Glider Wing Tip `Custom Built` Women’s Road Bike – 46` handbuilt frame:
The amazing Glider is without a doubt one of our best women’s custom built bikes to date.
A rare breed
`Glider` are a brand that is very rare and very little known about them. The frames are made in Northern Italy and made with top quality carbon. The ‘Wing Tip’ is the ultimate model in the range and thus made of the finest quality carbon available so consequently is light, stiff and responsive.
Only the best components
The bike was built with some of the best components available, without being overbuilt. Offering a full and functional Shimano Ultegra groupset the need for offering Dura-Ace wasn’t necessary as we felt the savings in cost would be better spent on wheels, tyres and components.
The `War Logos` colour scheme is both unique and visually striking and in order to capitalise on this we colour co-ordinated the parts.
The whole bike looks factory made with the colour scheme blending seamlessly throughout, a mix of Italian flair with Japan and Chinese reliability.
The seat post, stem and handlebars all come from PZ Racing. The wheels are a superb set of Mavic Cosmic Carbone’s that allow speed and comfort. The tyres are a super set of Vredestein Tricom tyres that suit the wheels for speed and also offer a degree of punctures resistance. The bike is then complemented by Italian Selle Italia professional bar tape and top of the range Shimano Pro titanium railed women’s specific saddle.
What you are left with is a bike of extreme magnetism. Not your usual run-of-the-mill road bike but a lovingly and thoughtfully designed bike.
A bike for every occasion
We have used our expertise to make a comfortable long distance racing machine; but equally a bike that can be used for everyday use.
