The brand ethos of Forme is that they design bikes for British conditions and terrain, all tested right here in the UK.
The core of the range is based around aluminium-framed bikes that land between £600-900, but Forme do have four carbon models above that: the Axe Edge Sport 2.0 LE, Thorpe Sport, Thorpe Pro and the Shimano Dura-Ace equipped Flash LTD.
The Thorpe Sport (£1,400) is SRAM Apex equipped in the group’s WiFli incarnation, so the FSA Gossamer chainset is paired with a wide-ranging and climb-friendly 12-32t cassette. The Thorpe Pro (£1,900) goes one up from that and offers a Shimano Ultegra groupset mixed with a KMC chain and 4ZA finishing kit (4ZA being another of the brands under the Moore Large banner).
Right at the top of the range, and a fair jump up from the others, the Flash LTD goes full Dura-Ace with a set of Mavic Ksyrium SLR wheels. The frame’s electronic compatible should you want to upgrade, and the full bike will set you back a cool £5,000.
