Endurance bikes from Focus, Simplon, Ribble, Giant, Cube and Boardman in our six of the best video

Are you in the market for a road bike that will provide comfort for those longer rides you've got planned in 2018? What you need is an endurance bike, and the market is awash with choice. To help you narrow down that choice, we've picked six of the best endurance bikes we've tested here at road.cc. 

These are bikes that will provide a smoother ride on rough roads thanks to cleverly designed frames and wider tyres. Gearing is optimised for hillier terrain as well. Disc brakes are common on endurance bikes but some of the bikes here either the choice of rim or disc brakes, though we're increasingly seeing a trend towards disc brakes only. 

Anyway, that's enough of an intro, hit play on the video to learn more about the six bikes we've featured. 

The six bikes in this video are: 

Focus Paralane Al Tiagra 2018

Cube Attain GTC Pro Disc Road Bike 2017

Boardman SLR Endurance Disc 9.0

Giant Defy Advanced 3

Simplon Pavo Granfondo

Ribble Granfondo
