Road bikes are about speed and efficiency on tarmac. Road bikes are lightweight, stiff and strong for maximum efficiency. You can easy spot a road bike by their drop handlebars to put you in a low down, more aero position and skinny tyres.
Road bikes under £1000 are made of aluminium and perfect for beginners, sportive riders and commuters. Carbon road bikes start over £1,000 having refined drivetrains & are lightweight making a superb choice for more frequent cyclists who also race hard.
