A sign of the times: full-speed vs full adventure!

Things are settling down – many brands’ portfolios seem to have stopped expanding with an ever increasing diversity of model ranges. Innovative components and the constant evolution of materials is allowing them to design bikes that are more versatile than ever, requiring fewer models for specific uses. Competitive riders who are out to race against the clock will find performance oriented bikes that are both aerodynamically optimised for the straights and light enough for the climbs. To test this hypothesis and find out which is the fastest all-round race bike currently on the market, we got out our stopwatches and power metres for our race bike group test. Check out the group test here to find out which of the 5 race bikes came out on top.

On the other side of that you’ve got the connoisseurs of good times: those who don’t follow a strict training plan, don’t always have a race number pinned to their jersey, and put a lot of value on things like freedom when they ride. If that’s you, you’ll find what you’re looking for amongst the endurance, marathon and Gran Fondo segments. The adventurers amongst us are less about racing and more about riding, simply enjoying the time spent in the drops during their post-work jaunts. Do you recognise yourself here? Good, then this is the group test for you! In times where everything seems to need a new name and the neologism specialists of bike brand marketing departments are constantly trying to outdo each other, a clear line has finally been drawn. What used to be an endurance, marathon or Gran Fondo bike is now just an all-road bike. What’s changed? Well… the name. And the enormous potential and capabilities of the newest bikes in this segment, of course. Regardless of whether it’s a short post-work ride, a relaxed cruise over several hours, hobby races, or gravel shortcuts, a modern road bike that hasn’t been designed specifically for racing and that feels at home on compact gravel, a.k.a. an all-road bike, excels in each of these scenarios.

Despite the seemingly clear differences between these two schools of thought, newcomers to the sport of road riding will still ask themselves: “Which bike suits me and my requirements? Which is the best complete package? And which is the best bike of all?” This is what a lot of excited newbies sound like and you might recognise yourself in these questions. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this. As such, this group test is for you. For all the road bike individualists like Sarah and Michael who ride 6,000 km/year on average – our readers’ most common names and average annual mileage according to the 2021 GRAN FONDO reader survey of over 11,100 participants (check out the results here).

Just like us, Sarah and Michael are probably in awe of the performances demonstrated by the world tour pros and the wattage bombs that Mathieu van der Poel drops on a regular basis. It’s understandable that we’re fascinated by the pros and their bikes, but the majority of mere mortals like us shouldn’t be looking to them for guidance when buying a new bike. If you earn a living from racing your bike, demand maximum performance or simply like to believe you’re a pro, you’ve chosen the perfect hobby since you’ll be able to ride almost the exact same bike that you see in the pro peloton. For everyone else, including the open minded disciples of pain who occasionally want more from riding their bike than just chasing KOMs on Strava, this group test is here to prove that you shouldn’t have to shy away from throwing in a few more gravel segments the next time you plan a route. Full-speed and full-on adventure!

Road bikes: between rebirth, friends with benefits and lots of gravel

Gravel bike sales have shot up and there’s a bunch of possible reasons for this. Is it due to the hip and carefree videos of the core scene, proclaiming the freedom of life on two wheels? Maybe it’s the breathtaking reports of events in far flung corners of the earth, or perhaps the increase of traffic on asphalt roads? We’re sure that the above-mentioned aspects all play a role in the current gravel boom, but it’s primarily due to the easygoing nature and versatility of these bikes that makes them the perfect choice for so many riders. But what’s that got to do with this group test, you ask?

In times of “friends with benefits,” in which no one seems to want to make any long-term commitments, it obviously makes the most sense financially to invest in a bike that will allow you to realise as many of your pent up dreams as possible, doesn’t it? You want a loyal two-wheeled companion where anything goes but nothing’s compulsory. It’s this mindset that’s rubbing off from the gravel scene onto the road bike segment, turning the latest road bikes into thoroughbred all-rounders. In doing so, they’re relegating the more specialist bikes into niche existences and showing that it’s become possible to combine previously opposing handling characteristics. While you used to have to look for only the smoothest asphalt when planning your routes, you can now include stretches of cobblestones, poorly maintained surfaces and the occasional gravel road. This new-found versatility is liberating, a kind of two-wheeled self-actualisation, emancipating road bikes from the confines of performance!

