Rapid Flatbar Road Bike

If you're getting into commuting, road riding, fitness training or just looking for a reliable, fun way to get around, you should take a very close look at the Rapid Road Bike.

The Perfect Entry Level Flat Bar Road Bike For Commuting & Road Riding

 

The Rapid isn't your normal price point road bike. Bikes at this price point often feature an odd assortment of cheap, no-name components, but not the Rapid. We carefully chose a package of bike parts from the biggest bike brand names that give the best reliability and performance, while still keeping the price ultra affordable. 

The Rapid road bike features a alloy frame that is light and stiff, while the steel fork gives vertical compliance for improved comfort, feel and durability. The frame geometry and shape of the road bike puts you in a commanding, upright position for visibility of the road ahead and the traffic around you.

Promax Dual-Pivot Caliper Brakes offer great stopping ability. Dual-pivot means that instead of old-fashioned brake callipers that lever off the central bolt, the brakes lever off two separate pivot points, increasing the braking power, feel and control.

The features road bike wheels are double-walled aluminium alloy, so they're light and strong. We've chosen Kenda road race tyres in a standard 23c size. This means that they're durable and fast-rolling, with plenty of grip and control. 

The Reid Cycles Rapid is definitely the best value road bike in Australia under $300.

Our range of quality road bikes also come with the industry leading Reid Lifetime frame warranty, 2 years warranty on parts and 12 months of free servicing to guarantee you get a great deal.
