ABOUT THE APOLLO

IT'S AS SIMPLE AS:

RIDE, RINSE, & REPEAT


The fun of gravel riding has become synonymous with the caked-on dirt it leaves behind. With the unique combination of an internally geared Alfine 11 hub and Gates Carbon Drive, the Apollo attacks gravel paths and city grit, ready for more after a quick rinse.

  • 01. HUB

    Get rid of the hassle of grease, grime, and tune ups of traditional derailleurs without sacrificing performance. The Alfine 11 system offers a 409% gear range, enough to grind in the saddle for climbs or to shoot down paths. With no gear overlap, the Alfine 11 system efficiently delivers power with the simplicity of an internally geared hub.

  • 02. LEVERS

    Integrated shifting sits on the right hand brake lever. Upshift for more speed with a press by your index finger, and drop gears to climb with a press on a lower lever. The ultimate low maintenance setup.

  • 03. BELT

    The signature feature to all Priority Bicycles – the rust and grease free Carbon Drive belt. Originally designed for use in manufacturing and automotive, the carbon fiber reinforced belt drive has been refined for bicycle-specific application. The Carbon Drive manages torque better than a chain, won’t break and leave you stranded, or lock up mid ride. Without grease, it won’t stain your hands or clothing- just give it a post ride rinse and you’re ready for your next ride.

  • 04. BRAKES

    Light, consistent modulation, dirt-friendly clearance, and easy adjustment. The TRP Spyres deliver confident braking in all conditions. The dual piston system features a sleek profile that aligns with the frame for a streamlined look. The levers deliver reactive control rounding tight turns on loose dirt and feathering in and out of traffic, and if you need adjustment on the go, just give the barrel adjuster a quick twist.

  • 05. TIRES/SADDLE

    It’s simple, the 700c X 40mm WTB Byway tires are fast when you want it, grippy when you want it. Perfect for cranking down a fire trail, digging into a turn, or rallying over pitted city streets. The Apollo ships tubeless ready on i23 TCS rims, should you want to convert over. The Apollo frame and fork is 650b compatible. The brand-matching saddle is the WTB Pure. With a 150mm width, the Pure sits flat and solid, wide enough for long ride comfort, but streamlined for efficiency.

  • 06. BARS

    440mm drop bars with a 12-degree flare and 90mm reach. Stretch out for speed, drop down for efficiency, or get a little wider for leverage.

DEMAND INSPIRED DESIGN


The name Apollo began with the "11" hidden in the name - a nod to the 11 speed Alfine system. As we worked on testing and prototypes, we also learned more about the Apollo 11 launch and lunar landing. it was a human achievement driven by innovation, R&D,and an intense desire to press onward. Each step was challenging, but the passion outweighed the pressure of the unknown.

The marketplace has asked for a drop bar internally geared bicycle for years. it's been the talk of independent builders and bicycle enthusiasts. We look that as a challenge of our own to create a bicycle that could attack the gravel and rally on roads, all in a low maintenance package that needed no more than a hose off to get back on the road.

Throughout the process, what started as a project name, became a calling to create and it shows up in the design.

FAQS


You have questions. We have answers.


The demand for low maintenance bicycles has extended far beyond recreational riding. We wanted to take our low maintenance promise and apply it to performance, letting our riders have more fun in all road environments. The Apollo adds speed and durability in the popular gravel format. Plus, when you are done, just hose off your bike and ride again.


The gravel format is increasinly popular. It has a forgiving geometry that offers a much larger flexibility than you'd see in a traditional road bike or cross bike. You can take an Apollo on trails with confidence as well as a ride it as an aggressive commuter balancing speed and comfort.


We designed the Apollo frame and fork to have acommodate both format tires.
