    BEST OF
    BRITISH STEEL

    Designed, built, and tested in the UK, the CGR 725 is manufactured from the finest Reynolds steel tubing, tubing produced as it has been for over a century at their factory situated in the very heart of England.

    REYNOLDS STEEL
    TUBING

    The frameset is manufactured from British Reynolds 725 steel tubing which is triple butted with seamless welds for exceptional strength and durability whilst offering that compliant ride quality that is synonymous with a high-quality steel frame.

    MODERN DESIGN
    FEATURES

    *All cables are routed internally through the frame to enhance the sleek look of the bike as well as provide additional protection for the cables. There's ample clearance front and rear which improves the CGR 725's mud-shedding ability as well as enabling tyres up to 47mm in width on 650b wheels and 45mm on 700c wheels to be fitted, which certainly ticks all the boxes for mixed terrain riding.

    *Rear brake hose is external on double gear systems.

    FULL CARBON
    FORK

    A full carbon construction with a tapered fork steerer helps to stiffen up the front end for enhanced steering control while also damping vibration from rough surfaces for a bump smoothing ride.

    DISC
    BRAKES

    Flat-mount disc brakes provide superior stopping power and control over variable terrain and in mixed conditions.

    MULTI- WHEEL SIZE
    COMPATIBLE

    Compatibility with 650b, 700c or 29er wheels opens up a vast choice of tyre options and allows the setup to be tailored to suit a wide array of terrains, surfaces and riding styles.
