Some people would argue that this bike couldn’t possibly exist. An affordable road bike with a cutting-edge carbon fiber frame and fork and reliable components? You’re as likely to find a bike like that as you are to bump into Bigfoot riding a unicorn. Even our bean counters are scratching their heads, trying to figure out how we pulled it off.
Well, the core of our Century 4 C is the same meticulous blend of carbon fibers and slightly relaxed Enhanced Performance Geometry that makes our higher-end models ideal for anyone looking to log big miles.
A smart mix of affordable and functional components are what made this model possible. Highlights here include a Shimano Tiagra 2×10 drivetrain, Tektro disc brakes and HED Flanders C2+ wheelset.
High performance doesn’t have to mean high price.
Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.
