Flagship Bikes – the best top of the range bikes available to hire… On or off-road

What are flagship bikes?

It is very rare for bikes of this calibre to be available for hire as these are the very best bikes of their type. With the lightest frames, wheels and top end components, they offer you a unique opportunity to ride bikes you may only have dreamt about.

Try a flagship full suspension mountain E-bike to float over the many tracks and trails that radiate from our base in Lowick. Zoom off at speed on a carbon or titanium frame road bike with Shimano Di2 electronic gears, making hills a breeze. Or, new for 2021, the Mondraker mountain E-bikes with power to spare in their 625wH batteries. Whichever flagship bike you choose, you will have a great day’s cycling.

Look out for the flagship bikes in the Mountain Bike, Mountain E-bike, Road Bike and Road E-bike sections.
