Moots Routt 45

Custom build your dream gravel bike with Moots’ hand-crafted finest quality titanium. The ROUTT 45 is a workhorse gravel machine that’s aimed for adventure and versatility from tackling fast paced lunch rides to multi-day bike packing outings on rough roads and bush-tracks. Happy Wheels can help with identifying the right Moots frame & components for your dream bike.


Shortened stays give the ROUTT 45 increased snappiness for climbing and cornering agility, while retaining the stable handling and comfort of the original Routt 45.  Optimized for 700 x 30-45mm tires, with a maximum tire size of 700 x 45mm. Clearance with compact double chain rings, or up to 42 tooth clearance with one by drivetrains.

The ROUTT 45 sports a 3rd water bottle location as stock, so you can go further between watering holes.

The ROUTT 45 is packed with multiple performance-oriented features.  Perfect rear wheel and brake alignment come courtesy of Moots’ proprietary 6/4 titanium 3D-printed flat-mount disc mount.  To provide the greatest range of tyre and wheel combination compatibility, the frame and fork are designed to accommodate up to 45mm tyres with a geometry optimized for 700c wheels.  Standard builds come equipped with Moots full-carbon gravel/cross forks that conveniently feature hidden fender eyelets for foul weather riding and training. The ROUTT 45 is also compatiable with a LAUF gravel fork if would like to add a bit of suspension to your ride.

And of course, the Routt 45 is made of US-made, seamless 3/2.5 titanium and comes in seven sizes, with custom geometry available to ensure a perfect fit for every rider.

MOOTS SELECT BUILDS provide a quicker delivery when choosing one of the curated build kits.  The MOOTS SELECT BUILDS come standard with Moots’ ETCHED finish but can be upgraded to a full array of finish options including Moots’ Signature Series anodized logos and patterns.  Visit Moots’ FINISHES page for the full menu and details.
