The Giro is Avanti’s all round commuter, city bike and tourer frame. The women’s bikes feature slightly different geometry.
The F2 model features a couple of upgrades from the F1 model to make it faster and safer. These include a 24 speed groupset for more management and speed and an upgrade to disc brakes to improve control and stopping.
This bike so instantly presents itself as something you could take on your first (or tenth) sportive, and equally, have some serious fun with at the weekends. If you’re looking for a second bike for bad-weather days, this needs to be on your shortlist.
