Epic Gravel 2020

More versatile than a road bike, more stable and adaptable than a cross bike, and faster over less aggressive off road terrain than a mountain bike. Gravel bikes present a great option for the people who want to cycle both on and off road...often in the same ride. Mellow single tracks, farm roads, gravel, crushed stone, muddy back lanes, tarmac — wherever. The gravel bike is a machine that’s capable of performing brilliantly on various surfaces while delivering comfort and speed. Their adaptability, versatility, and ruggedness make them a perfect commuting bike, an ideal light touring or bike-packing bike, [...]

Cannondale SystemSix – Beyond Aero:

When the Cannondale SystemSix was launched late last year it ended a long run of speculation about when, and in what form, Cannondale would step into the world of aero bikes. They definitely entered the market with a bang, producing the lowest-drag, most efficient, all-around fastest UCI-legal road bike on the market. Despite this Cannondale have made sure not to limit the SystemSix by calling it an 'aero bike'. As Cannondale themselves put it "The SystemSix makes every rider faster. You can call it free speed, or aerodynamic advantage. We call it the culmination of a system-wide approach to speed, efficiency [...]

Feature – Kinesis Tripster AT

Kinesis drew on years of experience and knowledge gained from their now legendary Tripster ATR in the creation of the Tripster AT, and from the first ride we knew this bike would have no problem living up to its 'All Terrain' name. With a fresh new look and a few tweaks the 2019 model is better than ever. If you're looking for a cutting edge adventure bike with heaps of versatility then look no further. Originally developed as a trans-continental all-road racing bike, the Tripster AT is stunningly quick across all surfaces, and balances this beautifully with comfort and [...]

Our Epic Winter Trainers

With the changing of the seasons blowing in some wintry weather we’ve had to accept that the colder months have arrived. Although training might become a bit more challenging, we have a range of mudguard compatible bikes ready to combat the damp and chilly weather with you. With the rapid growth of 'alternative' markets such as gravel and adventure riding we've also seen a big step up in the world of winter bikes. Traditionally this time of year was reserved simply for stronger and more affordable frames, however innovation and development has brought geometry, weight, handling, comfort, and speed [...]

Road Tested: Orbea Terra and Genesis Vapour

Hot off the back of a six-day tour through the Pyrenees, both the Orbea Terra Carbon and Genesis Vapour Carbon have gone up in our already lofty estimation. One of the more enjoyable sides of working at Epic Cycles is the extensive range of stunning bikes to choose from; however, with it comes the seemingly endless bike dither we all know too well. The requirements were simple: a comfortable bike that was also suitably light, fast and strong. Sounds like a lot to ask, but with the range of new ‘all-road’ bikes for 2019 being bigger than ever we [...]

Cross is Coming!

With the cross season fast approaching we’re excited to introduce you to our versatile range of cyclocross bikes here at Epic Cycles. As a rapidly growing discipline, and one we in store have fallen in love with, we’re happy to have expanded our range to cater for everyone’s needs. In our opinion this is the most accessible form of racing there is. It’s fun, social, affordable, gives purpose to your winter riding, and definitely makes the cold and wet days much more enjoyable!  Every brand we stock has won either national or world titles in cyclocross, so we know [...]

New Rider Alert!

We’re excited to introduce to you the latest rider to be supported by Epic Cycles. Molly Weaver is a professional road rider who decided to take a break from racing this year, however after some time away from the bike has decided to get back in the saddle and try something a little different. When the idea was pitched to us that she wanted to see if it was possible to go from being a pro roadie, to an extended period off the bike, to a competitive cyclocross racer we wanted to be a part of the journey.  Whether this leads to ‘epic’ success on [...]

All-New SystemSix Launched

After all of the rumours and speculation, the all-new Cannondale SystemSix is here. It has been a long time in development, but Cannondale have deliberately taken their time, rather than jumping onto the aero bandwagon, and the result has certainly been worth the wait.  Cannondale have developed the SystemSix with the aim of exploiting every one of the latest technical advances and relaxations of UCI regulations to deliver the fastest all round aero bike in the world.  And they have done it! >> full details
