With its striking blue finish and meticulous attention to detail, the 257 ONE is more than just a means of transportation; it's a statement of your commitment to style, velocity, and safety.

Premium Aluminium Frame for Lightweight Versatility: The heart of the 257 AL One is its Premium Aluminium frame, smoothly welded and finished with a durable powder coat. This lightweight yet robust foundation offers the ideal balance of versatility and strength, ensuring your bike is as resilient as it is graceful.

The 1x8 gear setup ensures you have the range you need for every urban adventure, from steep inclines to swift flats, all with the smooth, quiet operation that only a belt drive can provide.

Integrated Lights and Premium Features for Enhanced Safety: Ride with confidence day or night, thanks to the integrated StVZO certified lights in the Lightskin handlebar and seatpost. The premium fenders keep you clean and dry, while the cargo and fender mounts add practicality to your rides. With the URS Carbon fork featuring Tuned Compliance Concept Gravel and internal brake & hub dynamo cable routing, every journey is not just comfortable but a true pleasure.
