlebar and stem, and others choose internal routing systems for an impressive aerodynamic performance.
MA takes all these considerations into account, its thoughtful design features a clean and modular spacer and cable cover that works with any handlebar system a rider may use.
More Linear, More Fitted, and Easier to Climb With
Based on feedback from the previous MR1sDB and from professional teams, the new MA is adjusted for more linear sizing, and maintain the same reach with a lower stack for better ergonomics. With this configuration, more power output and stability is possible while climbing, as well as improved aero performance when returning to a level road.
