RERE means “to flow” in Maori. RERE is a FULL-AERO frame designed to cheat the wind. With Michael’s experience in designing a number of Aerodynamic Road and Time Trial/Triathlon rigs, the RERE is the culmination of knowledge and experience in this very specific genre of bikes. Drag (air resistance) is the one thing that all cyclist battle against and the RERE has been designed to slice through the air with Aerodynamic profiles applied to the all exposed surfaces and rigorously tested at Auckland University Wind Tunnel across a wide range of Yaw on both drive and non-drive sides.

RERE

At CHAPTER2 we believe that cycling is one of the purest sports. Just you, your bike and a healthy appetite for adventure and suffering.

RERE means “to flow” in Maori. RERE is a FULL-AERO frame designed to cheat the wind. With Michael’s experience in designing a number of Aerodynamic Road and Time Trial/Triathlon rigs, the RERE is the culmination of knowledge and experience in this very specific genre of bikes. Drag (air resistance) is the one thing that all cyclist battle against and the RERE has been designed to slice through the air with Aerodynamic profiles applied to the all exposed surfaces and rigorously tested at Auckland University Wind Tunnel across a wide range of Yaw on both drive and non-drive sides.

The RERE has been designed with quality of ride in mind, and that means a well-balanced geometry, allowance for wider format tires and a carefully engineered Toray® carbon lay-up schedule throughout to deliver an engaging ride, letting you push beyond your limits and explore the road less travelled.

As with any new frame design project, the geometry is the foundation to an awesome ride. Using an extensive database of ergonomic data we were able to map out the ideal geometry that matches both the seasoned pro and weekend warrior. The RERE’s geometry has a linear stack and reach correlation from XS all the way to XL just like the human body.

Married to this balanced geometry is a beautifully designed aerodynamic form factor that accelerates the whole experience, employing vibration dampening “kinked” chainstays and directional high tensile carbon in the BB and head tube areas for engineered compliance, power transfer and steering “like it’s on rails”.

Whilst the RERE has been designed to be an aerodynamic race machine, no short cuts have been taken to ensure that overall sensation is silky smooth with climbing traits expected of a pro level rig. The fork crown has been seamlessly sculpted to the aero fork leg and designed to be used with aerodynamically superior Direct Mount brakes that also offer more tire clearance.

We know that your bike is an extension of your lifestyle, as it is ours. And we know how important it is to have bragging rights to the coolest looking kit on your local bunch ride/race. CHAPTER2 bikes come in two different collections. The ESSENTIAL Collection is the tried and tested but still uniquely CHAPTER2 Matt + Gloss Black. The LIMITED Edition changes every 6-8 months and is produced in limited quantities only. Once sold out The LIMITED Edition design, will never be produced again. This gives you the opportunity to own a unique design statement and stand out from the crowd.

The whole package is finished off with a compliant dual orientation (TT/Tri) carbon seatpost, concealed integrated seatclamp, internal cabling and a matching stem and headset to create an elegant yet exhilarating ride.

If you want the total package, we also offer the MANA Bar + Stem system for precision steering and engineered compliance in a form factor that slices through the air.

PAEMAUNGA - MOUNTAIN RANGE

The CHAPTER2 pattern symbolises “The Road Less Travelled”. The story begins with the pattern that starts this design. ‘The Raranga’ on both ends symbolises that this ties into the land and that the land is woven into the fabric of the people.

The Mangopare Kowhaiwhai comes next. This shows direction and travel just like the hammer head shark in which this pattern is inspired by. It symbolises that travel is about moving forward and exploring new places.

The Paemaunga element that sits in three, symbolises a mountain range interlocking that with the “Kete o te wananga” element which symbolises knowledge and the acquisition of knowledge, together they show that the mountain range is a road that you have much to learn from and that it is the road less travelled. The multiple Kowhaiwhai elements in the centre symbolises the rivers and the diversity of the New Zealand terrain and finally the centre piece Kowhaiwhai symbolises the unity and respect between the land and its people.
