One for the road?

With their high-speed, light-weight and good looks, Racing Bikes have significantly increased in popularity in Guernsey in recent years.

The local racing scene is coordinated by the Guernsey Velo Club which promotes activities including races for all age groups from six years upwards.

We have racing bikes for all abilities and expectations ranging from £465 - £5000+. Each level offers value for money depending on what each individual is looking for. If we think a £900 bike equipped with Shimano 105 will offers best value for money to a novice triathlete we will advise them accordingly.

Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105

The perfect balance of race-day performance and all-day ridability.


Specialized Tarmac SL4 Elite

Few bikes invoke podium dreams and longing like our Tarmac, and with the Tarmac SL4 Elite, you get your slice of the Tarmac performance lineage at a price that's more than favorable. You'll also find an identical, Grand-Tour-winning geometry, plus a FACT 9r carbon fibre construction that's nearly mirrors what you'll find under the likes of Peter Sagan and Alberto Contador. For the spec, we selected components that deliver the best bang for your buck, durable Axis Elite wheels, a mix of Shimano Ultegra 6800 and Praxis, and a bevy of Body Geometry components that maximize performance by providing the utmost in comfort.

  • The FACT 9r carbon frame combines lightweight performance and compliance to ensure that you receive the legendary climbing responsiveness and descending prowess you'd expect from a Tarmac. 
  • S-Works FACT full carbon fork with tapered construction provides incredible front end stiffness and steering response for instantaneous accelerations and high-speed descents.
  • Significantly lighter than comparable wheelsets in its class, these tough Axis Elite wheels offer tremendous value in one smooth-rolling package.

 




Cannondale SuperSix Evo Disc Ultegra

The new EVO is the best all around road racing bike ever made thanks to its perfect balance of everything it takes to go fast.


Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1

Engineered for real-world performance, especially on challenging roads and long days in the saddle. The Advanced-grade composite frame features endurance geometry with the perfect blend of light weight, stiffness and road-smoothing compliance. The OverDrive 2 steerer tube and composite fork work together to boost front-end stiffness and precision. Disc brake technology with 12mm front and rear thru-axles gives you total control, even on rough roads and poor conditions. The D-Fuse seatpost smoothes out road vibrations and the PowerCore bottom bracket turns every pedal stroke into positive forward motion.


Specialized Roubaix Comp

When you're rolling smoother, you're rolling faster. And regardless of if you're on the cobbles of Northern France or the chip and seal of your hometown, you'll benefit immensely from the all-new Roubaix Comp. The frame is the lightest that we've ever made, and it's been constructed from our FACT 10r carbon fibre. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some engineering sorcery, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Roubaix outperforms anything on the market. Lastly, we spec'd it with awesome components, like Ultegra/105 11-speed shifting, hydraulic disc brakes, and ultra-tough DT R460 Disc wheels.

  • Featuring our Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The FACT 10r frameset is exceptional in every way, offering the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness. Meanwhile, the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control.
  • A Roubaix Disc fork is built from our top-end FACT 11r carbon fibre for supreme stiffness, strength, and reactivity, while a thru-axle design only stands to bolster all of the above.
  • This Praxis Zayante 50/34T crankset is perfect for tackling steep grades and rough roads.
  • Comes equipped with a 40lbs spring (color: yellow, weight: firm) installed, and also includes both 13lbs (color: blue, weight: soft) and 25lbs (color: black, weight: medium) springs that can be installed to match the terrain you're riding.
