Sportive bikes provide the added comfort needed for longer rides but there is plenty of choice. Here are our choice of six sportive bikes that we consider the best


Bike Man says:

No giant defy

Tricia Wartenberg says:

Bianchi Infinito CV Disc…legit. Best one out there. I own it and love it!

Chris James says:

They’re all race bikes marketed differently

Neil Innes says:

i think this video caused me to unsubscribe. maybe we are spoilt with all the awesome cycling content available on youtube but this was really bad. the presenter sounds like he would rather be doing just about anything other than reading off an advertising sheet. didn’t even bother doing any research at all. i have never heard Trek Domane pronounced Domain in my life! if your going to bother with a whole video i’d google pronunciations of nouns, at the least.

GCN, BikeRadar, and a TON of the even the amateur youtubers have more informative and enthused content..


Lester tan says:

We want damping in our bike not some silly “relaxed geometry” to make the ride comfortable. If it cannot dampen shocks from potholes/patches, what’s the point of having “sportive bike”?

Alex Raha says:

Your presenter sounds unbelievably uninspired.

Dan Froehlich says:

trek doe-mah-knee

Blueboozie says:

anything in the Merida range? really like the idea of shock-absorbers built into the stem / headset

Enrico Della Dora says:

Budget conscious cyclists looking for good sportive bikes should check the whole Canyon Endurace range, not just the carbon one; I’d also give a look to Cube Attain models. By the way choosing a road bike is getting really confusing with sportive/endurance/gravel bikes all blending in while trying to suggest that you need each one of them, when most of us just need a not too aggressive bike with clearance for reasonably comfortable tyres.

No Giant Defy?

rahul dimri says:

I dont get all the talk about making frames more compliant by altering carbon layup. Why cant you just run wider tires with a bit less pressure. In my opinion that gives oodles more comfort.
