Full Description

Description

Developed from our acclaimed London Road model, the SL has improvements to the butting and shaping of frame tubes which have helped to trim weight. It's still the No1 commuter bike choice for any cyclist, and it's more versatile and comfortable to ride than ever.

Luggage carrying rear rack mounts and space for full-length mudguards work alongside improved tyre clearance, making even more space for larger, more comfortable tyres. A carbon bladed fork to help soak up the road vibration and a 27.2mm seat post and thinner seat stays help soak up the bumps at the back as well. 

Groupset: SRAM Apex 1 is a 1x 11 speed groupset that brings a host of great new features to the party. A single front chainring with 'Narrow-wide' tooth profile ensures chain retention. Add in the extra chain tension that comes from the 'clutch mech' design and you have the best chain security you can ride. SRAMs wide-range cassette to give you the maximum gear options for powering up and down the trails, whilst powerful Avid BB5 disc brakes give effortless stopping power and great modulation so you can finesse your braking efforts to suit the surface conditions. Apex 1 brings all of SRAM's cuting edge off-road technology to the entry level trail bike rider. There's an awful lot to love and a lot of new roads to ride.

Wheelset: Gipiemme Roccia Disk Built for road and off-road use the Gipemme Roccia is supremely versatile, perfect for our commuting , Gravel and cyclocross builds. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is a great do it all 700c / 29er wheelset.

Upgrades: Check our avaialble options to allow you to customise your bike, your way. Choose different tape, saddles, stem lengths and more or take this standard model at this brilliant price.
