The State Bicycle Co. 4130 All-Road took the gravel scene by storm a few years ago with a promising-looking steel frame, tons of mounting options, and a sub-$1,000 price point. I spent some time testing one last year and can confirm that it’s a wonderful step in the right direction when it comes to affordable and versatile bikes for everyday life. There’s no question that it’s a heavy bike, though, and today’s release of the State Bicycle Co. Carbon All-Road seeks to address that common critique.
The State Bicycle Co. Carbon All-Road shares many similarities with its steel sibling. It’s built up around a T800 carbon fiber frame and fork, 650b and 700c wheelset options with 700 x 45mm or 650 x 55mm tire clearances, and complete builds starting at $2,000. There are heaps of mounting points, including triple pack fork mounts, bosses on the top tube and under the downtube, and rear rack mounts, making it easy to load up for a night out. A quick look at the geometry chart doesn’t show anything too surprising or dissimilar from the 4130 version. The size 57 has a 72.5° head tube angle, 73.5° seat tube angle, 435mm chainstays across the entire size range, as well a 70mm bottom bracket drop.
It’s no surprise to see a selection of State-branded components on the complete build option, including the same 11-speed Sensah drivetrain found on the 4130 All-Road we reviewed. It comes with State-branded cable actuated hydraulic brakes, your choice of 650b or 700c wheels (or both for $349), and lots of other upgrade options, including a SRAM APEX XPLR AXS drivetrain for an additional $999. The complete build weighs in between 21 and 22-pounds, depending on the frame and wheel size chosen.
The State Bicycle Co. Carbon All-Road is available today for $2,349 USD in two color options from StateBicycle.com. Complete builds are estimated to ship by the end of July and framesets are also available for $1,299.
