By Class

Browse bikes according to what you need it for - perfomance, recreation or utility. We group all of our products into these different use classes, but because bikes in particular, are pretty versatile, most of them straddle these classes. Use the filter below to account for your own balance of uses that you are looking for in a bike. Take your time to explore the combinations...

All our bikes come with one year's free servicing and two weeks free insurance!

Performance

Speed wins

Performance
 How well a person, machine, etc. does a piece of work or an activity.


Blue is the colour of speed at Cycle Heaven and the natural habitat of carbon fibre.  Bikes in this category address the need for the competitive edge, which means less weight and wind resistance and more speed. 5* performance bikes are the most specialised bikes that we sell, so expect them to be light and freakin fast, but not suitable for much else beyond pure riding. A lower rating makes it more adaptable, but at the cost of its potential for speed.

Rating:

5
Pure, no-compromise performance bikes – designed for competitive cycling. These are the lightest that can be had for a given budget. Aggressive geometry without any mudguard or luggage fittings beyond bottle cage mounts. Lycra is obligatory for such badass bikes.
4
Sports bikes – designed to balance maximum performance with other factors - such as: extra comfort, easier handling, mudguard clearance or the ability to carry light luggage - e.g. endurance road and cyclecross bikes. Lycra is still necessary.
3
Lightweight non-sports bikes that offer a blend of performance with some practicality. Town and country bikes. Lycra optional.
2
Practical upright bikes with a lighter twist and good for work and light leisure, but no lycra.
1
Upright, heavyweight and practical bikes that are going nowhere fast.
A true lycra-free zone.

Recreation

Jack of all Trades

Recreation
 Refreshment of one's mind or body after work through activity that amuses or stimulates.

Green is for getting out and re-creating yourself in the fresh air and sunshine. Products in this category are suitable for leisurely jaunts or long days in the saddle, sometimes challenging, but never too serious. Bikes score high in this class by being the best ‘jack of all trades’ - being both versatile, fun to ride and useful. If they do well in this class, they will be middling but not bad, in others. The best are good for commuting, day rides and a world tour.

5
Our most versatile bikes - and must have the following: wide ratio gears, for all manner of gradients, loaded or otherwise; the capacity to fit, or come ready-equipped with lots of equipment; high luggage capacity (i.e. front rack compatible); swift road and adequate rough-road performance; OR capable off-road and reasonable smooth-road performance.
4
Versatile and capable bikes with the ability to carry luggage, ride off road and maintain reasonable road performance. Must haves are: wide ratio gears and the ability to fit rack and mudguards.
3
A jack of all trades, but better at some than others – such as hybrids that offer reasonable all round performance but don’t push the envelope in any direction; or, sporty bikes with limiting factors such as a cyclecross bike with narrow ratio gears or road bikes with some luggage capacity but only thin tyres.
2
Bikes that are good for a primary and a secondary use, such as a road bike that takes mudguards for winter training. 
1
Highly adapted bikes for just one use – e.g. speed or load carrying only.

Utility

Utility = Useful

Utility
 The state of being useful, profitable, or beneficial.


Orange is the colour of the useful stuff. Bikes in this category cater to your everyday needs for transport. The qualities we look for in products of this category are ease of use, durability and reliability. Built for short distance, but high frequency use, 5* utility bikes are practical and low maintenance; can be ridden in everyday clothing; come with lots of equipment and can carry heavy loads. The simplest measure for utility bikes is how much equipment they have.

Rating:

5
Five star utility bikes simply must be heavy duty, with hub gears and fully equipped to the nth degree. A bomproof pick-up truck rather than a sports car.
4
All of these these bikes feature a very high level of equipment and can come with with hub or derailleur gears. Likely to be a bit lighter and livelier to ride than 5* utilities.
3
These bikes are half way practical – with fat-ish tyres and either come equipped, or easily equipped with rack and mudguards.
2
These are sporty bikes that will have the ability to ‘sport’ some mudguards at the very least, so they’ll get you to work pretty tidily.
1
These are not practical bikes, so go off and have some fun, burn off the miles and the calories.
