Strael

Overview

|Stræl – Noun – Old English – arrow, dart, missile

The Strael is totally contemporary in its design, its overall aesthetic is the outcome of every tube and detail being individually considered, from custom formed and shaped Reynolds 853 main tubes, to a full carbon fork we designed and manufactured. Every Strael frame is handmade in Europe to ensure the quality of craftsmanship equals that of the design.

This bike is fast yet comfortable, engineered to be stiff enough to give immediate and noticeable power transfer, yet compliant enough to feel nimble and engaging when riding at speed. Add to this the ability to fit full-length mudguards, a rear rack and large volume road tyres (up to 32c) and this becomes a true ‘year round’ British road bike.

Whether it be hot summer days in the mountains, pilgrimages to Flanders in the spring or crisp winter miles down meandering frosty lanes, we have created a bike that will accompany you throughout the transformation of the year.

ANRAED CARBON FORK

DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP

We created our own fork for the Strael as there was nothing readily available that met our demanding criteria. The key for us was to create a fork that had the weight, stiffness and ride characteristics of a road race fork but with ‘all season’ riding features such as proper mudguard mounts, clearance for 32c tyres (28c with guards) and even a dynamo lamp mount on the crown.

For our proportional frame geometry it was also important that we were able to maintain a short axle to crown length (381mm) to ensure that the frame and fork were designed in total harmony.

We worked with one of the very best carbon factories in Asia to produce a truly class leading product in terms of weight (365g), stiffness, strength and features.

BETTER FITTING BIKES

All Fairlight bikes have been thoughtfully conceived with the rider in mind. Everybody is different; our bikes are designed to account for differences in body proportions not just overall height. We call this ‘proportional geometry’. We offer all of our frame sizes in regular and tall versions so that you can find your perfect fit.
