It was great to catch up with Nicola Juniper (3 Times National Road Race Series Champion) today, and the handover of some more Redchilli FR2 frames. Exciting times ahead....

How do you improve upon perfection? That was the task in hand for our engineers when asked to start work on our 2018 REDCHILLI FR1. Our current FR1 has won praise from many of our customers, including Ex. US National Champion, Frank Kratzer, who said "This bike (FR1) is the best bike I have ever owned." So, a tough ask is in order for 2018 FR1, but, we feel we have achieved our objectives. Our new 2018 FR1 should be ready to order from mid-September 2017.

Like its predecessor, 2018 FR1 will be constructed from the finest Torayca T700/T800 Uni-Directional High Modulus Carbon. It's core objective? To bring you race sharp handling, speed and lightness. We will bring you further details in due course, but for now, here's a sneak-peek to wet your appetite.

Our current SR8 sportive frameset has been a very popular frame, and so our 2018 SR8 has a hard act to follow. Our 2018 SR8 will feature Endurance Geometry, clearance for 28mm tyres and a "back to basics" BSA bottom bracket. 2018 SR8 is still very much on the drawing board but here's a spy-shot to give you an idea as to how it's shaping up.

A great performance from Redchilli Bikes' Brand Ambassador, Genevive Whitson (Isorex Ladies Cycling Team, Belgium) finishing in 11th at the British Cycling Curlew Cup National Women's Race Series. Gen told us "Proud of the Chilli (FR2) for going so well." And we're equally proud of you, Gen. Great result in a top class field.

With what seems to be in the a blink of an eye, the month of February is almost over and it's been a pretty hectic month here at Redchilli towers. With the release of 3 new frames; FR4, FR5 and TTR3, several bike builds to complete along with a number of new frames off to new owners across the UK and Europe, we are now getting ready for March.

So, what's in the pipeline for March? Well, more Redchilli bike builds are already in the book and we have some exciting news with regard our race tuned REDCHILLI FR2 frameset as it's back on the drawing board to bring you a complete new paint design. Many of you loved the existing design but it's now time to move on and bring you something a little more dynamic to reflect the fact that FR2 is indeed a pretty dynamic frame to ride. So, quite literally on the drawing board, here's a sneak peak as to how FR2 will look.

Saturday 28th January 2017
It's been a very busy week here at REDCHILLI towers with frames arriving and frames leaving to new Chilli owners. Thank you all.

We have more frames being despatched next week as well as bike builds to complete.
Next up; it's time to get some pictures taken of REDCHILLI FR4 and the (soon to arrive) REDCHILLI FR5 and REDCHILLI TTR3.

And then there's more; we will be adding a wider range of standard bike build options on our website to give you even more choice when deciding on your perfect Chilli. So if you're mulling over the idea of a new bike for 2017 - don't do anything until you have discussed what we can do for you, along with the value and quality that we are able to offer. And of course, spreading that Chilli love.....

REDCHILLI FR4 has arrived - and it is truly stunning. We will add pictures to our website and social media pages very soon and we may even bring you a video.... Along with all this excitement, we will also be adding some very impressive bike build options; all at our usual great value price points.

We are delighted to bring you the first pictures of our forthcoming REDCHILLI FR4 Super Light Frameset. These spy-shots will give you some idea as to how this stunning frame will look, though we will bring you better quality images as soon as the first frames arrive with us.

EPS Technology
REDCHILLI FR4 has been constructed by EPS Technology. So what is EPS, you all cry? Well, EPS (Expandable Polystyrene System) is a process that allows us to make a "one piece" carbon frame and this makes the frame stronger, lighter and more rigid.

The EPS Application
The carbon sheets are laminated around polystyrene forms and this ensures a perfectly smooth surface to the inside of the frame - hence greater strength and durability. During the pressure phase of production, the mold expands and with the addition of air pressure, this produces a controlled and indeed, optimised thickness of the carbon material throughout the entire frame. Once the production process is complete, the polystyrene mold is then removed.

What are the Benefits of EPS
The EPS process eliminates unnecessary materials while the compaction of the carbon layers is optimised, thus making it stronger and safer. This results in a carbon frame that is super light and super responsive, and one that decreases flex and so power transfer is greatly improved.

In simple terms, REDCHILLI FR4 will be a stunning frame and make for a sensational bike.

Difficult to believe we are in 2017 already. 2016 proved to be a year of stablity and steady growth for REDCHILLI and for that we have to say a huge THANK YOU to you, our valued customers.

So what's the plan for 2017? We have been extremely busy during the past few months and for January 2017 at least, we will be launching 3 New Framesets; FR4, FR5 and TTR3. Here's a quick introduction to each frame:

REDCHILLI FR4 will be our super light frame for those of you that prefer the road to point upwards. With the perfect blend of Torayca T700/T800 Uni-Directional High Modulus Carbon, this frame will give you expolosive power transfer to rip up those hills.

REDCHILLI FR5 is the perfect all round, balanced road race machine. Fast on the climbs, stable on the flats and comfort to boot, FR5 will be the ideal race machine for mixed terrain use. In fact, our brand ambassador, Genevieve Whitson (Team Isorex, Belgium) will be racing FR5 for 2017 during some high level races across Europe and the UK. The perfect test therefore for the latest REDCHILLI.

REDCHILLI TTR3 is our new 2017 Time Trial machine. Designed to be as slippery as possible and provide maximum aerodynamics, TTR3 will provide superb stability and stunning performance, helping you to go faster for longer.

Full details of all our new frames will be online towards the end of January.

2017 Redchilli TT Frameset.

We are delighted to announce that our new 2017 REDCHILLI TT frameset will soon be ready to order.

REDCHILLI TTR promises to be a stunning bike, offering your precision and speed. Further details will be released very soon though for now, here's a spy shot to show how REDCHILLI TTR is shaping up.

We hope you like.

Custom RedChilli Framesets.

With all of our frames, customer specific designs are welcome from cycle teams, clubs, organisations and indeed, individual customers.

Here we have (on the drawing board) designed a REDCHILLI FR1 of which will be finished in a matte carbon marble effect with gloss black decals. We think this frame looks absolutely stunning. So much so, that we may even release this as a production model for 2017.

RedChilli Bikes are delighted to announce (and introduce) our brand ambassador; Genevieve Whitson.