Back to the roots! If you look at the terrain that Tour de France riders had to cope with a hundred years ago… they needed the bike that we’re looking for here!

You might ask yourself why it’s taken so long for this development to happen. However, we must acknowledge that the detours the various brands took to get here via sub-categories such as endurance, aero and climbing were a vital part of the journey. It’s the only way the bike industry could work out what really matters in each specific use case. They can now use the knowledge that they’ve gained to bring it all back to the bigger picture: not just the pure performance but the experience as a whole. It’s with this mindset that we’re seeing the birth of a new generation of road bikes, capable of doing (almost) anything on (almost) any terrain. It’s the rebirth of the road bike!

Which bikes did we test? The best all-road bikes of 2022 in review

As the name suggests, all-road bikes are road bikes that are designed to excel on a wide variety of terrain, from perfectly smooth asphalt to moderate gravel roads. But there’s more to it than that. After all, almost all modern road bikes are capable of that, even the aero specialists – thanks to wider tires and tubeless technology. What is the difference then? It’s quite simple, really: What typically sets an all-road bike apart is the geometry and the level of comfort. They’re meant to be comfortable enough to ride so that you can spend all day in the saddle even on poor surfaces without needing to visit your physiotherapist or chiropractor to have your spine realigned when you’re done. So, are all-road bikes the same as endurance bikes? Yes and no. While endurance road bikes also FOCUS on providing geometry that puts you in a more comfortable, upright riding position, they’re not necessarily made for poorly maintained roads or gravel.

Just because modern race bikes are capable of riding almost everywhere, and the pros hammer them over cobblestones and gravel at the Paris-Roubaix and Strade Bianche, that doesn’t make them all-road bikes.

WHAT IS THE RIGHT SIZE MOUNTAIN BIKE FOR ME? Two bikes identical in every way but size.

As you can see, there are no hard and fast rules for defining an all-road bike and the different terms used to describe more or less the same thing only add to the confusion. It doesn’t help that some all-road bikes have mastered the sorcery of laying down a respectable race performance on the road despite boasting ample long-distance comfort and a relaxed riding position. As such, our definition of an all-road bike is this: A bike for when you don’t know what to expect. It’s for all the long rides where you don’t know what kind of topography and terrain you might encounter. Simple, right?

As you might expect from the confusion surrounding the definition of all-road, our test field is very diverse, and every brand has a different approach. Some try to make their classic road bike a little more off-road capable by adding a few modifications, whereas others approach the matter from the side of gravel, and some just start with a blank canvas. You’ll find an overview of the seven bikes on test in the table below:

As different as the bikes might be, they also have similarities: all seven of the bikes on test rely on electronic shifting and hydraulic brakes. For the groupsets, the test field is almost evenly divided among the three common brands. Two of the bikes come specced with Campagnolo components, two rely on SRAM and the remaining three rely on Shimano groupsets. All the bikes are supplied with carbon wheels, though there are big differences regarding the tire width. We had everything from 700 x 26C to 700 x 32C. The bikes’ weights range from 6.88 kg to 8.05 kg, bringing the average weight to 7.58 kg. With an average price of € 8,920.57, they’re not cheap, showing that you’ll need quite a big budget when shopping for a modern all-road bike.

