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 TR 1.0

Series Overview - As one of the fastest growing sports in the UK Track Cycling follows in the footsteps of the huge success of our Olympic Academy and the solid infrastructure put in place by British Cycling to support our developing Academy riders too. A bladed track special carbon fork is designed for both your aerodynamic and practical needs. The fork needs to be as versatile as possible for riders competing over several different disciplines to change wheels quickly and efficiently. Our steel reinforced dropouts offer additional strength and flexibility for any race or training session. Aero profiled AL7005 tubing on the TR 1.0 is bulkier than a standard road frame for mega rigidity.
