Reap Bikes (United Kingdom) - Press Release: Vulcan isn’t just a bike. Vulcan is a perfromance system.
With the DNA of its predecessor evident, the Vulcan carries forth the signature REAP silhouette with some minor alterations, but gives birth to many new features to become the world’s first triathlon hyper-bike. The complete package.
It embodies the idea that all parts of a system should engage with each other harmoniously for the optimal result. The idea that the limits of human performance shouldn’t be further capped by the equipment we choose to use. In the same way that we choose a nutrition strategy that works with our bodies to get us around a race course without bonking, or we choose socks that work with our shoes so we don’t get blisters, the Vulcan system works to propel us through the bike leg of a triathlon and helps us feel more fresh and ready for the run.
The Vulcan combines precision engineering with world class aesthetics to create a masterpiece of triathlon weaponry. We truly believe this is the best combination of aerodynamics, compliance and out-right speed that could well be the greatest triathlon bike ever produced.
The world’s most complete aero-integrated cockpit system:
We know from our own data that the majority of aerodynamic drag is not produced by the bike but by the rider, somewhere between 85-90%. This means that it is of paramount importance that we get you into an optimal position, which requires the right system to do that.
A system that is almost infinitely adjustable and fully integrated, while not causing massive inconvenience to you to alter when you need to find that perfect fit. The most all-encompassing aero cockpit system ever produced.
That is exactly the system we have created for the Vulcan, making it the first bike to have its own fully-integrated aero cockpit with carbon aero extensions. This is the world’s first triathlon hyper bike when combined with the integrated nutrition and hydration system.
Perfect fit for every rider:
With everybody having their own personal preference and riding style, it’s important that we offer equipment for every rider. Whether you’re basing your choice on aerodynamics or on comfort, we have the height of extensions that will work for you. The Vulcan will come with the choice of High, Mid, or Low-Rise extensions, with angled shims available for micro-adjustments too.
The Vulcan will be available to order from 20th November working on a first come, first served basis. The Vulcan will be handmade to order for you based on your specifications, meaning the first bikes from this batch will be shipped on 29th January 2021. Any Vulcans ordered from 2021 onwards will be delivered based on a lead time of 4-6 weeks starting the next working day after your date of purchase, subject to current demand.
