Item specifics

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is ... Read moreabout the condition
Brand: Dawes
Dawes Sportive SL 10speed 105


Size: 53cm

Colour: White

The Sportive SL’s aluminium tubes are substantial and custom-specified, the top-tube is downward bowed, square-edged and looks quite striking. This is a pretty smooth ride, for an aluminium frame it does absorb the rumbles of uneven roads quite well, vibration gets through eventually but it’s not uncomfortable. At speed it feels stable, potentially not for the most aggressive racer but more suited to the sportive rider who wants to feel reassured and comfort equally.
The ever reliable Shimano 105 front and rear mechs are used for the gears and shifters providing firm changes, driving this is the FSA Omega chainset, it’s not in the same quality band as 105 but works perfectly well. Shimano provides the 105 rear hub and Dawes provides the front hub with Alex R450 rims.
Arriving with a great range of frame sizes from 43cm to 58cm the Sportive SL certainly is a very worthy machine for the hugely competitive £1000 market; it will serve the more long distance comfort orientated cyclist well.
