Mountain bikes are available in a range of different flavours for different types of riding. From relaxed countryside cycling to adrenaline fuelled trail adventures.
Electric road bikes have come a long way since their first incarnations.

Here we have picked five of our best and most up to date choices from this burgeoning area of cycling.

Using road clipless pedals vastly improve the performance and efficiency of your road riding. Offering better support for improved efficiency over flat pedals, clipless road pedals feature a large cleat that is attached to your shoe.
