Introducing Lauf

Components, News, Technology|

It’s always a long process of research and planning behind the scenes, from the moment we first discover a brand to the moment it comes into store for the first time, and this one has been one of the more striking and innovative concepts we’ve come across. Over the past 18 months we've increasingly diversified our line-up of bikes; and the world of off-roading has been one of the most rapidly growing areas of our diversification. With gravel bikes, all-road bikes, cross bikes and MTBs all becoming a key element of the Epic Cycles portfolio, we knew that Lauf [...]

2019 Gravel Bikes:

News, Uncategorized|

More durable than a road bike and faster than a mountain bike. Gravel bikes present a great option for the riders who want to travel on and off road. Mellow single tracks, farm roads, gravel, crushed cobblestones, tarmac — whatever. The gravel bike is a machine that’s capable of performing brilliantly on various surfaces while delivering comfort. Their adaptability, versatility, and ruggedness make them a perfect commuting bike, an ideal light touring or bike packing bike, a great winter trainer, or simply the one bike that can tackle any sort of terrain you care to try on it. They typically [...]

Road Tested: Orbea Terra and Genesis Vapour

News, Uncategorized|

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 [...]

2019 – the year of the aero bike

News, Uncategorized|

Over the past few years we’ve seen a massive step up in the development of performance frames, with technological advances and innovation leading to more and more competition to create the fastest bikes. Arguably the biggest player in this fight has been aerodynamics. The focus on creating the most streamlined machines possible has made 2019 the year of the aero bike. Drag is the biggest force working against a rider, so eliminating every bit possible is the biggest challenge for the manufacturers. At speeds in excess of 15mph air resistance is the biggest force you must overcome. It’s massively [...]

All-New SystemSix Launched

Cannondale, News|

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
