Who is this bike for?
Roadies who want a pure tarmac machine designed for high speed on road over any distance. Race bikes are designed and built to be as light as possible, so expect light frames and overall bike weight to be impressively low. The best road racing bikes are reactive and fast handling – they should be nimble and agile. This is ideal for racing purposes: cutting through a crowded pack of riders, but also for fun, fast rides in the country with your cycling buddies.
About the Bike
Introducing the Pinnacle Laterite. Features and details that have given the Pinnacle Dolomite its coveted and award winning name can be found all over the Laterite. The design, which is ideal for the UK conditions see's all the cabling hidden in the frame out of harm’s way. A threaded bottom bracket means easy maintenance and mudguard fittings mean dry and clean kit all year round. Combined with performance enhancing features including a carbon bladed fork and low overall weight which the Laterite punches well above. Comfort is not forgotten with an ergonomic handlebar shape, thick comfort bar tape and geometry that is also borrowed from its sibling to give a balanced riding position, somewhere between out and out race and up right sportive.
Looking for some performance but on a budget. Maybe your first introduction to road bikes, it could be an upgrade, or just a winter bike for those chilly mornings. Look no further than the Laterite 3, at under 10kg it has it all with a stiff 24mm axle chainset and Shimano's excellent 105 11 speed groupset. Finished off with high quality rubber from Schwalbe will all help get you down the road pretty quickly.
Super gear set for the price of the bike ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Super value for money. Excellent gear set for the price of the bike. It's got a nice smooth ride with the carbon forks reducing road vibration. The seat is a little hard but bearable. I recommend this bike to anyone wanting to get back or into road cycling.

Today, the Pinnacle name is seen as one of Britain’s most respected marques when it comes to efficient road, cyclo-cross, mountain and particularly hybrid and utility bikes. But necessity is the mother of invention and to begin with, Pinnacle started life with a very different goal in mind. “We did our first Pinnacle photo shoot in August 2006, launched the brand at the London Bike Show in September 2006, and the 2007 model year bikes were the very first Pinnacles available to the public.
