Princess Sovereign

The Princess is the epitome of the classic English cycling tradition. Its timeless looks and upright riding position hearkens back to a simpler time of relaxed trips into town, tranquil jaunts into the countryside and an altogether more peaceful style of cycling.

A sense of refinement and elegance runs through every aspect of the Princess. It is fitted with a combination of beautifully enamelled, hand-lined mudguards and rear skirtguards to keep you dry whilst preventing any mishaps as you glide through your surroundings. Also included is a full chaincase, which protects you from any unsightly grease marks and reduces any maintenance your bicycle may need. The Princess therefore represents the perfect marriage of beauty and practicality, making owning and riding this cycle the utmost pleasure.

You have the choice of two distinct models: the Classic with reliable 3 speed hub gears for a simpler and lighter bicycle, or the Princess Sovereign, with the full complement of 5 wide-ratio hub gears, a handy frame-fitted lock, a versatile rear luggage rack and a front dynamo headlamp that never needs batteries.

The styling of the Princess has been used at Pashley since our very earliest days in the 1920s, and as a result it is plain to see that the design has stood the test of time. The combination of this classic reliability with hand-built quality and the very best modern components makes the Princess an unrivalled cycling experience that will charm you with years of comfort, dependability and joy.

Sonnet

Bliss

Main-sonnet-bliss-blue450x450

Sonnet Bliss

Just like our classic Princess, the Sonnet hearkens back to the early days of cycling, when elegance and pleasure took precedent over speed or competition. With the Sonnet, we have taken this tradition to celebrate our roots in the 1920s and 30s - the beautiful two-tone colour schemes are a nod to the inimitable style of this period. Such a unique look combines with the beauty of our curved frame design to make the Sonnet the eye-catching pinnacle of cycling chic.

Only the very best will do for such a wonderful aesthetic, and this is reflected in the high end components fitted by our team of committed craftsmen. The Brooks leather saddle has springs to ease your journey and over time becomes shaped to your form, whilst the classic wicker basket is perfect for trips to the shops or even your daily commute.

There are two distinct versions of the Sonnet to meet your exacting needs: The Pure is the simpler and lighter model, with reliable 3 speed hub gears that are perfect for everyday riding, whereas the Sonnet Bliss comes fully-equipped with luxuries such as 5 seed hub gears for all terrains, a handy built-in lock and a front dynamo headlamp to keep you safe at night without the need for batteries. Whichever you choose, the Sonnet is the embodiment of the refinement and class of a bygone age, and will transport you to a world of uncomplicated riding pleasure that is so very rare in our hectic modern world.

Poppy

Main-poppy-blue450x450

Pashley Poppy

The Poppy exudes an elegant simplicity that turns heads wherever it takes you. Inspired by the colours of an English country garden in the height of summer, the choice of Blush Pink or Pastel Blue paintwork only adds to the beauty of the classic curved frame, letting you glide gently through your surroundings in a comfortable upright position.

It is the subtle details that really complete the Poppy experience, from our soft touch cork grips to the hand-made Brooks leather saddle that gradually forms to your shape for true support. The Poppy is not just a pretty face, however, and is suited to both short hops around town and longer weekend jaunts into the countryside. The hub brakes ensure powerful stopping in all weathers, the lightweight 3 speed hub gears let you tackle hills while still keeping a good pace around the city, and the gorgeous cream Schwalbe tyres resist punctures to give you uninterrupted riding pleasure.

Indeed, the joy of cycling is at the very heart of what makes the Poppy a wonderful companion for life, an eye-catching bicycle that lets you explore in comfort, style and the pace of a bygone era.

Penny

Main-penny-green450x450

Penny

From the very first time you set eyes on the Penny you know that it is a wholly unique bicycle. The flowing multi-tube frame, inspired by our traditional ladies town cycles, exudes beauty and elegance, and the choice of subtle matte paintwork adds an understated beauty that complements its unrivalled stylings.

The Penny is designed specifically for comfort and versatility, and this is reflected in the choice components we have selected. The hand-made Brooks leather saddle gradually shapes to your form, becoming a truly custom product and offering the quality support of over 100 years of manufacturing experience.

For more rural rides, the Sturmey Archer hub brakes and gears are sealed off from the elements and perform reliably in all conditions, whilst the full length mudguards keep you clean and splash-free whatever the weather. All this makes the Penny a refined alternative to the modern hybrid bicycle, combining Pashley’s traditional values with the very best contemporary design and componentry.

Aurora

Main-aurora450x450

Pashley Aurora

The Aurora is a hugely versatile and unique ladies bicycle, offering a dynamic ride that is suited to all sorts of pursuits. The stunning mixte style frame is constructed from legendary Reynolds 531 tubing that is at once lightweight and stiff, built completely by hand to offer a swift yet elegant riding position.

This sense of refinement is completed by the classic Old English White paintwork that carries with it an understated beauty that complements the rich honey colour of the Brooks B17S saddle, made by hand only thirty miles from our factory. As head-turning as the Aurora may be, it also excels in the choice components it is graced with. The 8 speed Shimano Alfine hub gears allow you to tackle even the very steepest of hills whilst requiring little maintenance, and the narrow Mavic alloy rims with Panaracer puncture protected tyres give you the chance to ride at speed without unwelcome interruption.

Whether in busy city traffic, on winding country lanes or anything in between, the Aurora is a true all-rounder that can stand up to the rigours of modern life without losing the elegance and reliability for which Pashley’s bicycles are renowned.

Britannia

Main-britannia-red450x450

Britannia

Celebrate all that is best about our green and pleasant land with the Britannia, our tribute to our proud British heritage. Available in a range of patriotic colours, it is a fun and beautiful way to explore the countryside on weekend adventures or even just nip around town, filling the classic wicker basket with your shopping as you go.

In true British fashion, the Britannia is suited to all sorts of weather, with the chainguard and mudguards keeping you clean and looking your best, whilst the reliable hub brakes and gears are effective no matter what the conditions. Based upon the model we have produced from our very earliest days in the 1920s, the curved frame is coupled with a classic sweeping handlebar to give you an elegant upright seated position that lets you glide along through the countryside in comfort. This comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of a hand-made Brooks B66S saddle - made only thirty miles from our factory here in Stratford-upon-Avon - which gradually shapes to your form to become a truly customised and supportive seat. A front dynamo headlamp completes this luxurious lineup, never needing batteries to keep you safe at night.

All this is brought together with our long-earned experience and British craftsmanship, making the Britannia a gorgeous and reliable bicycle equipped to be a lifelong companion.
