The RT-58 V2 Alloy has been designed to accommodate the needs of the broadest possible range of cyclists. A hand welded, 6061-T6 heat treated alloy frame paired with a carbon bladed fork delivers an irresistible combination of direct power transfer and mile-eating comfort.
A shorter top tube provides a more comfortable riding position with a better weight distribution between saddle and bars than you'd achieve on a race orientated frame. The more upright riding position also ensures you have a better field of view, keeping you safe on busy roads and allowing you to soak up all the beauty the countryside has to offer. With clearance for wider, more comfortable tyres we've thought of everything to make your next ride go as smoothly as possible.View Range

All frame size recommendations are approximate. Please note the sloping top tube means these frames measure 2cm shorter than a the previous RT-58 v1 version. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.
