If you are ready to get back on a bike or try road riding for the first time, the Rapide RL2 Bike is the perfect starting point at an amazing price. Featuring a lightweight, 6061 aluminium frame and carbon fibre fork, to reduce road vibrations, the RL2 is stiff enough to accelerate quickly, but comfortable enough for all day riding. The Shimano Sora transmission offers 18 smooth shifting gears to help you deal easily with any hill and get away from traffic on the morning commute. When you need to haul on the anchors, Tektro caliper brakes make a great job of controlling speed, while being easy to maintain and keeping the weight down. Moving along quickly is a real theme of the Rapide RL2 and Continental Ultrasport II tyres not only roll fast, but their 25C carcass smooths out the worst of the bumps and reduces the chance of pinch punctures. Should you want to take the RL2 little further, rear rack mounts allow for some light touring and all-year-round potential is enhanced by a full set of mudguard eyelets - front and back. For those wanting a quick, affordable commuter, looking to get into road riding or needing a bike for 'that charity challenge ride you agreed to last month' the Rapide RL2 is the answer to your prayers.
