Once the road bug bikes, you need to make the move to carbon and the Rapide RC2 bike is one of the sharpest, best equipped options out there. With a full carbon 24/30 Toray frame providing an excellent balance of torsional stiffness and lateral compliance that only carbon fibre can offer, the RC2's also offers a carbon bladed fork to take the edge of the roughest road sections. When you put the power down, you are engaging Shimano's excellent 105 drivetrain, which comes as almost a complete groupset (Rapide have given the RC2 a KMC chain for greater reliability) and shifts through each of its 22 gears with buttery smoothness. Stopping duties are also taken care of via 105 brakes, for reliable power and lower weight than some brand's 'no name' brakes. A highlight of the Rapide RC2 are the Fulcrum Racing sport wheels; part of the Campagnolo stable, these are race proven, super light hoops with instant pick up and fantastic reliability in all sorts of conditions. Shod to these brilliant wheels, the RC2 boasts Continental Ultrasport II tyres, rubber so good that you actually find them on the training bikes of Tour de France professionals. The 25c width also ensures that the ride is comfortable and reduces pinch punctures. Finishing kit on the Rapide RC2 is a sharp as the rest of the bike, with high a end FSA Gossamer bar, stem and seat post all gracing the cockpit. For racing credentials and a supremely affordable entry into the world of carbon fibre road bikes, the Rapide RC2 bike ticks every possible box.
