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.

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 Pro model offers a superb complete build featuring a full Torayca 700 carbon frameset, the new Shimano Ultegra 11spd groupset and Mavic Ksyrium Equipe Wheels. The Axe Edge Pro is designed to offer the best compromise between performance and compliance and is suited perfectly to Sportive riders looking to take on the next century ride.
