Product description

Developed for the city rider, the Giant Rapid 2 flat bar road bike is ready for speedy morning commutes, fast fitness sessions and exploring the countryside. Rapid by name, rapid by nature.

At the heart of the Rapid road bike is an advanced ALUXX SL aluminium frame with a high strength to weight ratio for sporty characteristics. Double butted tube walls for a lighter frame while keeping the frame strong. Double pass Smooth Welds and hand sanding create a strong and stylish looking frame.

A comfortable stretched out geometry is road bike inspired, but with the control and visibility offered by a flat handlebar. A composite carbon bladed fork to shave extra weight and reduce road vibrations.

Showing its commuter chops, the Giant Rapid 2 is fully compatible for mudguards, racks and is equipped with puncture resistant tyres. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes offer improved stopping in all weather, while a 8x9 Shimano Sora drivetrain offers all the gears needed for city riding.

Quality Giant SR 2 disc specific wheels are matched with 28mm wide tyres offering a great a balance between speed and durability. The Rapid 2 is 'The London Bike'.

Beautifully crafted flat bar road bike

I purchased a Giant Rapid 2 from TREDZ after looking for a flat bar road bike for some time. The bike arrived and after riding it I can only say that it's a superb bit if kit. Giant make great bikes generally, but this one is superlative in fit and finish, it handles great too. It has high quality equipment, looks and rider useability, im 6ft and the bike in medium/large is a great fit. Only one minimal downer.. the cheap pedals that are supplied.. but hey, other much higher end bikes don't come with any at all. So in summary a great bike.. Highly recommended.
