Foundry’s Valmont is a barrier-busting, sand-shredding, off-camber-mastering cyclocross machine. The high-modulus, 40-ton carbon frame can't make a 60-minute lung-burner any shorter, but the stiff front and rear thru-axles will increase your high-speed handling, and the svelte seatstays keep the ride compliant so you can go harder longer. The tapered Whisky No. 9 carbon fork handles immaculately and is set up for post mount disc brakes. The chainstays also accept 140mm post mounts. If you build it up with an electronic gruppo, frame ports on the down tube, seat tube, and chainstay allow for full internal routing to keep a clean aesthetic and protect the wires and cables from the inevitable mud and grime.
