Strada 1 Crossbar
Versatility is the key to the design of the Strada range; whether you are commuting, riding for leisure or popping to the shops your Strada will get you there comfortably and quickly.
The Strada is designed with a fast, agile geometry and sports style riding position complete with adjustable height handlebars. The stripped back sports design and lightweight Aluminium frame means there’s no excess weight to hold you back. However the Strada comes equipped with mudguard and rack mounts to allow you to customise the bike to suit your personal needs. Available in either an open frame or choice of colours in a crossbar frame and sold in a wide range of sizes the Strada 1 is built for versatility.
The 650b wheels with high profile tyres have been specially selected for this range to provide added comfort and cushioning while riding as well as increasing your speed. Learn more about the benefits of 650B wheels on our blog. The 42mm wide tyres have a tread tailored to speed on smooth road surfaces and feature a reflective strip running around the rim of the tyre to help make sure you're seen and safe at night. The Strada is fitted with V-brakes to provide the stopping power and a women’s specific Selle Royal Shadow+ saddle designed to increase comfort while riding.
Equipped with 21 speed Shimano gearing with mega range feature which minimises the impact of steep hills by increasing the distance the rear wheel is turned for each pedal revolution and complete with Shimano’s EZ Fire shifters to make switching between gears simpler the Strada range is built for speed.
650b Wheels650b wheels are nimble and easy to manoeuvre. 650b wheels offer faster acceleration than 700c wheels. As 650b wheels can support a wider width tyre we’ve been able to fit multi-terrain tyres on our urban bikes. They feature hard centre tread for speedy tarmac riding and a rougher edge shoulder to improve off-road traction. The high volume tyres can run at lower pressures allowing them to depress on uneven ground meaning you’ll feel fewer bumps when riding off-road. Running your tyre at a lower pressure will also improve the grip of your tyres by increasing its contact area with the ground. All of these factors lead to a more comfortable riding experience when taking your urban bike off the beaten track.
