We love road bikes and hope our passion for them rubs off on you. Let us guide you through the road range.
Endurance bikes are designed to be fast, stable and perhaps most importantly - comfortable. Endurance bikes are in it for the long haul. Longer rides are made a breeze thanks to more upright geometry which prevents your back from getting sore. With Trek bikes, comfort technology is added to the frame called Isospeed which takes the bumps out of the road and keeps your legs feeling fresh throughout longer rides. Look out for other charecteristics of endurance bikes such as wider tyres which obsorb rough roads and ergonomic cushioning in handlebars which eliminates numbness to the hands. If you're into lenghty rides and prioritise comfort then an Endurance Road is for you.
If you get your thrills from the big climbs then go for lightweight road. Every gram counts when it comes to a lightweight road frame so bike companies work hard to shed grams whilst keeping frames strong and supple. Don't expect a comfortable ride - you'll be low and aggressive. The sacrifice of comfort is rewarded in climbing ability. The lightness makes climbing a breeze and inspires you to attack hills. Most modern lightweight bikes now also have a blend of aerodynamics encompassed into them so you're quick on the flat too. KOM chaser? Go lightweight road.
