An agressive riding position, adjustable leading link front/Hydrolastic rear Moulton suspension and a sub-9kg weight make the all-stainless steel Moulton SPEED the perfect choice for performance-orientated Sportive riders.
The new Moulton SPEED is the first production Moulton bicycle to weigh in at less than 20lb (9.1kg) – quite some feat for a fullsuspension road bike. Mainframe (centre section) weight is only 900g (AM SPEED, for comparison, is 1400g). The distinctive spaceframe design – stronger and stiffer than conventional diamond frames – is constructed entirely from stainless steels, including the latest Columbus XCR and Reynolds 953 materials. The time-honoured combination of the low aerodynamic drag, the rapid acceleration afforded by the small wheels, the low rolling resistance and the superlative comfort of the well-proven Moulton suspension, make the Moulton SPEED a perfect choice for the performance-orientated Sportive rider as well as those who just want to go out for a blast round the lanes.
The Moulton SPEED is built, meticulously, by dedicated craftsmen at Moulton’s Bradford on Avon factory in Wiltshire. Every joint is silver-brazed, and the entire frameset is laboriously polished to a mirror finish. With no paint to scratch, peel or crack, the
Moulton SPEED can be returned to ‘as-new’ condition with the application of metal polish. In standard ‘complete bicycle’ specification the Moulton SPEED is equipped with Campagnolo Super Record components, Moulton ‘M’ lightweight hubs and 10-28t cassette, ‘M’ in-line seat pillar and ‘M’ handlebar stem in Reynolds 953.
