So here it is :
One of our most anticipated new bikes for the coming season is definitely the new R355. With it’s Full Carbon Frame and Fork and ability to be both Road ( 700 x 28 to 40c tyres ) and Dirt ( 27.5 x 2.1 or 29 x 2.1 ) bike, it heralds a new style of bicycle for a new style of rider!
With a host of “trickle-down” technology borrowed from the latest mountain bikes on the market, the R355 features a Sram 1x 11 Drivetrain, Sram Hydraulic Disc Brakes, Stan’s ZTR Grail Tubeless Ready Wheels and both Front and Rear Through-Axles on the Frame / Fork.
It’s Light. ( sub 9kg with pedals and all your extras )
It’s Versatile. ( can take 3 different wheel sizes )
And it arrives as early as August 2017. ( MSRP : R 52,500 incl VAT )
