As well as its lightweight frame, the Rapide has a RockShox SID SL Ultimate suspension fork with 100mm of travel and a remote lockout – perfect for locking it out as you ride and helping you climb faster.
Shimano’s 1×12 XT wide range drivetrain ensures you have enough gears for even the steepest climbs and that’s paired with Shimano’s M8100 brakes offering enough confidence inspiring stopping power for the way down.
A Schwalbe Racing Ray and Racing Ralph tyre combo provides the perfect blend of speed and grip and their laced to a pair of lightweight WTB KOM rims – which are tubeless ready.
