When the Olympics get underway later this week, keep an eye on the Kiwi track cycling team. They’ll be riding a new, revolutionary design of bike that they believe will have a massive impact on the Rio velodrome.
The high-tech design is the result of a three year, closely-guarded project between bike manufacturers, wheelwrights and aerodynamic experts. The final outcome? A lighter frame, reduced aerodynamic drag and one, very fast bike. Now it’s just up to the riders!
While we don’t have access to the supersonic wizardry of our Olympic team, we do have a new, high performance bike in stock: the Specialized Carbon Roubaix. The 2016 model of this superb road bike has just landed in our Auckland branch, and to celebrate we’ve got a few special deals lined up for you:
Roubaix Day Sprint*
One day hire for $80 (normally $90), with helmet. Available for weekday hires only.
Roubaix Weekend Pursuit*
Hire the Roubaix for a whole weekend, picking up before 5pm on Friday and returning before 10.30am on Monday, and pay for only two days hire ($175). We’ll also throw in a bike helmet. Please note that bikes returned on Monday after 10.30am will incur a $60 fee.
The Roubaix features a light carbon frame and fork, plus Shimano 105 11 speed components. It’s designed to feel stable and comfortable on the longest of rides, making it a great choice for the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.
To book Roubaix hire, send us an email, or give the team in Auckland a call on 09 257 4673.
Have a great week,
*Available for Auckland hires only. Offer available during August and September. Bike drop off/pick up at hotels available for fee.