What should you look for? The most important characteristics of a road bike

If you’ve ever competed in a hobby race, you can probably confirm the following hypothesis: you’ll often see the best bikes right at the front and right at the back of the peloton. And that’s precisely what we find to be one of road biking’s most fascinating aspects. Regardless of whether you choose to buy a bike because you’re into the tech, you demand the best performance, or simply because of an emotional draw to the product, anyone can get their hands on the latest road bike tech. It doesn’t matter whether you’re racing to win, whether you race at all or if all you’re interested in is enjoying a ride with friends at the weekend. Unfortunately, however, a lot of bikes still get designed for pro racers while also being made available to us hobby bike fans. Rules like those of the UCI might apply to most official mass-participation races, though a large part of the road riding community will never pin a race number to their jersey, let alone earn their living from racing. So, for us, what counts most is having a good time, not a fast time!

We’re all about good times – not fast times!

To cater to the widest possible target group with a huge range of use cases, the best road bike of this group test must be an all-rounder, equally suitable for an experienced rider with racing ambitions as it is for leisurely cruisers, tourers, newbies and adventurers.

In other words, the best bike must be capable of meeting the needs of as many types of riders as possible, preferably without having to make any compromises. As such, our dream road bike offers balanced handling, can go fast if you want it to, is sufficiently compliant and comfortable, and instils you with confidence. over, it should be capable of doing all that on perfect asphalt as well as poorly maintained roads and smooth gravel. In search of this bike, our test riders put the test field through its paces in real world conditions, after which they discussed their findings, which occasionally resulted in rather heated, or, shall we say, passionate, debates. Will we be presenting you with a table of results, a points system and percentages from lab tests? Not at all! This is a hand-crafted test, conducted by riders with grit between their teeth and either lactic acid or coffee flowing through their bulging veins. You’ll find our test criteria below.


Handling is easily our most important criterion. We couldn’t have said it better than the ex-pro David Millar who helped us test bikes for our 2019 group test in Girona: “A good bike must have good manoeuvrability. […] I believe a bike’s handling determines whether you will win or lose a race. If the handling is shit – the bike is shit – at least to me it is.” We’ve got nothing to add. When it comes to the handling, we always ask ourselves how agile a bike is on a scale of nervous/playful to composed/sluggish. How precise is it through the corners? Does it feel balanced between the front and rear? How direct is the steering? These are all questions we asked ourselves during this year’s group test. The best bikes on test can find the sweet spot between agility and composure, offering direct and precise handling through the corners without feeling nervous or vague. With those characteristics, it’s suitable for both ambitious riders and leisurely cruisers.

Acceleration and speed

Regardless of whether you’re pulling away from the ice cream parlour, accelerating out of a corner or sprinting for the finish line, a light-footed bike can make all the difference when it counts. And for a bike to be quick, it all comes down to the weight distribution, a low overall weight and minimal rotating mass. That said, the bike’s efficiency on flat terrain is just as important. So, we also ask ourselves, how easily can the bike carry its speed? In this case, aerodynamically optimised bikes are typically at an advantage despite their generally higher weight. The combination of reduced wind resistance and the higher rotating mass of the slightly heavier deep-profile aero rims allows them to carry their momentum better, though this comes at the cost of acceleration. However, the rider makes up 75% of the total wind resistance. So, the longer you can remain comfortable in an aerodynamic riding position, the longer you can hold your speed. Therefore, the bike’s comfort has a direct influence on its speed. The perfect road bike strikes an even balance of traits in both scenarios.

Ermittle die richtige Schrittlänge (Schritthöhe)

Berechne die richtige Größe deines gewünschten Fahrradtyps

Da unterschiedliche Fahrradtypen auch unterschiedliche Geometrien haben, muss deine Schrittlänge zum gewünschten Radtyp in Beziehung gesetzt werden.

Wähl dazu einfach den Fahrradtyp aus der untenstehenden Übersicht aus, für den du deine Rahmengröße berechnen möchtest! Dort findest du für jeden Fahrradtyp einen extra Rahmenrechner und alternativ eine Größentabelle.

