Irene 8-Speed Internal White/BlueBIKRET8SPDA15WHT
Enjoy the subtle nostalgic style of the XDS Irene retro bike with the added convenience of modern engineering. The vintage look of the Irene is one that is understated. Fashionable but not flashy. Hub gear technology further simplifies the look of the Irene, offering ample gearing ratio without clunky external gears and a rear derailleur.
Cycle through 8 speeds with the perfect gear ratio for a range of terrains with the Shimano Nexus Hub Gear. With Shimano Nexus, the gears are housed in the Irene’s rear hub, protected by a tough outer shell. This reduces the need for maintenance, keeping the gears clean and safe.
Built from a lightweight aluminium 6061 alloy frame, the Irene is light and nimble on the road. With the stiffness of aluminium, pedalling is more efficient, with less energy being lost with the flexion of the frame. A low step-through frame makes mounting and dismounting safe and comfortable. As with everything else about this bike, the Irene features fenders that serve a practical purpose to keep you clean, but also complement the modest retro style. The front basket and rear rack also serve the fashion of this bike without being too showy.
Ride with confidence in the safety of the Irene, with Tektro alloy V brakes offering reliable stopping power. For greater comfort and security while riding, the Irene features double wall rims, which are stronger and less prone to damage.
The vintage look is elegantly simple with the XDS Irene retro style bike.
Low Step-Through Alloy Frame
Experience the ease of riding on a lightweight aluminium alloy frame that is nimble and easily manoeuvrable. The Low Step-Through design makes mounting and dismounting both safe and simple even in a dress or casual wear.
Shimano Nexus Internal Hub
Enjoy a consistently smooth ride with the 8 speed Shimano Nexus Internal Hub gear. Reduced maintenance is a trademark of Shimano Nexus hub gearing, with gears protected from external debris. The result is a greatly reduced need for maintenance and cleaning of the drivetrain.
Double Wall Rim
Trust in the strength of Double Wall Rims to keep you riding smoothly on the roads. Thinner 700Cx28C tyres reduce roll resistance on the road to make pedalling more efficient.
Front basket and rear rack make riding with your valuables simpler and safer.
