Forme Longcliffe 4 FE
Following the same philosophy as our gents models Forme offer an exclusive Feminine Ergo (FE) Longcliffe Series developed for both anatomic and ergonomic requirements ensuring a precise and stable ride.
Our Longcliffe FE models have a compact frame with a shorter top tube and longer steering tube supplied with narrower handlebars and wider saddles to accept the wider female pelvic area.
Your perfect introduction to serious road cycling. The Longcliffe 4.0 offers a carbon fibre fork built onto a lightweight aluminium 7005 frameset.
The Longcliffe series offers race performance and the perfect basis for training, fitness and commuting with comfort at the forefront of our minds. With SLightly shorter top tubes and longer head tubes the Longcliffe range is ideal for any endurance ride.
Aluminium is considered the most versatile of materials for a cyclist however this is only applicable if the appropriate geometry and material is applied, not to mention the best available equipment ensemble. We take care not to neglect the most important fundamentals of a bike.
The frame and wheelset should always be the priority for any rider purchasing a complete bicycle package. This is why on our entire Forme Road range we use AL7005 grade of tubing to our own custom geometry all handcrafted by Kinesis . This is partnered by the best available wheelsets for the price.
