DescriptionSpecificationsGeometrySize GuideShipping & Warranty Assembly

The perfect lightweight entry into road riding, fast commuting or fitness rides. If you're on a budget or just getting started with road riding, the Rapid 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 features drop bars for that classic road bike style and the ability for you to move your hands to either optimise for comfort or performance.

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.

Key Features: 

  • 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.

    Would not reccomend - will cost more in the long run

    Have had this bike for 5 months, crankset has worn out from regular use. Have tried to see if I can get a replacement crankset under warranty but the team will not help you out with this.

    Was originally told that parts installed by the user are not covered under warranty, when I replied that the cranks come pre-installed the teams reponse was to avoid the subject of them at fault.

    Take the risk and buy one of these bikes but just know that you will be replacing parts in no time at your own cost.
