HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES

These brakes give you confidence that you’ll stop when you need to and with a hydraulic system you will have greater control and and have better feedback through your levers, hydraulic systems aren’t prone to cable stretch and self adjust as your brake pads wear down – meaning you can focus on the riding!
This bike is sporty yet comfortable, it has a more upright seating position thanks to additional height at the front of the bike in the at the headset. This bike is accessible and ready to ride without a bunch of riding experience!
TYRE CLEARANCE 37MM

When using fenders you’ll be restricted to 32mm of tyre width!
