The Insight’s frame is designed for all-round performance and comfort. A good selection of spacers allow for plenty of adjustment between an upright position, for endurance riding and a lower more performance position, for shorter faster rides.
This available adjustment along with the quality of the full carbon frameset make the Insight 0.4 the perfect platform to upgrade from as you progress.
The frame is constructed using 24Ton hi-modulus carbon fibre. This creates a light but stiff frameset which also dampens vibrations from the road to provide a more comfortable ride. A carbon fork, with alloy steerer, also helps to reduce road buzz, without any compromise to handling.
With 50/34 tooth chainrings on the front and a 12-27 tooth cassette on the rear, the Insight has a wide enough range of gears to tackle any terrain.
The Shimano Sora groupset is well known for its performance and durability making it the perfect choice for the Insight.
The Sora shifters have the same dual control setup as the top end Shimano groupsets and also feature an optical window to show which gear you have selected. Shifting is precise and consistent, right the way through the 9 speed cassette.
Dual pivot brake callipers provide excellent braking power, with angle adjustable pads to ensure perfect pad alignment. A quick release aids installation and removal of wheels, for transportation or puncture repairs on the go.
With its two piece hollow axle design, the Sora chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell provides increased stiffness and bearing life, over standard cartridge units.
The Insight is fitted with a lightweight but durable 4ZA wheelset with Shimano sealed bearing hubs. These are fitted with a pair of Continental Grand Prix 700x23c tyres with Poly-X densely woven anti puncture breaker.
Each Verenti bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size guide tab above.

About the Verenti brand
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...
The size chart below will get you on the right size bike. Experienced riders may also wish to refer to the geometry chart for more detail.
Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Also I saw in a previous answer that 25c is the maximum... can you confirm that 28c won't fit? I tried testing some 28c from a friend and they seem to fit (I couldn't test properly as they were wheels with disk brakes). Or is there a limitation from the rim (Alex Race 28)?
The Schwalbe Durano Plus Performance Folding Road Tyre would be a good alternative, at a slightly cheaper price range.
