Pace Cycles Launch Their New RC529 Enduro Steel Hardtail.

Hot on the heels of their recently released RC429, Pace Cycles have launched their enduro steel hardtail weapon in the form of the RC529.

Pace’s RC529 gets a steeper seat tube, slacker head angle, increased tyre clearance and a shorter seat tube to boot. Reynolds and Pace steel combine in this enduro hardtail offering.

Whilst the RC429 could be a gravel machine, bikepacking stalwart of a trail slayer, the RC529 is very much a different beast, with steep and tasty being it’s preferred menu items. Reynolds 853 steel combines with Pace Cro-Mo for a full steel is real experience. The bike is designed around a 140-150mm fork.
