The Escapade: Road, trails, gravel, commute, tour, adventure

The Escapade fits into your life, for work and fun. It will take you to the office, to the shops, on holiday, to the hills, on adventures, or just to that quiet place where you get some headspace.

Super versatile, the Escapade is a road bike without limitations. Disc brakes all round. Drop bars. Tyres big and floaty, or small and fast. Mudguards, panniers, bottle cages.

All Cotic Life Bikes have big clearances for big tyres. Sure you can speed it up on something like a 700x28c, but we supply the bikes with big volume 37c slicks. They roll really fast, but float over the potholes in the road and bumps in the trail.

Alongside this we have introduced the WTB Road Plus concept, using their fantastic 650b KOM i25 rims, and the WTB 650 x 47 tubeless tyres. There's the Horizon slick for smiles and miles, or the Byway semi-slick, for ducking down that forest path. Smaller rims with big volume tyres give a similar overall diameter to the more usual 700c road wheels, but comfort and grip are massively improved. The larger 47mm wide tyres running tubeless as low as 35 psi float over road imperfections and rough tracks with no weight penalty over the larger 700c wheels and smaller tyres.

New for 2018 is a flowing tapered head tube with integral headset, and two fork options: smooth riding alu steerer/carbon leg RB4 forks, or the full carbon RB5 which saves 200 grams. Both come with the latest 12x100 thru axle. Modern flat mount brake mounts front and rear complete the picture.

All the fittings for two bottles, rear rack, full mudguards are included, because why limit yourself and your bike to just one thing?


Complete bike options

Bikes start from (price unavailable) for the Silver build with 9spd drivetrain and Shimano cable discs, or for (price unavailable) we have the fabulous Gold level bikes based around Shimano's superb 105 11spd drivetrain and hydraulic brakes. Brake feel and modulation are superb. It's The Future.

Road Plus wheelsets using the super light WTB KOM i23 rims, double butted spokes, your choice of WTB 650 x 47 tubeless tyres are a +£200 upgrade for any Escapade bike.

Frame Options

For just £499 you could buy a frame with the RB4 fork and build your own dream machine.

Strip it all down and speed into the City. Load it all up and head off into the hills. Where will your Escapade take you?

What's New?

New for 2018 is a flowing tapered head tube with integral headset, and two fork options: smooth riding alu steerer/carbon leg RB4 forks, or the full carbon RB5 which saves 200 grams. Both come with the latest 12x100 thru axle. Modern flat mount brake mounts front and rear complete the picture.

Revised geometry on the 52cm (XS) and 54cm (S) size frames to make them a more proportional fit, with steeper seat angles to suit shorter legs better, and slacker head angles for reduced toe overlap.


Frame & Fork Specifications

Complete Bike Specifications

All our bikes are hand assembled to order here in Sheffield by Paul, Cy, Will or Richard. If there's anything on the spec you're not sure about, or don't need, give us a ring to discuss. We'd much rather leave something off you don't need and charge you a bit less than waste a perfectly good part you'll not use when we can put it on someone elses bike. Better for you, better for us, less waste, so better for everyone.

Geometry and Sizing Chart

The chart is a guide to frame size for the new Escapade:  Ultra Compact Geometry - Road  means that the frames are low and long. You'll probably need a 350mm seatpost due to the compact sizing. Note, the sloping top tube design needs to be taken into account if you're comparing seat tube size with other bikes. Drop us a line at size@cotic.co.uk and we'll be happy to discuss size and set up based on what you're riding at the moment.
