The Search XR C SE is an adventure-seeker that blurs the lines between mountain and road, pushing the limits of what you’d expect from a drop-bar bike.
The high-modulus carbon frame and fork offer agile stability, efficient pedaling, and comfortable vertical compliance. With generous tire clearance (45mm/42mm with fenders); rack, fender, and bottle mounts; and a comfortably quick rider compartment, the Search XR C SE allows you to explore singletrack trails, tackle a gravel loop, or head out for an extended bikepacking excursion.
With tubeless-ready Reynolds ATR X Carbon wheels, wide-range SRAM Force eTap 12-speed group and remote-operated 50mm X-Fusion dropper post, the Search XR C SE is ready to take on whatever adventure you’re up for. Its internally routed cables and sealed Das Boot seat collar keep critical mechanical systems away from the elements on those especially adventurous sojourns.
- High-Modulus carbon frame and fork
- Reynolds ATR X wheelset, carbon, tubeless ready

Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are the highlights of today’s electronic shifting systems:
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servomotors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with precisely and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you’ll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
