“The Guileless High-Flyer”


 

New player in the market Rapidino is looking to make big waves with the introduction of their top flight carbon framed Ornitho. While their range is rapidly expanding, their focus is on bikes that give the rider good value for their market segment price.

The Ornitho carbon frame is made from carbon composite. No real surprises here. Carbon fiber is now a known engineering material when it comes to bicycle frames and Rapidino has taken advantage of that fact from their manufacturing partner. The T-700 carbon used in this frame is tried and tested, and does the job capably well. The frame design follows traditional thought. No swoopy curved tubes and shapes here. Everything is functional and serves a purpose.

The groupset is Shimano’s Ultegra, very capable, very reliable and only 200 grams heavier than Dura Ace. Definitely no upgrading require. The Mavic Ksyrium Elite S wheels are another nice touch, and perfectly complement the Ultegra groupset. Situated right in the middle of the Mavic road wheel range, these wheels are extremely capable, and will serve even race duties with aplomb. If you’re looking for an all rounder, a change of tyres might be in order, but the Maxxis Courchevals supplied will serve for most purposes except deadly fast criteriums.

If you’re a road rider looking to upgrade your current ride, the Ornitho should be on your short list. While Rapidino may not have the big brand name recognition, or the palmares of the bigger brands, a solid, reliable bike is always to be welcomed.
