Fast, fun and versatile is what the HYB range of leisure and fitness hybrids is all about. Frames take inspiration from our SLR road range, but with an extra bit of stability baked in. Puncture-protected 35mm tyres balance low rolling resistance with a plush ride and offer enough grip for light off-roading too. Our new one-piece integrated handlebar and stem adds a clean aesthetic to the look and feel, while the ergonomic grips help to reduce numbness and long ride discomfort.Combining a triple-butted 6061 Aluminium frame and full carbon tapered fork, the HYB 8.8 is a lightweight and agile machine. A 1X10 Shimano Deore drivetrain borrows MTB technology meaning you only need one shifter up front, and with a wide range 11-46 tooth cassette at the rear and a single 44 tooth chainring at the front you have plenty of options for those steep ascents and fast flats.As well as the groupset, Shimano also provide their MT200 hydraulic disc brakes which give powerful, consistent stopping power in all weather conditions. Schwalbe Citizen 35mm tyres with Kevlar (K-Guard) puncture protection deals with rough roads and gravel trails without any difficulties.Finishing the package is our stylish new HYB 1 piece handlebar and stem, with soft-touch, adjustable grips allowing you to fine-tune your hand position for maximum comfort and control.Key Features:Triple butted 6061 X7 Aluminium frame and full carbon tapered fork,Mudguard and pannier rack mounts make year-round riding and commuting practical,Wide range 1X gears cover off all-terrain with simple-shifting,1 Piece bar and stem with adjustable ergonomic grips.
