1. Trek Emonda SLR 8 RSL
After the release of the Emonda series back in 2014, Trek realized it was inevitably flawed, so they decided to go back to the drawing board. The goal was to construct the lightest line of road bikes ever offered on the market, finding a good balance between aerodynamics, speed, and weight. This beauty is crafted with one of the lightest USA-made frames, weighing in at just over 13 pounds, with a weight limit of about 275 pounds.
Now taking a look through the customer’s view, the Emonda SLR 8 RSL comes with a lifetime frame warranty and offers a variety of seven different sizes. When riding the bike, one will notice the refined ride quality and evenness to it. This bike rides like a proper race bike should: swift, smooth, light, fast handling and comfortable. FULL STATS
2. Pinarello Dogma F10
Not many bikes manage to look great and shout “quality!” at the same time, especially while sitting still, as Pinarello’s Dogma F10 does so well. Its uncompromisingly fast performance ride tells us that this bike means business! It packs an exhilarating frame fit with minor single digit improvements in stiffness and weight, compared to the highly known Dogma F8.
While riding the F10, you’ll be keen to notice the jumps it makes with the slightest inputs and corners as if you were riding on a racing track. Experiencing this sensation automatically sets the mood to “racing”, which is highly effective for professional cyclists in terms of motivation towards training.
The recent improvement of the aerodynamics in the F10 is but one of the many reasons why this bike is legendary. Even if you’re not much of a racer, an experience with the Dogma F10 will leave you craving more of the “need for speed”. READ MORE
