Road Bikes

Road bikes are the fastest and most efficient way to cycle on tarmac. With a road bike you get a lightweight frame with fast rolling wheels and dropped handlebars to help you ride faster. The best road bikes are built around carbon fibre frames which are lightweight, stiff and strong. Look for a road frame fitted with a SRAM Rival or a Shimano Ultegra for premium shifting performance. Shimano Tiagra components are quality at a more affordable price. Disc brakes offer greater stopping power in poor weather conditions. A full carbon fork on an aluminium (or carbon bike) is a great feature to look for. It will reduce frame weight and help dampen vibrations through the handlebars.

You’ll find carbon frames available from all major bike brands. The best carbon road bikes change fibre and resin layup in specific areas of the frame for stiffness where you need it, and compliance where you want it. Endurance bikes (also known as sportive bikes) offer perfect balance with a comfortable ride over long distances. Road race bikes are great for general road cycling, especially climbing, while aero race bikes are the fastest in a straight line. Flat bar road bikes are a great choice for urban cycling and fitness training as they are easier to ride on busy city streets. Road frame sizing is usually measured in centimetres from the middle of front chainring to the top of the seat tube. Compact road frames (with a sloping top tube) differ slightly, so it’s worth checking the sizing chart on each bike.
