Malvern Star Escape 2w

The Malvern Star Escape bikes are designed as a do anything bike. Maybe that sounds boring, but the bikes are fun to ride,  and really are an all-purpose bike that you can use whether riding with a friend for a leisurely cruise or maybe to go on long rides that will require a somewhat more effort on a bike that can get along at a reasonable pace.

The Escape 2w is a cross between a flat bar road bike and a hybrid. They are certainly designed as a sportier style hybrid, rather than the sedate, sit upright, leisurely cruiser. Climbing hills and moving along at a faster pace will be easier on this sportier style bike.

The Escape is fitted with front suspension that is adjustable to suit different weight riders and also has a lock-out feature. The lock-out is ideal when greater performance is preferred, as the bike will climb more efficiently, and is more responsive to more power being applied. If you wish to ride in greater comfort, the lock-out would be disengaged.

Gears and brakes are excellent. It has hydraulic disc brakes, which are responsive yet easily controlled, giving positive braking regardless of conditions. The gear system is Shimano Altus 27 speed. Again providing positive control, the gears change smoothly and efficiently and have a range suitable for any terrain. The gears are a pleasure to use, with the light, precise action.

The bike will take mudguards, a rack, or a baby seat if required.

The tyres are called Happy Medium which is an apt description. The tyres have a harder compound in the centre of the tread, which helps the tyre roll easily, but the sides of the tyre have a softer compound to grip well when cornering or riding on rougher terrain.

Of course, the saddle fitted to this bike is designed as a comfortable, yet sporty saddle. It is a ladies specific saddle with plush gel padding and will suit most ladies desiring this style of bike.

Why not come in for a free test ride?
