The Longcliffe series delivers our no compromise values to cyclists looking to add speed to their ride and open the door to road cycling whilst continuing to benefit from Forme’s comfort and versatility features. The robust, hydroformed frame inherits a relaxed road geometry with a slightly shorter and more upright riding position, wider gear ratios and considered handlebar and saddle touch points.
We believe in size specific geometry, not female specific geometry. What is important, something equally relevant to men, is to purchase a bike that fits your intended use. Our Longcliffe C series has been developed for the anatomic and ergonomic requirements of a shorter male or female rider with a reduced stack and reach measurement. Once the optimum size has been selected the rider can then choose a standard or slightly wider, more comfortable saddle often suited to women. The correct saddle choice is imperative, or female riders in particular will find themselves sitting too far back on the saddle and bending at the waist, not the hips which will make the bike feel longer than it really is. We strongly recommend discussing your ideal size with one of our Fit & Collect partner stores to ensure a precise and stable ride.
