The endurance road bike provides more comfort and reduced frame stiffness that provides stable and capable handling without sacrificing too much performance. Conquer serious rides with endurance road bikes that combine innovative materials and construction with a full range of choice in components and parts for those seeking comfort and endurance without reduced performance on the road.
Endurance Road Bikes Carried @ Livermore Cyclery
It sounds like clever marketing, but endurance (sportif, in Europe) road bikes are the new road bike. So what is an endurance bike? It’s basically a road bike, but with more relaxed geometry to make long-distance rides more comfortable. It is not just a euphemism for a beginners road bike either, the industry is taking this very seriously and you will see them show up in spring pro stage races such as the epic Paris-Roubaix and even the Tour de France when the conditions demand and sometimes they form standard choices for some of the pro's. Some have “soft tails” to take the bite out of rougher roads.
This is where the new generation of endurance road bikes begin to offer some unique and innovative engineering and design features. Although, not all of these technology are original in the fullest sense, the application of these designs are offering some distinct and real benefits and advantages for the cyclist.
It’s also a great bike for serious riders who can’t or don’t like an aero frame stifness and position. If you’re not hammering the local weekend and lunch-time fast group rides, or becoming a criterium gladiator diving corners at full tilt for less than 60 minutes, do you really need a stiff race or aerodynamic bike? We think not!
Trek Domane - Forgiving Ride, Relentless Performance
Every Road Has a Roubaix
Every crack, every pothole, every rough patch and bit of chip seal—the off-limits boneshakers to the smoothest homestretches—the Roubaix isn't resigned to a single day in France, it's made for every road, everywhere. The Specialized Bicycle Co. offers the 2018 Roubaix with models exploiting the all-new Future Shock. Rides are now even smoother and even faster.
The C5 Engineered to Endure By Cervelo
Cervélo has always pushed high-performance cycling to new heights, and is now taking it to new surfaces and seasons with the launch of the C Series platform. The inaugural model, the C5, is designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling. It combines the exceptional lightness and appropriate stiffness engineered into every Cervélo – including an all-carbon fork from the pioneering Project California team – with a uniquely integrated disc-braking system.
