“Anticosti, a large, sparsely populated island located at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, is a land of impenetrable forests, dramatic coastal cliffs and inland canyons, and stunning waterfalls. It is a land of remote and rugged beauty, crisscrossed by logging roads, ATV trails, and singletrack, just waiting to be explored.” It’s no surprise that Panorama Cycles drew inspiration from this island in Eastern Canada, which evolved into a go-anywhere, all-terrain touring bike made of Reynolds 725 steel tubes and sitting on cushy 27.5 x 2.1″ tires.
The Anticosti was designed from the ground up to be capable on a wide range of surfaces, including gravel, off-road, or as a more traditional touring bike. Packing up for bikepacking should be easy with all the various mounts, including rear rack compatibility, Anything Cage mounts on the fork, three bottle cages, and an oversized main triangle for a frame bag.
The Anticosti is offered in a single build option, which as Panorama Cycles explains, is designed to provide “the best balance between reliability, performance, and price.” A SRAM 1×11 Apex drivetrain, WTB Nano 27.5 x 2.1″ tires, mechanical TRP Spyre brakes, and a few other thoughtfully picked components definitely make Panorama’s latest offering an attractive one for the mixed-road adventurer. Panorama spiced things up with a collaboration with Portland-based artist Lizzy Dalton, who is responsible for creating the frame’s custom graphics. The mix of flowing contours and intricate patterns are sure to help inspire your next adventure.
