Named after a sparsely populated island located at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, the Anticosti is Panorama Cycles’ all-terrain drop-bar touring bike. It’s based around a Reynolds 725 Chromoly steel frame, carbon fork, and was originally specced with big 27.5″ wheels and tires for navigating a wide range of surfaces.
The 2023 Panorama Anticosti was just released and includes some promising updates that make it look like a solid option for bikepacking, gravel, and everyday riding. Panorama shortened the seat tube length, slackened the front end, and tweaked the chainstays to offer more tire clearance in the back end. The Anticosti is still equipped with rack, fender, and triple pack mounts, and it features frame graphics by Trevor Browne that celebrate Panorama’s commitment to the environment as a member of 1% For The Planet and being Climate Neutral certified.
As usual, Panorama is offering the Anticosti in one complete build that’s designed to offer “the best balance between reliability, performance, and price.” It comes with a SRAM Rival 1×11 drivetrain, Easton cranks, Hunt 4Season Gravel wheels, and Teravail Rutland 700 x 42mm tires. The frame has clearance for 700 x 50mm / 650B x 2.1″ tires, internal dynamo wiring, a matching carbon fork with anything cage mounts, and is available in three sizes.
The 2023 Panorama Anticosti is available to preorder now with an expected delivery in May. The frameset (frame + fork) costs $1,649 CAD (~$1,230 USD), and the complete build costs $3,599 CAD (~$2,700 USD). Head over to PanoramaCycles.com to learn more.
