Riding your bike to work or school is a great way to save money as well as lead a happier and healthier lifestyle. Our range of Urban bikes are perfect for those looking to start commuting by bike. As mountain-bike-styled hybrid commuters, they’re built with both comfort and versatility in mind. One bike to do it all - get you to work on time and take you on weekend adventures.

There’s a wide range of options to suit all commutes, all terrain and all budgets. Explore the Urban Bike range below to discover which is best suited to your lifestyle.


When choosing the right Urban bike for you, it’s important to consider the following factors:
the length of your commute, the terrain, how often you’ll be riding and what kind of weather you’ll be commuting in.

FRAME

All bikes in our Urban Range feature mountain bike style geometry, characterised by a strong frame and more comfortable, upright riding position to aid visibility in traffic. Frames are made from either Steel or Aluminium Alloy. Steel is the traditional bike frame material, suited to casual riders - it’s strong, reduces road vibrations and is more affordable. Aluminium Alloy is lighter than steel without sacrificing on durability, it’s more expensive and best suited to those riding often.

GEARING

If you’ve got a short commute, simple and flat A to B then 7 speeds is all you’ll need to casually coast through a short, flat commute. For a mid-length commute, with hills then it’s worth investing in a 24 speed gear range. We recommend upgrading to a better groupset and 27 - 30 speed range, if you've got a longer commute with hills and are looking to really push for speed on the weekends.

V BRAKES

The modern upgrade of traditional calliper brakes. It’s a simple set up, and while you’ll need to keep an eye on the brake pad for wear, they’re easy and cost effective to replace. Perfect if you’re only going to be riding during the week!

DISC BRAKES

If you ride regularly in rain, hail or shine it’s worth upgrading to disc brakes. The main difference between mechanical disc and hydraulic disc is the way in which they transfer power from the lever to the brake itself. Mechanical disc brakes use a cable pull system whereas hydraulic disc brakes use fluid. While both forms of disc brake are more reliable than V Brakes, the Hydraulic versions are more efficient than Mechanical system.
