On forest trails, gravel roads, or urban streets, an Otso bike will inspire you to achieve your best in whatever way you ride. Take the Warakin. Like many other gravel bikes, it will fit either a 700c, 650b, or 27.5″ tire with room to spare. However, thanks to Otso’s tuning chip, the Warakin fits up to a 700 x 50c tire, 650 x 53b, or 27.5 x 2.1″ tires. The tuning chip means you can have short 420mm chainstays for quicker acceleration, or 440mm chainstays for additional tire clearance and greater road stability. Add in the stainless steel frame, and you have a bike truly built to last.
The Waheela S takes the gravel bike in a slightly different direction. It’s biggest feature is the Waheela S is suspension-corrected for use with the Fox AX gravel suspension fork. The enabling piece is a special lower headset cup that has a 20mm spacer integrated into the cup. It’s all one piece, and it installs in the head tube just like a normal headset cup. In short, take off the headset cup to run a suspension fork, or install the cup to run a standard carbon fiber fork.
Made from Reynolds 520 steel, the Waheela S employs the same tuning chip system found in other Otso bikes. This allows it to comfortably run tires from 700c x 28mm to massive 700c x 53mm, 29 x 2.1″, or 650b x 53mm for plenty of options. With this level of options, the Otso Waheela S was designed from the ground up to be the most versatile gravel bike available.
