Almost 12 months ago, Pace Cycles released its first teasers for an all-new carbon full-suspension frame, now pricing and pre-order details have been revealed.
The Pace RC295 will be the first-ever carbon fibre frame from the UK based bike builder, and it’s first full-suspension bike for a few years. The RC295 is said to be the ‘highest performance Pace ever’ and will run 135mm of rear-wheel travel and 29in wheels front and rear.
Pace has designed the RC295 with a unique free-floating suspension system and metric shock combined with a modern low and long geometry to keep it up to date. The RC295 will be available in 3 sizes from M-XL with reach numbers sitting on the very generous end of long. The shortest bike in the range has a reach of 466mm while the XL boasts a spacious 503mm reach.
When Pace first announced it was working on a carbon full suspension frame we imagined that the finished product would be priced out of most riders budget and sit among the superbikes of the mountain bike world, but we’ve been very surprised with the final launch pricing.
The complete and full carbon frame, with custom carbon frame protector, DT Swiss rear axle, Hope seat post clamp and a factory-tuned RockShox Deluxe RT3 rear shock is priced at £1899, which is considerably less than we imagined it would cost. That price is the UK RRP with VAT included but doesn’t include shipping costs (Available Worldwide).
Pace have updated their website with more details of the Pace RC295 and will begin pre-orders in November with delivery expected to happen in December, just in time for Christmas.

It’s coming up to a year since we revealed our new prototype Pace RC295 and since then we’ve been putting in the hard miles, sweating the details and buffing the design for production. And now we’re ready- tooled up and fired up with the first production frame out of the mould and ready for assembly with our latest cool 2020 build kits. Like our other framesets the RC295 will now be available as an Ultimate or Select Rolling Chassis, choice of two Factory Ultimate and Select complete bike builds (as well as a Custom Build Option) and of course a Frame only option but within that frame kit we thought that a premium product like this should come fully loaded.
So we’ve equipped our Pace frame with the superb Rockshox Deluxe RT3 factory tuned to compliment the kinematics of the ‘295 with the shock also featuring an Offset Bushing to allow adjustment of the bikes ride height and compliment your choice of 29er or 27.5”+ rear wheel. The frame also comes equipped with a top drawer finishing kit- Thru Axle from DTSwiss, Seatclamp from Hope and a complete spare Pace Gear Hanger Kit.
For protection we’re also including a full size carbon fibre frame protector for the underside of the mainframe custom moulded by Rockguardz, plus a pair of Armour Tubes to protect the cables and hoses beneath the BB.
And if you think this sounds like a great quality package then consider this- the full carbon RC295 equipped with all these premium brands will cost just £1899… thats right not just a great spec’ but top value too! We’ll soon be able to confirm availability and delivery dates for the three frame sizes (M, L and XL) as well as full detailed spec’ of the Ultimate and Select model Rolling Chassis and Bike Builds.
Frame price of £1899. Price quoted includes UK VAT but excludes delivery (available Worldwide). Pre-Order available in November with delivery in December.Pace Cycles
