Product description

Fast urban commuting and fitness training is what the Giant Rapid 1 was built for. Geometry is comfortably stretched, for speed, while the flat handlebar improves visibility and enhances control.  

Frame & Fork

Key to the rapid acceleration and sharp reactions of the Rapid 1 is the Aluxx SL grade aluminium frame which is lightweight and has a high performance strength to weight ratio.

Double butted tubes remove any excess weight by shaving away unneeded aluminium from within the frame. The frame is lighter yet just as strong and stiff for a quicker ride. The Overdrive steerer tube gives you a stiffer front end and excellent precision steering - something you’ll want on compact urban commutes. This is the same frame as you’ll find on the Giant 0.

The aluminium fork comes with carbon fibre composite blades to help soak up vibrations from the road. This makes for a more comfortable ride feel.

There are also lugs for mudguards and racks, giving the Rapid 1 extra practicality. Carry all your essential ride gear in panniers, and stay clean and dry with mudguards.

Components

Equipped is a Shimano Tiagra 10 speed drivetrain with an FSA Omega compact double chainset. This gives you the same range and speed as you get on a road bike. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes are powerful and reliable in all weather conditions. They also have a great feel for confident speed control.

A composite seatpost helps to absorb road vibrations leaving you feeling less fatigued on longer rides.

Good quality Giant SR2 disc specific wheels are matched with puncture resistant tyres for hassle free riding. These tyres are 28mm wide offering a great a balance between speed and durability.

Very Impressed !.

My first flat bar road bike and what a surprise at how Light it is!!. Most certainly impressed with the performance and high quality of this bike. I will be changing the saddle though, and looking to fit mudguards when needed. The customer service from Tredz was five star.

My favourite bike!

My second road bike that I've owned, but also one of the best I've ever rode. Everything is really well built, feels solid and the bike looks fantastic. Tyres are grippy, reflective stripes on them are a great touch for night rides. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another Giant bike and the Tredz service was top notch too. Even got a free goody bag!

Amazing bike!

Just purchased this as an addition to the MTB I have. The difference in weight is amazing, even though it's not a carbon frame, the lightweight frame is great - don't even notice the hills! Good new spec over the 2015 model with decent brakes although the omission of bar ends meant me going out to buy some within the first week. I would definitely recommend this.
