Felt FR2 Disc

The Felt FR2 Disc is one of the most responsive bikes we have ridden this year with race-friendly geometry.

Specialized Amira Expert UDi2

Kristen Legan /

Specialized’s Amira has long been the gold standard for women’s race bikes and is once again the choice ride for the dominant Boels-Dolmans WorldTour team. The featherweight Amira frame is ideal for big mountain climbs while a stiff platform provides plenty of kick for the most explosive sprints. Specialized builds it with women’s-specific race geometry, […]

Felt VR3W

Kristen Legan /

Felt’s “Variable Road” platform blurs the line between the endurance and gravel categories. It feels equally at home on pavement and dirt thanks to its endurance road geometry and a host of adventure details like big tire clearance and Rotor’s new 46/30-tooth adventure crankset.

Scott's Foil bridges the gap between the aero and all-around categories with great geometry and a high-end build.

Masi Vivo Quattro

Dan Cavallari /

This might be the quintessential New England bike: It soaks up impacts from cracked, neglected roads common in the great Northeast, and rips on rolling terrain. It’s also a slow-steering machine, with a tall 185-millimeter head tube, 72.5-degree head tube angle, and long 425-millimeter chain stays. So forget about this one for the racecourse. The […]
