Revolution Range Highlight 2016: The Revolution Cross

Revolution Cross Bicycle 2016

We have discontinued our Revolution range due to supplier issues. Please browse commuter/hybrid bikes here.

Starting at under £300, a Revolution Cross bike delivers the speed potential of a drop handlebar road bike made more versatile with fatter tyres and clearance for mudguards. Looking at these bikes, it’s easy to understand why cross bikes are the fastest growing bicycle category with our customers.

Good things shared by every Revolution Cross

Strong wheels

The stout 32-spoke wheels are built with eyeleted, double-wall alloy rims to better cope with potholed roads and cyclepaths.

Security

Our Cross bikes’ wheels are bolted on with Allen key security skewers that look like this. (While quick release wheels and seatpost clamps can be convenient for the rider, they can also be a gift for opportunistic scallies intent on nicking bike parts.) That’s why the saddle is also Allen bolted to make it more secure when the bike is left unattended.

Quality rubber

Every Revolution bike is shod by Kenda – one of the world’s best-respected tyre manufacturers.

Our Cross bikes are fitted with grippy, hardwearing, fast but forgiving Kenda 700×32 tyres with Kevlar (as used in bullet proof flak jackets) sub treads for extra puncture resistance.

Confidence-inspiring stoppers

Frequently spotted on the top brands’ four-figure bikes, Tektro Brakes are among the most reliable brands in bicycling.

You’ll find confidence-inspiring Tektro brakes on every 2016 Revolution bike.

Strong lightweight frame & fork – made to last

The 7005 aluminium alloy frame and hi-tensile steel fork are strong (lifetime guaranteed) and, for the money, relatively lightweight.

Durable finish

Speccing 30% matt black paint on every adult 2016 Revolution model is possibly the best example of creating deliberately utilitarian bikes. Why? Because this shade of matt black just happens to be the toughest, the most mark resistant and the least expensive shade in our frame builder’s palette.

We think you’ll agree that a matt black finish looks good without being too bling – not a bad idea on a bike you’re likely to leave unattended when you lock it up.

Minimal branding

Believe it or not, the number of decals on many bikes run to double figures once you start counting the stickers on the wheel rims, handlebars, top caps and all. We’ve taken that number down to just three – just enough to identify the bike and register its legal CE compliance. Fewer decals mean more cost savings we pass on to you.
