Six of the best sportive road bikes - 2017

We pick six of the best bikes sportive bikes that offer comfort and speed

Are you looking for a new road bike for tackling sportives or long rides and want a bike that is going to offer a smooth and comfortable ride? We've got just the video for you, in which we pick six of the best sportive and endurance bikes we've reviewed here at 

These bikes offer a more relaxed fit and comfortable ride than race bikes. That's going to put less strain on your back on those longer rides you've got planned this summer. Most of these bikes employ different solutions to smoothing the ride, from wider tyres to suspension. Disc brakes are popular on these sportive and endurance bikes, but rim brake versions of some of these bikes are also available, but increasingly less so.

David worked on the tech team from 2012-2020. Previously he was editor of and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes
