When it comes to Road Bikes there isn’t just one type of road, or one type of road rider. Each brand we sell have different categories or models which are the following:
Race/Climbing Bikes. Lightweight, no fuss & super light.
Gravel Bikes. One for the more recent developments in road bike genres is gravel bikes. Bigger tyres, mounts everywhere, so you can go everywhere.
Sportive/Endurance bikes, these are more comfortable bikes that allow more compliance for their riders and will have a less racer position than Aero or Race/Climbing
Aero bikes - Looking for more gains and and that Incredibly fast bike that just wants to go than an Aero bike it is.
We have compiled a list of our top bikes for this season. Bike shortages are still here, so if you are looking for that bike for the summer and all the sportives that will be on this year, start planning now.
Trek Madone SL & SLR
Thats right it wouldn't be an Aero List without the King of Super Bikes the Trek Madone. Trek provide two options for customers. These are the Trek SL range which comes with two models the Trek Madone SL 6 which comes with 500 series OCLV Frame, Mechanical Ultegra Group-set and Bontrager Aeolus comp 5 with a standard bar and stem setup. The next model is the Trek Madone SL7 which comes with the same frame, but comes with Shimano Ultegra 12 Speed Group-Set or Sram Force (with power-meter) option. The SL7 Also has a set of the Bontrager Aelous Pro 51 wheels (Carbon).
The Next jump up is the SLR Madone. This comes with the 800 series OCLV Frame and also the integrated carbon handle bar and stem.The SLR 6 and SLR 7 comes with Bontrager Aeolus 51 carbon wheels. There are a few options in this model line up which are SLR 6 Etap (Sram Rival Groupset), SLR 7 Which comes with Shimano Ultegra 12 speed Di2 or Sram Force or the SLR 9 which comes with Bontrager RSL carbon wheels and 12 speed Dura Ace Di2 or Sram Red Groupset.
When it comes to Aero we cannot mention the super Scott Foil. Stage wins at all the grand tours, classic victories at Milan San Remo, Liege Bastogne Liege and Paris-Roubaix - we can safely say that the FOIL is the most versatile aero bike on the market. There are a few line ups in the Scott Foil range. - Scott Foil 30 - Scott Foil 20 - Scott Foil 10 - Scott Foil RC Pro
We have already had Foil 30, 20 and 10 come through the doors already this year and they are moving fast, so if you see any In-Stock jump at the opportunity as they are one of our Top Picks this year.
If you want to ride uphill faster, or simply make the hills a little easier for you, a lightweight bike is an obvious move. These are lighter than Aero Bikes and are more nimble up climbs. Over the last year or two we are seeing more and more customers looking for lighter bikes.
