Introducing the Osprey WSD: an all-round Road riding performer specifically designed for Women. This medium frame Osprey WSD is the first of our new generation of Women Specific Design (WSD) Road bikes and is the perfect fit for female riders looking for a long distance or fast, everyday use Road bike. Most Road bikes are designed with a male rider in mind, yet the average female body has very different proportions which affect how a bike fits and feels. WSD is an approach to building bikes that starts from the ground up to better suit a female rider - from frame geometry to crank choice to all the touchpoints, everything is reconsidered to better suit a female rider.
Stepping up to the 2016 Reid Osprey will allow you to experience the speed and efficiency of a high-end road bike at a very affordable price. It's perfect for all-day epic rides, triathlons, hill climbing, training rides or even criterium racing. Its rear rack and mudguard mounts mean that you can easily set it up as a fast commuter or tourer.
The 6061 aluminium alloy frame comes in four sizes to give you a great fit. The frame is light, yet has excellent lateral stiffness for power in the sprints and the climbs. The carbon fibre fork provides a degree of vertical compliance to reduce road buzz while still giving precise handling. The Alex double-walled aluminium alloy rims are light and strong. They're tough enough to suit an every day commuter, but light enough to enjoy long distance endurance rides or hill climbs. The lightweight alloy hubs are serviceable and adjustable for exceptional durability. A 34/50 tooth crankset (front) with 11/30 (rear), combined with an 8 speed rear cluster, gives a wide, evenly spaced range of gears perfect for smashing hills. More smiles over more miles!
Shimano Claris shifters and derailleurs give outstanding reliability and performance. The Tektro dual-pivot alloy caliper brakes provide great stopping power, excellent modulation and easy adjustment. Integrated brake and gear levers (Shimano STI) means that you can brake and change gears without moving your hands from the hoods of the Drop Bars. Sealed bearings in the bottom bracket and a threadless 1-1/8" headset make for minimal maintenance.
