Cycles are of two types - Gearless and Geared cycles. With Gearless, the cycles moves and the speed is regulated on the basis of how the cyclist pedals. This kind of cycle has a single gear ratio and thus the faster you pedal, the faster the cycle would go and vice versa. Whereas, cycles with gear have multiple gear ratios that allow the cyclist to choose the gear based on the terrain he/she is riding on. Gear cycles also come with derailleurs that lets one shift between the different cogs to maintain cadence even though the terrain can differ. Cadence is the rate at which you pedal per minute and usually, cyclists like to maintain their cadence in the range of 60 to 90 RPM which puts less stress on the muscles and they can cycle for longer durations with less fatigue.
Our range of Decathlon Gear Cycles is suitable for terrains of all kinds and is designed to satisfy all needs and requirements of yours!
What do we offer?
Mountain Cycles: Mountain cycles as the name suggest are ones designed for off-road cycling. For mountain bikes, the durability of the bike is the most important feature. Cycling up the mountains and scaling its peaks demands a lot, not just from the cyclist, but also from this gear in terms of the ability to provide a pleasant riding experience while the terrain becomes uneven. For mountain bikes, the addition of gears reduces the effort to be put in by the cyclist when going up steep surfaces so that precious energy is conserved and this can be used to go farther.
At Decathlon, we design mountain gear bicycles with 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle for maximum efficiency and are designed to be extremely lightweight with an all-carbon frame. Our 21 gear cycle also comes with 100mm self-locking fork for maximum shock absorption and Level T dual-piston 160mm disc brakes for excellent stopping power.
Road Cycles: As much as riding along the mountains or off-road is fun, riding in the city is fun too. With riding within the city on rough roads, there arises a list of challenges that can stop the rider from having the best possible experiences.
