Mountain bikes and road-going bikes typically have wildly differing geometry. Why? We’ve never found a good answer to that question. Our R7 series commuter bikes incorporate many of the design principles that distinguish our award winning mountain bikes, such as a long wheelbase and relaxed head angle for high speed stability, and a shorter stem for excellent low speed maneuverability. It works in the woods and it works on the city’s pot-holed streets too.

Hydraulic disc brakes offer low-maintenance and high performance, puncture-resistant tyres ensure you get to work on time, and internal cable routing maximises these bikes’ clean, uncluttered appearance.
