Point R 105 – Face Lift

7th Oct 2016

New from Mango Bikes, a tuneup for our flagship road bike, Point R 105. Working tirelessly to improve the customer journey and product offering today, Mango Bikes, your favourite direct to consumer bike brand, are offering more reasons than to ride than ever. More reasons to ride that triathlon, more reasons ride with your mates, more reasons ride to work. Because why the hell not.

A year on from it’s launch Point R has racked up the miles. Test ridden across Europe by staff members and trusted by trans american endurance riders, the bike has been a clear success. That being said the product team have gathered up all the advice, opinions and criticisms from friends and followers in the industry and have gone to work. This isn’t the 2017 model, we don’t conform to yearly model structure, it’s more of a face lift.

A split groupset has given way to full Shimano 105, as well as improvements to the tyres and brake set. You get so much more for your money with Mango Bikes; beautiful designed, well reviewed and realistically priced bikes. This is a sub £1000 bike with the care and attention most brands give to a bike three times the price. Chris Froome has an electronic gear system costing £2k. That’s nice for him. Point R looks, rides and feels the business and comes in four wicked colour ways.
