REACTO TEAM-E tested by Cyclist

Since its launch last summer, the REACTO TEAM-E has been massively popular with the international cycling press and has been able to win a substantial number of tests and awards as well as achieve multiple 10 out of 10 scores. UK cycling magazine and website Cyclist is the latest publication to have a closer look at our top-of-the-range aero machine.  

The test team was able to ride the bike over an extensive period and were impressed with the acceleration and the fact that ‘it holds speed superbly’. Furthermore, they pointed out the ‘effective power transfer’, the attention to detail and amount of ‘nice touches’, like the included Shimano power meter and the DISC COOLER heat sinks.

‘If speed is what matters most, the Reacto is certainly worth a look.’


  • A cutout in the seatpost aids flex and comfort, with space for an integrated rear light
