Three new models added and each existing model gets alternate colourscheme

Split Second doubles up Blank range

Split Second Imports has told BikeBiz how the Blank brand has effectively "doubled" its size thanks to each model now coming in two or more colourschemes.

Three new models have also been added to the 2011 catalogue – the Verse, Vision and Sabbath.

Split Second’s sales manager Dan Haynes said: "Not only have we added these new models, but we have more than doubled the range by adding a second colourway for each existing model, which means we now have 18 in total, up from the seven we had previously.

"The Blank brand has shown tremendous growth over the last few years due to the huge range of multi-coloured, variously-sized replacement parts and accessories, not to mention the bikes which perfectly hit that all-important entry-level, 25-9 micro-geared, £250 to £350 price bracket."

The new Blank Sabbath tops the range at £369.99 and will arrive in stock at the end of this month.
