The fundamentals of the 555

The 555 is a gravel-oriented event taking you on an evenly split course of gravel and paved road. Crossing the Serra Geral between Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul states, the course is made of nice gravel tracks and takes you to fabulous areas in which you will enjoy the sight of the endemic araucaria trees. In the space of a weekend, you will explore this area and enjoy its sceneries and the gravel experience it offers.

Reconnaissance of the route was done with a gravel bike equipped with 40 mm tires. This 555 will offer an 50-50% split between asphalt and gravel for a fast and non-technical gravel experience.

For this 555 whose route includes 50% gravel sections, we recommend the following configuration:

  • Gravel bike such as the Origine Graxx 3 GTR or GTO
