About Us

With Prices Like These, How Can It Be Any Good?

Rapidé prides itself on being able to offer you excellent quality cycling products at affordable prices. We avoid high retail rent and we manufacture our own products thereby avoiding distributor and brand mark-ups. And because we design and develop our own products we have in-depth knowledge about them.

We've grown by word of mouth and personal recommendation which means we don’t have huge marketing budgets and sponsorship campaigns to pay for. We work smarter so that we can pass on the benefits to you. This is how we do business.

We Don’t Believe That Good Design Should Cost Extra

A little bit more thought, a little bit more practical real world testing makes a big difference to a product. We believe a well-designed, well performing product doesn't necessarily have to cost more.

The seeds of our company were planted in 2009, and the journey has taken us both up and down some winding roads. But our path, to build our own brand with our values and design our own products whenever possible, remains constant.

We Love Cycling

Rapidé, like any good cycling brand is managed by riders, for riders. We are incredibly passionate about all-things-cycling!

A lifetime of riding, both competitively and for pleasure, across all disciplines from BMX to track, road, triathlon and MTB, means what we offer comes with a wealth of experience and love for everything cycling.

When you buy from us, you’re dealing directly – which means we offer personalised advice and efficient service.
