Ridgeback Ridgeback Supernova EQ CITY BIKE (MUDGUARDS, CARRIER RACK, LIGHTS INCLUDED) Internal Gears
The range-topping utility bike is the ultimate British year-round high-speed commuting machine, featuring hub gears, disc brakes and integrated lights.
The Supernova EQ is built with speed and practicality in mind, with no compromises across the plentiful specification.
The aluminium frame is complemented by a lightweight carbon fork for superior ride quality and a significant weight saving, when compared to its steel counterpart.
Shimano's Nexus internal hub gear provides the ultimate in worry-free, low maintenance shifting. With the gears concealed within the hub and the chain only rotating (rather than shifting across a cassette in a derailleur-based setup), component parts have an incredibly long shelf-life.
As the gears themselves are internal, a dirty and contaminated cassette and derailleur is a thing of the past, with chains lasting up to ten times longer.
Disc brakes continue the theme of low maintenance, high performance cycling on the Supernova EQ. They provide superior all-weather stopping power and by not using the rim surface, prevent premature wheel wear.
Wet or dry, day or night, the Supernova EQ has you covered. Robust, full length aluminium mudguards come as standard and the Shimano dynamo front hub powers the integrated front and rear lights.
Finishing touches include a rear pannier rack, kickstand and tyres with reflective sidewalls, rounding out what we believe to be the ultimate machine for utility cycling.
