The Speed 5 is Pashley’s tribute to the heyday of gentlemanly British cycle racing. A time when riders would come together in the noble pursuit of breaking record times with only the satisfaction and thrill of success as a reward. It embodies all that was truly great about this era, you can follow in the footsteps of these men with this bicycle.
The British racing green and gold colour scheme is a classic combination and hints at this heritage, as does the frame-mounted number plate. The traditionally slack frame geometry gives a dynamic and comfortable riding position for maximum speed and performance. This lineage is backed up by hand-built quality – every Speed 5 is meticulously constructed by Pashley’s very own dedicated craftsmen, the frames are made from the legendary Reynolds 531 steel to produce a bicycle that will last a lifetime. The quality of construction is matched by the components they have chosen for this most special of bikes. The wide diameter Sturmey Archer hub brakes allow you to brake late for corners, giving you ultimate control over your speed, and the Brooks Swift leather saddle will form to your shape over time for a high level of comfort and full range of movement.
The Speed 5 is not just a revival of path racing tradition but an advancement of the sport, it embodies the principles of the early pioneers with a refined design they would be truly proud of.
