Forme Bikes

Forme Bikes are proudly designed and developed in Derbyshire. Following observation of a clear gap in the market for British high quality aluminium bikes the range was launched with a small collection of 5 road bike models at key selling price points with immediate success in March 2010. The strength of Forme combined with the phenomenal consistent growth in cycling has allowed them to develop thier range to 40 models in less than 2 years.

Every Road and Mountain bike produced by Forme is tested by ex-professional cyclists on some of the most technical trails, steepest climbs and fastest descents the Peak District has to offer to create a product that can be understood by its rider. If you are familiar with the geography of the Peak District names such as Blackrocks, Thorpe, Axe Edge, Alport, Shining Cliff Woods etc will be well recognised and therefore the formula for selecting Forme model names will not come as a surprise to you.

Forme designed bikes are engineered to meet the demands of the British climate which, following many testing miles, can be pretty wet and grim. Key features often over looked by international competitors can be found on every bike within the range to ensure all your daily riding demands we are met.

Forme Bikes

Choosing the right bike and frame in particular can be the difference between heaven and purgatory for any sportive rider! We have maintained the "bling" looks and lightweight responsive performance with the Axe Edge but are introducing a frame that doesn't leave you unable to walk after a long weekend of riding and exploring.

The Axe Edge 2.0 offers you the identical frame build quality as our Torayca 700 Carbon Fibre models, but doesn't come with the steep price tag you would expect. Featuring a full Shimano Sora transmission System and strong Mavic CXP22 rims, this model is the logical choice for all cyclists looking to make an upgrade to the world of carbon for a lightweight, fun and reliable ride.
