Top 5 Cycling Bikes - Climbing Edition

With the UCI weight limit capped at 6.8kg, 'lightweight' was largely defined at that point, and brands were able to focus their attention on improving other areas of the bike rather than simply seeking to reduce grams of weight. of bikes. Yet this continues to be a constant search among cyclists around the world.

But what defines a bike as a climber?

The data tells us that aero bikes are faster on flat and rolling courses, but let's be honest – the mountains are still where it really counts. Strava's important segments are usually not boring sections of flat or rolling road, they're mountains, and on proper climbs, lighter weight still trumps aerodynamics.

A relatively recent development is the implementation of disc brakes on lighter bikes. Rim brakes have long been favored because of the weight difference, but the difference has narrowed considerably and it's worth considering that what goes up must also come down.

You can appreciate the improved power, consistency, and modulation of hydraulic disc brakes as you head down that 20% hill, with your heart rate climbing the scale after a full-throttle KOM attempt, and it's widely accepted that disc brakes offer better braking performance, especially when conditions worsen.
