The ASR 8.9 is a bike designed to make your winter riding as enjoyable as in the summer. Reynolds 725 tubing and a carbon fork offer a great blend of traditional comfort and resilience of steel with modern composites design for precise handling. With mud guards keeping you clean, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes providing reliable stopping regardless of conditions, and a Shimano 105 groupset providing gears for any terrain, the ASR 8.9 is ready for almost anything. Reflective orange decals running through the frame and reflectives on the mudguards ensure that you'll stand out on dark winter days too.
The ASR 8.9 geometry is influenced by our award winning MTB and Hybrid bikes to increased stability, comfort and control for long days in the saddle when the rain is coming down and the mercury falls. The bikes have a longer top tube, head tube and a slacker head angle compared to our SLR bikes to keep handling stable, but use a shorter stem to keep steering lively for making corrections if you do loose grip.
