Apollo Giro 40 is a great value disc brake equipped road bike. Ideal for the rider looking to start road riding and wants a great value bike that will last. The relaxed geometry also suits the long distance commuter perfectly.
The disc specific frame is made from 6061 aluminium for reduced weight and increases stiffness, the Giro offers outstanding performance for price. Designed for long days in the saddle the more relaxed geometry also makes this bike suitable for people who have a longer commute or are riding socially. The Giro 40 also comes equipped with a carbon fibre fork, offering lighter weight, more responsive steering, as well as a smoother ride.
The Giro 40 features a Shimano 105 groupset for the ultimate compromise of price and performance, 105 has long been renowned as the workhorse of the road bike category giving many a rider top performance and years of reliability. A compact crankset paired with a wide range cassette gives this bike excellent hill climbing ability and allows the rider to maintain an efficient cadence even on the longest accent.
Disc brakes on road bikes are becoming increasingly popular road bikes due to the many benefits they offer over convention rim brakes. They provide increased power and feel regardless of the weather conditions, and also removes any stress and wear on the rims which means increased longevity of the wheels. The Giro 40 uses Tektro mechanical brakes for optimum stopping performance at an amazing price.
