COMMENCAL FCB ESSENTIAL DARK SLATE
Road, Urban, Gravel... Whether on tarmac or gravel, cycling is above all a state of mind. It can be functional at the expense of everything else. Or it can just be classy. Our FCB (Fast City Bike) has clearly chosen its side.
About the FCB ESSENTIAL
In this new matte Dark Slate paint, the FCB is just perfect. It blends in with all environments, as much in the city as in the forest. And if you take a closer look, you'll see that this bike doesn't just look good, there are some high-end components on this new ESSENTIAL model.
The FCB makes the most of every pedal stroke. It's made with the urban world in mind, but nothing stops it from being capable on paths and rolling terrain. It has the most suitable components for exactly that:
- A 640mm handlebar makes it comfortable for riding both in town and on rougher roads.
- Efficient and powerful SRAM Level TLM brakes.
- The SPANK Wing 22 wheels are stiff and precise.
- 45mm MAXXIS RAMBLER tyres offer incredible grip and comfort thanks to their large volume.
- A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with 11-50t gears gives endless possibilities.
From the city to country lanes, this FCB ESSENTIAL can do it all.
