Our favourite steel gravel bike is back with a new look. In a tribute to the mighty four-wheel drives that cut the first vehicle tracks through the Australian outback, Kevin of Steel is now available in this Camel Cruiser colourway. Complete with pin-striping and a tribute badge decal you'll be ready for adventure on our most versatile steel gravel machine. With its carefully selected tube set, the Kevin of Steel has its very own special ride quality.

Many of the Curve team have traversed New Zealand, Switzerland, Swaziland, Cuba, Croatia, and more on this magnificent bicycle.

  • Italian Steel

    The main frame triangle is comprised of Columbus Zona Italian-made double-butted tubing. Zona allows for the ideal compromise between weight, strength and life of the frame.

  • Two Bikes In One

    The Ride 400 fork has clearance for wheel options based on your riding style. For example, Kevin can run either 700c wheels with 32–45 mm tyres, best suited for commuting, gravel, and cyclocross, or if you’re looking to tackle some rougher terrain with more traction, use 650b (27.5”) wheels fitted with 1.8–2.2” tyres. Curve has the above wheel options in both carbon and aluminum available.

  • No Weird Flex

    The custom 4130 steel yoke design allows Kevin to run some super wide gravel tyres in two wheel sizes, and also stiffens the BB area to avoid frame flex under load.

  • Ready for Adventure

    Our Ride 400 fork, originally titled GXR fork, was built to complement the Kevin of Steel and titanium GXR frameset. Featuring 3 x 12 mm M5 mounting points on each blade, the Ride 400 fork can accommodate anything from extra water bottles, our Rocket Pooches, or any other micro pannier or fork-specific bag.
