WHAT IS A WINTER HYBRID BIKE?
The best of both worlds, hybrid bikes are designed to take you from the city streets to light off-road routes and back again. By the very definition of their versatility, they are ideally suited to winter riding. Lightweight and stylish, these easy-riding bikes provide a comfortably upright riding position that is perfect for riding mile after mile at the lower speeds that are typical in winter.
Wider tyres ensure that they offer the stability and grip to handle various terrain whilst providing a cushioned ride that enhances rider comfort. Disc brakes have very much become the norm for this style of bike, thanks in no small part to the precise and assured all-weather braking that they offer. Hybrid bikes are also winter resistant, offering the possibility to fit full coverage mudguards to fend off dirt whilst shielding the rider from getting wet.
WHERE WOULD I RIDE A WINTER HYBRID BIKE?
The sheer versatility hybrid bikes offer means that they are more than capable of handling a mixture of terrains and surfaces. Fully equipped for everyday journeys, their generous tyre clearance, mounting points for mudguards and a rear pannier rack make them tailor-made for enjoying the daily adventure of the city commute and scenic rides in the country.
