Having first started to sell road bikes back in 2014, outdoor equipment retailer Go Outdoors is looking to move up in the bike market with two full carbon road bikes priced at £800 and £1,000.
The top of the range £1,000 model will be the Calibre Nibiru 2.0. The bike has apparently been put through testing over tough Peak District roads and is designed “to be thrown around and used to attack, but won’t break your back on longer rides”.
The other new bike is the Nibiru 1.0, which comes with an identical frame to its big brother, but with slightly less expensive components. This means a full Shimano Sora groupset, with the attractive choice of an 11-32t cassette, and Mavic CXP 22 rims on Formula 32 hubs. However the tyres and finishing kit are the same as on the 2.0.
Mike Sanderson, cycling buyer for Go Outdoors, said: “I expanded the range into road and commute with the same design ethos and passion to give customers the best experience in cycling so they can enjoy the sport I love so much that has brought me so much.
“All of the bikes offer features and equipment not normally available at such prices, making these bikes some of the best value on the market.”
