How to Buy

The Pronto was specifically designed to meet the exacting standards of the Royal Mail, beating competition from around the world to become the sole choice for daily mail deliveries across the UK. Under Royal Mail’s name the ‘Mailstar’, there were over 5000 in active service at any one time.

With both front and rear carriers, it can carry loads up to 40 kilos whilst remaining steady and easy to ride. This is aided by the specially designed step-through frame, which allows for safe mounting and dismounting even when fully loaded. The Pronto can cope with all areas of commercial and industrial use, thanks to all-weather hub brakes and gears as well as robust puncture resistant tyres. This also makes it extremely low-maintenance, reducing the costs to your business in the long term.

Thoughtful features like easy trigger gear controls and a quick adjust seatpost means it can be used by all personnel without fuss and only the bare minimum of training. The Pronto is therefore a dependable mode of transport and a versatile alternative to licensed vehicles, all backed up by Pashley’s unique British hand-built quality.

The Pronto comes in the one frames size shown below, followed by their corresponding inside leg length range.

Frame SizeInside Leg Length
20"26.5-37"

The frame size is the distance between the centrepoint of the cycle's bottom bracket (where the pedal arms extend from) and the top of the frame's seat tube (where the seatpost enters the frame).

Leg length should be measured from the sole of your foot to the inner top of your thigh (in inches) - please note that this is a different measurement to your trouser inside leg length.

If you have any questions about the PRONTO, or would like to place an order, call Pashley direct on +44(0)1789 292 263 and our sales team will be happy to advise you. To help with your purchase decision we can...

  • mock-up visuals with your company branding and colours.
  • arrange a test ride for you at our factory in Stratford-upon-Avon.
  • provide advice about cycle maintenance including the assistance we can provide with mechanic training for fleet cycles.

Frame

Hand-built industrial spec frame

Durable welded steel frame designed specifically for industrial use. Comes with mounting points for front and rear carriers. Built using steel tubes in heavy-duty tube sections that retain ultimate strength (due to the intrinsically high tensile strength of steel) whilst giving more ride comfort and ‘feel’ than aluminium or carbon fibre.

2 of 10

Gears

Low maintenance 3 Speed hub gears

With easy-to-use light-shifting thumb trigger, they allow you to glide along flatter terrain with ease and climb inclines at a gentle pace. A robust, fully enclosed gear system that requires minimal maintenance.

3 of 10

Wheels

Heavy-duty alloy wheels

These wheels have been built to withstand heavy-duty handling with durable 13 gauge spokes and 25mm section aluminium rims. Front and rear wheel removal and replacement has been simplified, and the integral chain tensioner reduces chain wear and eliminates rear wheel adjustment due to chain stretch.

4 of 10

Brakes

Powerful, fully-enclosed hub brakes with heavy duty, automotive-standard cables and easy action brake-lever

Enclosed and sealed from all weathers, these low maintenance hub brakes are robust and long-lasting and provide excellent stopping power come rain or shine.

6 of 10

Saddle

High-comfort and durable padded saddle

7 of 10

Paint

Highly-durable paint finish

Durable powder-coat finish with corrosion resistant hi-zinc base coat. All of Pashley’s cycles are painted by hand using an oven-baked powder-coat to give a durable and vibrant finish.

8 of 10

Chainguard

Protective steel chainguard

Helps reduce wear and tear on the chain by reducing its exposure to grit and water, thus decreasing the amount of maintenance required. Also protects the ride from catching the chain and grease marks.

9 of 10

Tyres

Robust multi-surface tyres with extra puncture protection and reflective side-walls

Hard-wearing tyres with secure tread design and an inner SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber that offers extra resistance to shards of glass and pins. A reflective band around the circumference of the tyre walls provide extra visibility after darkness.
