Kudos Rapide is a true gentlemans ‘Ride to Work’ bike. It utilises all the hill climbing technology we learned from our performance series matched with all the practical features required of a proper commuter bike.
Such features include a comfy saddle, strong mudguards, Kenda KWICK 700c anti-aquaplane tyres, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, USB power (out), set-off throttle and King Meter display. The latest wind cheating battery shape and 30-speed Shimano Deore gears also allows the bike to be ridden unassisted.
The styling was intended to be smart but understated. The Kudos Rapide and Sonata bikes would make an ideal ‘his and hers’ bicycle combination.
