The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that Swift Carbon are one of the new sponsors of the club this year. We thought this a great opporunity to introduce this new brand that you may not be familar with….
SwiftCarbon is a clean-sheet company, structured around what they believe is the most effective way to produce high performance carbon fibre bicycles. The brand is the brainchild of South African ex-professional cyclist Mark Blewett & the range covers road, mountain and TT disciplines.
The range leading Ultravox Ti is currently ridden by Team DRAPAC in Australia and Japan’s Team Lemonade Bellmare. Drapac used the Ultravox Ti to great effect in 2014 recording 15 wins (including the OCBC Cycle Singapore Criterium) and many more podiums in races around the world. In 2015, Drapac rider Wouter Wippert steered the Ultravox to its first ever UCI WorldTour victory when he triumphed in Stage 6 of the Tour Down Under in January as well as some podiums in the recent Tour Of California.
The unique ride feel of a SwiftCarbon frame should instil complete confidence in the rider. It’s a sensation that comes from being totally relaxed and comfortable on the bike. When a bike is predictable yet agile, stiff under power yet damps out road buzz, with spot-on fit for its intended purpose, that rider feels utterly at home on it. A relaxed rider is an efficient rider, and an efficient rider is a faster rider. Our bikes have a signature look, standing out in the bunch while remaining understated. A SwiftCarbon bike looks like a SwiftCarbon bike, whether it’s a road racer, TT bike or MTB. But the key element is, and always will be, the ride.

Don’t be another face in the crowd with yet another Pinarello/Specialised/Trek …..with its good looks, race ready performance and reasonable price tag, the SwiftCarbon is definitely worth a look.
