Driving the Technique forward is a Shimano Claris drivetrain. The 2x8 drivetrain consists of Claris shifters and derailleurs, with an 11-28t cassette. Up front is a Suntour chainset with a compact chainring setup. All these working together offer the classic Shimano indexing that we all know and love.
Keeping the Technique rolling is a pair of Alex R500 double walled 32h alloy rims laced up to a set of Joytech alloy hubs, these are then wrapped in a set of Continental Ultra Sport II tyres. Overall these are a fast rolling, light-weight wheelset with the tyres offering maximum grip allowing you can pace your way through the streets and roads at a steady speed.
Shimano Claris shifter/lever paired up with Tektro R312 dual pivot caliper brakes offer a brilliant braking performance allowing you to flow through the roads with confidence that you can stop when needed.
Finishing the Technique off is a alloy 75mm reach bar, a 3D forged stem, Single bolt alloy 27.2mm seatpost and a Cosine road specific saddle. A great, light-weight finishing kit to top the Technique off.

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.
