SEATTLE, Nov. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dragon Bicycles builds high-performance, custom-fit road bikes that are delivered 98% assembled, fully tuned, and RideReady straight out of the box - at a price far below market. How? First, an innovative online fitting tool uses a few ordinary measurements and riding preferences to create a custom-fit bicycle designed for optimal comfort and durability. Next, and the more important piece for Dragon, is the innovative RideReady shipping box, allowing all of Dragon's bicycles to arrive fully tuned and 98% assembled. Pedals, handlebars, and rear wheels arrive installed on the bike.
It's no secret that the direct to consumer business model that's emerging around mountain and road bicycles represents a drastic shift. The reason that big name brands don't stand to gain a ton from this change is that their sales process and online experiences are still embroiled in the same disadvantages that drove them to this new model in the first place; exclusivity, a glut of redundant and repetitive product choice and, of course, exorbitant prices.
"Dragon's goal is to simplify the entire process of obtaining a high-performance roadbike, a product you can trust and rely upon, via the internet," says CEO and Founder David Engelstein. "In doing so, our underlying aim is also incredibly simple: get more people riding and falling in love with their bikes. Unless you're a deeply experienced road-bike enthusiast, going to your local shop to get a custom fit or traversing the myriad of specifications online is unnecessarily intimidating. Make no mistake, a Dragon bicycle is a premier level product - the difference being you don't need to have expert level knowledge, or pay expert-level prices, to get the very best."
Armed with his lifetime love of cycling, his MBA in Entrepreneurship from Seattle University, and a lifetime involvement in family business, David started Dragon Bicycles a year ago in response to the online direct-to-consumer shift and inflated prices. While some of the industry's biggest and most noteworthy brands have incorporated a DTC sales process into their business, none offer fully tuned and practically fully assembled bikes delivered to your front door at a reasonable price. While other brands overburden users with a myriad of form fields, body measurements, and overpriced generic-fit bikes, Dragon goes for simple and effective.
Each Dragon is handmade with optimal materials and features the rock-solid SRAM Apex 1 component group. Following the mission of simplicity, Dragon is pleased to provide free shipping and a 30-day test ride on all orders, as well as a six-year guarantee covering your Dragon.
A fully assembled, fully-tuned, custom-fit carbon road Dragon is currently $1,499. Our 4130 Chromoly double-butted steel road Dragon is $999. Make sure to visit DragonBicycles.com to learn more and get your fit, or call the team at 1-206-905-1469.
