The Brand-X RD-01 is a solid performer, which combines lightness, durability, adaptability and affordability. Equally at home on long winter training rides or daily commutes to the office, the lightweight 6061-T6 alloy frame has been designed with all year riding and commuting in mind.A UD carbon bladed fork with alloy steerer reduces buzz from rough sections of road, for increased rider comfort. There is ample clearance for mudguards and rear eyelets for ease of fitment (no eyelets on fork). Pannier rack mounts broaden the RD-01's capabilities as an all rounder for commuting and social riding.Comfortable geometry offers a more relaxed riding position, which translates into increased comfort and reduced rider fatigue, a feature that we have come to appreciate ourselves when making early morning commutes when carrying a bag on our backs.
