They say 

The All New Polyvalent is Velo Orange’s “do-it-all” frameset. It is the ideal platform to build a sturdy tourer, practical commuter, comfortable all-day randonneur, or a rugged gravel bike.

They’ll have the same specifications and sizing as the Low Kickers (spec. below), but with a horizontal top tube (with a couple degrees of slope). 

Tire clearance is generous. With fenders: 650b x 48 or 26 x 2.3” (smooth). Forgoing fenders, the Polyvalent can gobble up 650b x 2.1” or 26×2.3 (knobby). 

There are star reinforcements on nearly every braze-on on the frame and fork. The rear brake routing is internal and features super easy installation via a brazed in tube – no more fishing for the housing. The paint is a brilliant Metallic Sage.

The rear end of the bike features dedicated rack and fender mounts.

The fork has an elegant French-style bend that features braze-ons for a multitude of mounting options including: Rando-style front racks, side-mounted cargo cages, and low-rider pannier racks.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Velo Orange frame without proper fender mounts that face the tire to create a perfect fender installation every time.
