RDS Moda Race Bikes

  • We've Teamed Up With Moda!

    For 2016 our team our proud to be using Moda Bikes. We chose Moda because they are UK Designed, Tested and Assembled, and we were able to spec exactly the build we need for our Junior Race Team, right down to handlebar width, crank length, gear ratios etc.

We have been very impressed with how the bikes have handled and perfromed in training and races. Unlike 'Sportive' bikes, which give you a relatively unright riding position; race bikes are lower at the front for better aerodynamics. Race bike also feature steeper geometry for quick handling in race conditions - you could easily use a 'Race Bike' in sportive but you would struggle with a 'Sportive Bike' in a race.

The Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 Speed Groupset probably offers the most 'Bang for your bucks' of any groupset on the market, offering faultless shifting, light weight and nice asthetics - and the components have proved to be very reliable. The Moda Vivo frame uses a new advanced  is a lighter than a lot of carbon frames and our special Team Build bikes tip the scales at just 7.2kg, considerably lighter than a number of similarly priced carbon-fibre bikes.

Recent advancements in technology and manufacturing techniques has made aluminium a viable option again — and has afforded Moda the opportunity to rediscover its humle beginnings in the skill of welding tubes. But now, instead of the need to focus on keeping costs low and quality high, the chance to use higher grades of aluminium tubing means it can produce lightweight, race-ready bikes that aren’t just carbon copies of the competition.

The Vivo lives up to its name and feels lively. The well-finished frame feels stiff and keen to respond to rider input, whether that’s hard acceleration or enthusiastic cornering. The American Classic wheelset is a generous inclusion at such a low RRP and overall there’s a race-bred feeling to the Vivo that seems unlikely given its material.
