It features smooth welds on its lightweight aluminium frame which are usually only found on high-end expensive bicycles. The FM1 debuts the company’s Microshift Acolyte drivetrain which, they claim, is simple and robust and is a one-by system with a wide range of gears. The Acolyte drivetrain uses a Spring-lock(clutch) mechanism which again is traditionally only seen on high-end bicycles. 

Keeping Women riders in mind, the women-centric version Giro FM1W has a specially designed frame altogether with women-specific frame geometry and a wider saddle and a higher density saddle.

We are extremely excited to launch Avanti Bikes – our third cycling brand in India from the SCOTT group. Avanti represents a unique opportunity because it is a product designed specifically for the southern hemisphere countries. After being in New Zealand & Australia, we look forward to Avanti Being in India.
