The perfect lightweight entry into road riding, fast commuting or fitness rides for those who prefer a flat-bar configuration. If you're on a budget or just getting started with road riding, the Rapid flat-bar road bike is the way to go.
Built around a proven alloy frame to keep the weight low, with the addition of a steel fork to soak up road vibration.
With a versatile upright road geometry, this is a comfortable bike that affords the rider good visibility when commuting or riding in the city.
The Rapid flat-bar road bike features a flat handlebar for riders who are familiar with this style of bike; or prefer this setup for a more upright position or easier control at slow speeds in traffic.
Striking a balance between performance, reliability and value-for-money requires careful specification choices. Shimano Tourney shifters and derailleurs are unbeatable at this pricepoint and will provide years of faithful service.
Promax Dual-Pivot Caliper Brakes offer great stopping ability. Dual-pivot means that instead of old-fashioned brake calipers that lever off the central bolt, the brakes lever off two separate pivot points, increasing the braking power, feel and control.
To finish this quality value-priced road bike, the Rapid runs on lightweight double-wall alloy rims with Quando quick-release hubs and Kenda 23c road tyres for a fast-rolling ride.
- Flat handlebar for riders who are more familiar with this style of bike or prefer it for city riding.
- Lightweight alloy road bike frame with steel fork to soak up road vibration.
- 14-speed Shimano Tourney shifters and front/rear derailleurs for unbeatable performance and durability at a value price.
Double wall alloy rims, Quando quick-release hubs and Kenda 23c tyres for a light, fast-rolling wheelset.
- Reliable control with Promax Dual-Pivot caliper brakes.

I'm really sorry to hear this! Punctures are an unfortunate part of riding a bike. Some people can encounter several punctures in a month, whereas others can go months or even years without one! I'm really sorry to hear about your bad luck.
Let us know if we can do anything to help.
