Who are aluminium road bikes suitable for?
While road bikes used to be made of steel, most bikes today are made of aluminium or carbon. Aluminium racing bikes are suitable for sporty riding and are an inexpensive alternative to carbon road bikes. They’re perfect for beginners looking to get their first road bike. Advanced hobby cyclists who are looking for high quality at a good price will find what they are looking for in a lightweight aluminium road bike.
Aluminium and carbon compared
Advantages and disadvantages of aluminium
Aluminium road bikes have an excellent price to performance ratio. The material is of high quality and available at reasonable prices. In addition, aluminium is almost corrosion-free. With good care, an aluminium frame does not rust. Coupled with its durability, aluminium is a reliable and durable material.
Aluminium is heavier than carbon but lighter than steel. Aluminium road bikes are not cumbersome in their handling and are less stiff than carbon. Depending on your riding style, this can be a pro or a con.
Pros and cons of carbon
Carbon can be shaped freely into a mould and offers frame designers freedom to optimise the bike down to the last millimetre. Since carbon is very light, aerodynamic racing bikes are often made of this material. Carbon road bikes are standard among the pro peloton.
The decisive advantage for most hobby cyclists is the high price. Because they are more complex to manufacture, carbon road bikes are considered a high-end product. The high rigidity makes carbon a relatively sensitive material. If a carbon frame is damaged, you should dispose of it, as it can break under certain circumstances.
Which material is right for you?
The material that is suitable for your road bike depends on your requirements and goals. Would you like to reach top speeds on asphalt or compete in hotly contested competitions? Then carbon will be the best choice. The light frame is advantageous on climbs. On the flat, you benefit from the aerodynamic tube shapes and optimised stiffness. This is why carbon wheels are predominantly used in competitive racing.
If you do cycling as a hobby and are looking for a solid, light and inexpensive bike, you can’t go wrong with an aluminium road bike. IT offers you a dynamic riding experience that is typical for road bikes, yet it remains affordable and stable.
Who benefits from an electric road bike?
