Road Bikes

Road bicycles represent the heart and soul of the cycling domain. Whether it's a child finding his first freedom on two wheels, or a pro peleton making its way up the Col du Tourmalet, road cycling is where it all originates from. Modern road bikes are built for speed and manoeuvrability, but that also provide the long-distance comfort and wider tire clearance demanded by today's cyclists. Whether you're looking to surpass your personal best time or you're more endurance oriented, there are countless road bike options to choose from. With top quality, versatility and durability in mind, the list of worthy candidates significantly narrows.

Rider Feedback

THe R3 Omni was stable at speed with predictable, forgiving manners in corners. The beefy chainstays offer good stiffness when stomping on the pedals.

Thank you for delivering a wonderful, unique bike. I can clearly see the work that has gone into the design and build and attention to detail. I have done a number of rides over the past few weeks and really have enjoyed riding the bike and can appreciate the merits of a titanium frame.
Michael Mould

Thanks for the R3 Omni. I 'm really happy with it. It really is a quiver killer; it can do everything, and do it well. It's equally at home on a group ride at 40+ km/h as it is grinding out double track in the conversation area.

Yielding the exact ride characteristics I had been looking for. I am finding the bike comfort level to be superior, have a tendency to ride quicker, and am riding with greater confidence.
Jim Krakowiak
Bluffton, SC
I am very happy with it. The fit is pretty much perfect. The bike rides like a dream — much like Columbus steel, but even more lively. It accelerates quickly even with marginally longer chain stays than the race version. Beautiful finish on the frame. It will be my go-to ride for many years.
