Ares 26"

Fat bikes eat up the terrain you wouldn’t even dream of attempting on another rig. The Ares lets you experience what all the Fat Bike buzz is about – built for riders looking to conquer deep snow, blistering sand, viscous mud or the sketchiest of rock gardens.

  • Colossal 26” x 4” Kenda Juggernaut tyres to dominate previously unrideable terrain
  • Performance 6061 hydro-formed alloy frame will carry any adventurer into the wild and back again
  • Tektro HDC Hydraulic Disc brakes (180mm front, 160mm rear) and Shimano 1 x 10spd, 30T shifting for stability and control in all conditions
  • Available in four sizes so everyone can experience the thrill of all-terrain adventure

Conventional mountain bikes are designed to be ridden with tyres filled to 25-65 psi. The Ares can run 10 psi or lower. This allows more of the tyre to grip and traverse otherwise unrideable ground. If you want to experience new trails, rugged terrain and a riding experience like no other - the Ares Fat Bike will take you there.

 

For online home delivery orders, bikes are shipped in a box 85% assembled and require some final assembly. For more information please see our shipping and returns page. Bikes purchased in-store are fully assembled and ready to ride.

Shipping

A flat rate of $19.99 shipping per bike is currently available to most Australian mainland (including Tasmania). For orders placed only containing parts and accessories, the delivery cost will be $9.99.

Pick up in-store options are always free for all products (for wait times and more information, click here )

For postcodes ineligible for the $19.99 flat rate, Reid Cycles offers subsidised rates to help make shipping more affordable to remote and harder to access areas.

Subsidised Home Delivery

We offer a subsidised flat rate delivery of $19.99 for most of the Australian and Tasmanian mainland. This means that the customer pays $19.99, and we cover the rest of the cost. However, in some regional areas, the cost of delivery can be very high – some upwards of $300. It is for these suburbs that we offer varying subsidised shipping rates based on zones. These zones are determined by your total shipping cost – and of this total cost, we subsidise $80.

E.g., If at checkout, you are in Zone 4, and your shipping comes to $99.99. This means your actual cost of shipping was $179.99.

For each zone, there is a base rate of shipping. However, for every additional bike ordered, 50% of this base rate is added. In this case, it is likely we are subsidising more than the $80 and are only asking for part of the cost covered for the additional freight.

E.g., If you are in Zone 1 of the subsidised shipping areas and order one bike, your base shipping rate is $49.99. If you order two bikes in the same order, your shipping will total $74.99. If you order a third bike, it will total $99.99.

Please note: There are a small number of suburbs that we don't currently deliver to. This is because our service provider doesn't service these areas. For further information, please contact support@reidcycles.com.au.

We do not ship outside of Australia. If you live overseas and would like to buy a Reid bike, please visit www.reidbikes.com to view a list of retailers.

Assembly:

Remember that bikes are shipped boxed, and 85% are assembled. The final assembly required includes the installation of the handlebars, front wheel, pedals, and saddle, adjusting the brakes, and tuning the gears. We recommend that the assembly is done by a qualified bike mechanic or another suitably qualified person. Damage caused by an incorrect assembly (such as installing the pedals the wrong way around) is not covered by your warranty.

Please see our 'How to guides ' for assembly instructions if you do choose to assemble a bike yourself.

Delivery method:

It's always best to send to an address that always has someone in attendance. You may also want to give our courier an 'authority to leave' instruction. Only give us an 'authority to leave' if you're confident that the delivery will be safe. Otherwise, the courier can leave a 'sorry we missed you' card, allowing you to arrange re-delivery.

Warranty:

  • A lifetime Warranty on every Reid frame we sell (excluding our carbon fibre range)
  • A lifetime Warranty on all rigid forks (excluding our carbon fibre range)
  • A 2-year Warranty on all Carbon Fibre products, suspension forks, Shimano components, and Mavic wheelsets
  • A 2-year Warranty on all other non-consumable components
  • For our eScooters, we offer a 1-year warranty on any manufacturing issues/faults.
