The undisputed ‘King of the Road’, this imposing gentlemen’s bicycle offers an unsurpassed ride thanks to its sturdy 28-inch wheels and regal riding position. Ideal for country jaunts, the Roadster Sovereign transports the rider to a more relaxed age using the finest low-maintenance componentry and hand-built quality.
Hop up onto the Roadster and it becomes clear that the refined elegance of this machine is far more than skin deep. A fully-enclosed chaincase and matching mudguards keep you dry and clean as you glide along, whilst the addition of a coat guard on the rear wheel prevents any mishaps that could otherwise spoil the riding experience.
The Roadster Sovereign's full complement of 8 wide-ratio hub gears, a handy frame-fitted lock and a front dynamo headlamp that never needs batteries ensure you enjoy years of reliable and, most importantly, pleasurable riding wherever you go.
