Cotic Escapade 105/hydro

by 0

Affordable hydraulic disc-braked ‘cross builds are becoming a reality now that Shimano has extended its hydraulic STi lever technology to the mid-range 105 groupset.
Sheffield-based brand Cotic has just released details of its 105 Escapade, with full 5800 series groupset, RS685 STis and R785 calipers, which comes in at £1,600. As Cotic says, 105 is the groupset the Escapade has been waiting for – it’s a versatile and hugely fun bike, that’s as good off-road as it is on, and we reckon that hydraulic brakes will make it even better.

It might be mid range but it doesn’t half look spendy…

Swap the weekday slicks for weekend knobblies and you’re good to adventure
