A number of top British cyclists have been involved in creating cycle ranges under their own brand name – Chris Boardman, Sir Chris Hoy, Bradley Wiggins and Victoria Pendleton to name but a few. The latest rider to bring out a range is the ultra competitive and successful Laura Trott, who has created a four bike line designed specifically for female cyclists to ensure that the riding experience is a pleasurable one. A girl riding a mans bike fitted with a saddle designed for a male anatomy is not the way to nurture a love for cycling!
As one of Great Britain’s finest riders with World and European Champion honours, plus being a four times Olympic gold medallist, she knows a thing or two about bikes and how to get the best out of them. One thing that is noticeable about the range is that Laura has not focused at just the professional end of the market, but has ensured that the models encompass all levels or rider ability. So if you’re looking for a first bike to get out and get fit, there’s one in the line up. Or if you want something to ride competitively there’s one of those too.
The Laura Trott bike range
As you would expect there is an emphasis on drop handlebar bikes with three road bikes in the range. Each model features a lightweight alloy frame coupled with carbon fork, with the specification improving as you go up through the model range. In addition to the road bikes, there is the HYB1 hybrid model that also features an alloy frame and carbon forks, plus 700c wheels and hydraulic disc brakes.
All models in the range are finished with single colour paintwork that is attractive and discrete.
Laura Trott RD3
The RD3 is the flagship of the four model Laura Trott range. The carbon forks give precise steering and reduce harshness and ‘buzz’ through the bars. The RD3 is equipped with a Shimano 105 groupset, renowned for its high quality and very good value for money as is the Shimano RS11 wheelset.
Available from Halfords but exclusively as an online purchase. The Laura Trott RD3 retails for £899.
