It’s not all that often that a new brand hits the market, but Pinnacle is just that. After two years of research and development the covers were finally pulled away at the London Cycle Show, revealing a range of nearly 34 bikes. It’s an impressive line-up and they’ve clearly done their homework.
But we’re not interested in entire range, just what they’ve got lined up for you. The guys at Pinnacle have split their road bikes into two distinct flavours: there’s the Sentinal range with a relaxed geometry (think Roubaix, Pilot etc) and those wanting a racier setup the Espelands. Two models are available in each range, with the Sentinal starting at £499.99 and the Espelands at £999.99.
Sitting atop the Sentinal range, the £749.99 2.0 features an a7 custom-shaped aluminium frame, with Pinnacle’s own P-Fit Solace geometry. They designed their own carbon forks too, and it’s worth mentioning that the Sentinal range has been designed with mudguard use in mind, there’s mounts and enough clearance for them – it would make a handy winter trainer. The transmission is all Shimano Tiagra; with Mavic CXP22 rims wrapped in Continental Ultra Sport 25mm tyres. Wellgo, Easton and Selle complete the rest of the finish.
Available in S, M, L and XL, a choice of Metallic Black paint and will be in shops sometime in December.
Aimed at those who race or just want a sportier, livelier ride, the Espelands 2.0 pictured here costs £1249.99. Specced with Shimano Ultegra, Mavic Aksium wheels and 23mm Continental Ultra Race tyres, with an assortment of Easton and Selle Italia finishing it of, it looks reasonably value for money. The frame is shaped in aluminium with a P-Fit Performance geometry, and carbon forks.
Available in S, M, L and XL, a choice of Metallic Burgundy paint and will be in shops next February.
