To perform to the best of your ability, you need equipment of the highest quality. At Verenti we've been working tirelessly to design a range to fit that brief exactly; high performance bikes that match your passion and commitment, whether for day to day riding or tough weekend training sessions.
The Belief is designed to offer a confident and assured ride. The frame is manufactured from lightweight 7005 aluminium alloy tubing with smooth welds at all the joins. The finish is soft white with stylish, understated decals. The frame features a tapered head tube (1 1/8 – 1.5) and a matching tapered fork in Uni-Directional carbon. These fit seamlessly together to offer faultless cornering and handling performance. The Belief features internally routed gear cabling, BSA bottom bracket, twin bottle cage mounts and a replaceable rear dropout.
The Belief is fitted with quality components from leading brands such as Shimano, FSA and 4ZA. It is equipped with Shimano Tiagra 10spd STI levers and mechs for fast, reliable shifting and a compact FSA Omega chainset (50-34t). Coupled with a wide range cassette (12-28t) the drivetrain is ideal for speed work or tackling a sportive with hillier climbs.
The Belief features a reliable and robust Alex DC19 wheelset with smooth sealed hubs and Kenda Koncept 23c tyres. This combination gives great stability, grip and confidence whether at speed or cornering. 4ZA components (bars, stem, saddle, and seat post) feature in all the contact points and provide the quality finishing touches to an outstanding package.
Each Verenti Belief is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle’s team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition.

Cyclists are passionate about their sport and equally as passionate about the bikes they ride. In few sports do participants take such pride, interest and involvement in their equipment, but to a cyclist a bike is more than just the right tool for the job, it is an extension of them and reflects their individual personality. Those of us who have worked to create Verenti understand this. We're cyclists too...
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts. When you place an order for a bike, we ask for your height and inside leg measurements. Our team of qualified mechanics will check your measurements against the size chart to make sure that the size you choose will fit you correctly.

The Verenti is the entry-level bike from online retailer Wiggle. At the top end of our price bracket here, it features some of the nicest details and slightly higher-quality componentry than most of the bikes on test. The frame is aluminium and features a carbon fork. The tapered headtube (it's fatter at the bottom) is designed to offer greater stiffness and more assured handling. The gear cables (although not the brake cables) are routed inside the downtube. Shimano Tiagra gearing is also a step up from the Sora kit on most of the Shimano-equipped bikes here. 4ZA (pronounced 'Forza') finishing kit is used throughout.
The Belief delivers one of the smoothest, stiffest and yet most compliant rides on test. Everything gels to produce a stiff, quick bike that positively begs you to lay the power down, to change up a gear and smash it even harder. And that feeling doesn't end when you hit a hill. A rolling section of our test route with a series of 35mph descents and 10 per cent inclines proves the perfect playground - once downhill momentum wanes, all that's required is a snick down to a slightly easier gear and a stamp on the pedals. It's just as adept in lower gears on longer climbs. Seated climbing with hands on top of the bars is something you could do all day. The box-fresh brakes on our bike require some bedding in, with the pads feeling a little grabby initially. But within 40 minutes they are gripping the 4ZA rims with more progressive and predictable stopping power. The Tiagra gears number 20 and are quite well spaced, with a big enough top gear for kamikaze downhills and a small enough (28-tooth) bottom end for climbing. But finesse is required on the downshifts to ensure the gear slots home. Hundred-mile comfort should be taken as a given, and if all you fancy is a 10-mile blast, this bike excels at shorter distances, too.
