700 was opened in the summer of 2011 with one goal in mind; helping all road riders from all aspects of the sport furnish their passion with all the advice and equipment they may need. At 700 we believe that whether you are in it to win or simply to enjoy the sport, everything starts with fit and to this end offer bike fitting services to help you optimise your position on the bike,  to minimise the risk of injury and to get the best performance and comfort from your riding. 

At 700 we are looking to present the products we stock in their best light; each run of items is given its own space and is never pushed into a corner. Online each product where appropriate is given it’s own in-depth description written by us and photographed in order to best display it’s characteristics and to give you a feeling of what the product would be like if you were to actually touch it. We have tried very hard to pick our brands and products carefully in order to keep our range of products limited to those which firstly fulfill their purpose superbly and secondly offer what we feel is the best choice at each price point. Everything you find on our shelves will have been endorsed by one or another of us and it would not have made it there if we were unable to see its value.

We feel that every customer should have the same exceptional level of service; we want you to be able to draw from our many years of experience both in the bicycle industry and out on the road. Between us we ride thousands of miles every week, some of us as endurance or pleasure riders and others of us who enjoy racing and pushing our physical limits. We all expect our kit to echo our needs and style. Invariably you will be able to find a kindred spirit at 700; somebody who rides in a similar fashion and finds an analogous value in their cycling. Whether looking for your first road bike or seeking some serious hardware to maximise your competitive edge we want you to feel as if you have been given the best advice throughout your purchase and that you have ended up with a bike that suits your specific requirements.

Recent seasons have seen a growing desire for individuality and custom products and we understand that dream bikes should be as individual as you; from geometry to finish. To this end we are continually broadening our range to include more niche brands like Nevi Titanium, Alchemy and Sarto in order to bring you fully customisable options when it comes to your hardware. 

If you are looking to broaden your cycling experience we have an associated cycling club with a diverse spectrum of riders and abilities and 700 run numerous cycling holidays and training camps in the Costa Blanca during the year, so you can experience new roads, fantastic climbs and stunning scenery, fully guided and supported.

Ashmei : Outperforming the Best

ashmei aim to produce the very best performance cycling apparel and they do this with a slightly different approach to their Research and Development.
Starting with a blank canvas, ashmei consider the specific requirements for any given piece - be that base layers, gloves, jerseys or jackets - based on the activity and climates involved. They carefully select the correct blend and proportion of fibres to create a unique and bespoke material to fulfil the remit. Real comfort comes from the blend : get it slightly wrong and the rider is too hot, cold, damp or wet.
 
The approach is one refined from 25 years designing sportswear and it is evident in every detail of every piece in the range - it allows ashmei to engineer their version of the ultimate performance product. While price is always a consideration; ashmei  do not focus on key price points or seasonal collections; rather they create the right product in understated, classic styles that will stand the test of time, both aesthetically and functionally.
 
Like an increasing number of brands, ashmei are driven by the desire to stabilise body temperature during excercise. Ultimately this approach renders the rider more comfortable but also frees up energy for muscles that would otherwise be invested in thermoregulation; one of the key draws on energy reserves of the body. To achieve this, ashmei use a proprietary blend of Merino wool and Carbon Fibres. Merino is an environmentally friendly and renewable resource. It is naturally antibacterial, thermoregulatory and non-itchy and as such requires no additional chemical treatments. ashmei augment the natural properties of the wool with Carbon fibres that further enhance the breathability and temperature regulation of their garments. 
 
By evaluating every component from fibre upwards and looking for better solutions to increase comfort and performance, ashmei create products that benefit the wearer, rather than gimmicks, untruths and pointless features. The resulting range is concise making purchasing decisions relatively simple and their focus on the right product rather than a trendy, seasonal one, means you'll be current, season after season.
For us, the asmei offering complements our current range of clothing from the likes of Q36.5. Their more relaxed fit and simple, classic styling of the Merino pieces will appeal to those who ride their own ride and who prefer the less 'pro' countenance. At the same time, ashmei will deliver countless performance benefits for those looking to push themselves.
