Cooper Bikes, the two-wheel division of the Cooper Car Company, has announced a new range of bikes, due for release this autumn.
The brand was launched at last October's Cycle Show in London and has since enjoyed success with its retro-styled range. The British company's bikes have been exported to 26 countries since launch, and are available from stockists in the USA, China, Japan and Australia.
All of the new models take their name from motor racing tracks on which Cooper cars used to compete.
"With this new line we wanted to introduce a wider range of people to Cooper Bikes," said Cooper chairman Mike Cooper.
T250 Aintree in particular is our first unisex bike, which we hope will
help integrate us into the female market. Also the Aintree and
Zandvoort have five gears and three gears respectively so combine sporty
performance with comfortable urban riding."
The Aintree is Cooper's first foray into the 'unisex' market, and features five gears. Frame is made of Reynolds 531 steel and comes with black Brooks saddle.
