Pace Cycles introduce the new RC295 Trail Bike

18 December 2019  |  

Welcome to the highest performance Pace ever and the darkest horse from our stable. A carbon composite thoroughbred conceived to be ridden hard, yet stay poised and unruffled.

You'll find the RC295 remarkably versatile; as happy in the trail centre as it is on an enduro stage or any trail paved with mud, roots and rocks. Utilising the latest generation of our unique free floating suspension system fitted with a metric shock to keep the wheel hooked up and driving hard.

Long, low and supremely composed - we'd like to present the state-of-the-art RC295.

It’s coming up to a year since we revealed our new prototype Pace RC295 and since then we’ve been putting in the hard miles, sweating the details and buffing the design for production. And now we’re ready- tooled up and fired up with the first production frame out of the mould and ready for assembly with our latest cool 2020 build kits. Like our other framesets the RC295 will now be available as an Ultimate Rolling Chassis, Factory Ultimate complete bike build (as well as a Custom Build Option) and of course a Frame only option but within that frame kit we thought that a premium product like this should come fully loaded.

So we’ve equipped our Pace frame with the superb Rockshox Deluxe RT3 factory tuned to compliment the kinematics of the ‘295 with the shock also featuring an Offset Bushing to allow adjustment of the bikes ride height and compliment your choice of 29er or 27.5”+ rear wheel.

The frame also comes equipped with a top drawer finishing kit- Thru Axle from DTSwiss, Seatclamp from Hope and a complete spare Pace Gear Hanger Kit.

For protection we’re also including a full size carbon fibre frame protector for the underside of the mainframe custom moulded by Rockguardz, plus a pair of Armour Tubes to protect the cables and hoses beneath the BB.

And if you think this sounds like a great quality package then consider this- all the above frameset for just £1899… thats right not just a great spec’ but mega value too. Pre-order open now. Delivery: All sizes due in January.