Hier gibst du nun deine Schrittlänge ein und bekommst eine grobe Empfehlung für die optimale Rahmenhöhe bei diesem Radtyp. Die nebenstehende Tabelle hilft dir zusätzlich, die Maße anhand deiner Körpergröße einzuordnen.

Du hast bereits ein bestimmtes Fahrrad im Auge? Dann erfährst du im dritten Schritt. wie du die richtige Rahmengröße für dieses bestimmst.


Finetuning mit dem Smartfit-Rahmengrößenrechner

Du willst es genauer wissen und hast deine Rahmengröße für deinen gewünschten Radtyp nach Durchführung von Schritt eins und zwei gefunden? Du hast daraufhin auch schon ein paar Räder in die engere Wahl gezogen? Nun wird es Smart, denn auch deine Armlänge und die individuellen Rahmengeometrien der unterschiedlichen Hersteller spielen eine Rolle, damit du sichergehen kannst, dass das gewünschte Rad zu deinen Körpermaßen passt.

Allein schon der Geometrie-Unterschied zwischen einem klassischen Diamant-Rahmen mit nahezu geradem Oberrohr und einem Trapez-Rahmen mit abfallendem Oberrohr lässt erahnen, wie unterschiedlich die Geometrien der einzelnen Räder desselben Typs (beispielweise Trekking-Rad) derselben Marke ausfallen können. Nun kommen noch die unterschiedlichen Geometrien (bei gleicher Rahmengröße) von Hersteller zu Hersteller dazu.

Deshalb haben wir mit den Expertinnen vom Radlabor einen Online-Rahmengrößenrechner entwickelt, der Körpermaße, Radmodell und viel Bikefitting-Erfahrung in einem kinderleicht bedienbaren und dennoch exakten Rechner zusammenbringt.

Wichtig für die Ermittlung der richtigen Rahmengröße ist das Verhältnis von Rahmenhöhe (Stack) und Rahmenlänge (Reach). Dieses Verhältnis variiert sehr stark zwischen den Herstellern und Radtypen, deshalb müssen sie zusammen mit deinen Körperdaten in den Rechner einbezogen werden.

Die Geometriedaten zu den einzelnen Rädern bekommen wir direkt vom Hersteller. Aber auch das Verhältnis von Arm- und Beinlänge ist von Mensch zu Mensch verschieden, deshalb müssen auch diese beiden Werte in den Rechner einfließen.

Der Smartfit-Rechner ist bei fast allen Fahrrädern bei uns im Shop auf der Produktseite hinterlegt. Sollte es für dein ausgewähltes Rad keinen Smartfit-Rechner geben, liegt dies höchstwahrscheinlich daran, dass wir keine Geometriedaten vom Hersteller bekommen haben. Du kannst deine Rahmengröße in diesem Fall aber trotzdem mittels Schritt 2 berechnen. Auf der Produktseite genügt es, den Button „Größe berechnen“ oberhalb der Rahmenhöhenauswahl zu klicken.

Der Smartfit-Rechner erscheint. Wähle zunächst dein Geschlecht und deine Körpergröße aus.

Als Zweites siehst du die durchschnittliche Beinlänge. Du kannst diese an deine eigene Beinlänge anpassen, um ein genaueres Ergebnis zu erhalten. Deine Schrittlänge kennst du aus Schritt 1 dieser Anleitung zur Rahmengrößenermittlung.

Als Nächstes siehst du die durchschnittliche Armlänge. Du kannst diese auch mit deinen eigenen Maßen abgleichen, um bessere Ergebnisse zu erzielen. Wie du deine Armlänge misst, erfährst du direkt im Tool (klick einfach auf das Fragezeichen in der Abbildung).

Dann berechnet das Tool über den Smartfit-Algorithmus die individuelle Rahmengröße für das konkrete Rad. Ist dieses ausverkauft, werden dir sogar geeignete Alternativen, auch von anderen Marken, vorgeschlagen.
