It’s a healthy activity cycling. An efficient and accessible way to get around, it offers a unique freedom that other means of transport just can’t match. At Ridgeback we continue to focus on all things cycling, offering and wide and varied range of bikes. Whether it’s an early morning solo commute to work, or a casual weekend ride with family and friends, Ridgeback has it covered.
2016 is a year of evolution for Ridgeback. We have made a few subtle changes to some existing models to improve them further, but also added a few new models to sit at key price points.
The biggest news for this year is the addition of our debut E-Bike series, Electron. Comprising of two models based around the same frame design, Electron utilises Shimano’s state of the art STePS system. Combining a short charge time and a long battery life, STePS is a highly reliable system and a perfect match for Ridgeback. Offering smooth pedal assistance up to a speed of 25km/h, Electron is perfect for a wide range of cycling and an even wider range of users. This really is the future of cycling.
Dual Track, our off-road series, has also seen a few changes for the new season. The brighter colour ways are and obvious change, but there is also a new frame platform for MX3 and MX4. Keeping on trend, these two models now feature a 27.5” wheel on sizes 17” and upward, whilst keeping a 26” wheel on the smaller sizes and making it an easy transition for younger riders moving up from a kid’s bike.
The lightweight children’s Dimension series was a big hit for 2015. It sees new options added in 16” and 26” wheel, but also two runner bikes in 12” and 14” wheel. Dimension is perfect for younger cyclists that ride more frequently.
Lastly, Rapide returns for its second year. Expanding upon a great debut range, we’ve introduced two new models in the shape of the RL Disc and RC Disc. Based around the standard rim brake versions, these new models offer improved braking in adverse weather conditions, bigger tyre clearance and also mudguard compatibility.
Whatever your riding style, we’re sure you’ll find a Ridgeback or Rapide that is right for you. Once you’ve found the bike that matches your needs, find your nearest stockist at ridgeback.co.uk then go along and test it for yourself…..more
