When its time for your next bike, the temptation to move to carbon is considerable and the Rapide RC1 just made the moving even more tempting still. A full 24/30 T carbon frame is designed to still and responsive where you need it, but compliant where it matters. The carbon bladed fork continues the theme by deflecting torsional forces while absorbing the worst of the road vibrations. Picking up speed is easy thanks to the fast rolling Continental UltraSport II tyres, in 25c guise to minimise the chance of pinch punctures on your Rapide RC1 bike. A Tiagra 10 speed drivetrain offers every gear you need, whether you are winding up hill, sprinting for the line, or clocking out the big miles at a steady cadence. When you need to slow things down, Shimano also provide the RC1 with Tiagra caliper brakes to do the job, while integrated STi shifting means you never have to take your hands off the bars. Should you wish to use your Rapide RC1 as a winter training bike, or if it fulfils year round commuting duties, the full mud guard mounts mean that you can keep yourself dry when the roads are not. A rear rack mount also adds to commuting appeal. FSA finishing kit gives the RC1's cockpit a touch of class, while the Rapide/Shimano wheels keep things spinning, fuss free. All told, the Rapide RC1 is one hell of a carbon road race bike and easily outshines others in its class - make sure you feel the shine too.
