The Viking Eclipse Road Bike is an ideal road bike for anyone who wants to discover the joys of the road, the Viking Eclipse is an affordable and durable road bike, with a high-tensile steel frame and Shimano 14 speed drivetrain. The frame is strong, sturdy, and long-lasting, and the mudguard clearance and bottle bosses make it ideal for charity rides, winter training, or commuting.
The Shimano 14 speed drivetrain gives you plenty of speed and power right when you need it, whether climbing hills, coasting along country roads, or speeding past the finish line, and the alloy side-pull brakes provide smooth and precise stopping. The 700C alloy double-wall wheels are perfectly matched with road tyres that will eat up the miles, and the Active road saddle and black handlebar tape complete the classic lines of the Eclipse.

The Viking bicycle company was founded in 1908 by Alfred Victor Davies in Wolverhampton Road. The original company closed in 1967. It was then bought by two Americans who founded Viking Cycles as a bicycle assembler based in Derry. But it soon encountered financial problems and in 1981 Merseyside Council considered buying the company. In 2001 it was bought by Avocet Sports, based in Manchester and was registered to them. Viking bicycles now encompass a wide range of bicycles including e-bikes, road bikes and folding bikes geared for urban riding.
