1. Giant Propel Advanced Pro 2 2015

Rated as one of the best high performance bikes released in 2015 the Giant is a proven winner when it comes to sprints, triathlons and singular races. The Vector SLR seat post offers a wide range adjustment and minimal drag along with the Power Core bottom bracket. Priced at £2500 it doesn't come cheap but if your saving up for something serious then this could be the one for you.

2.  Volton Alation 500

Unlike the majority of electric bikes out on the market today, The Volton Alation 500 is made to tackle pretty much any path, giving you the ultimate all round bike. The great over sized headset allows responsive handling and strength throughout the bike, while the 500 watt motor pushes you at speeds of up to 20mph. Price £1500

3. Brompton P6R 2015

The king of the folding bikes and with more components and accessories to add on than you could ever imagine, this really is the all time classic. The multi functional racing handle comes standard along with the 6 gears. Priced at £1175 for this standard version, it is at the top price range when it comes to folding bikes however you'll never meet a Brompton owner who says it wasn't worth it.

4. Specialized Fatboy Pro 2015

When is comes too off-road it doesn't really get better than this. The enormous tyres will get your through and over pretty much anything put in your way. The 26" alloy rims and the aluminium frame gives you great power throughout the bike. Price £3500

5. Specialized Amira SL4 Pro Race 2015 Women's Road

For women who live to race whether it’s a pro-level or a city-line sprint with the local club the Amira SL4 Pro features an incredibly light and stiff frame. Pricing in at £4000 its definitely not cheap but its a serious bit of kit.

I understand the need for variety but a decent trail full suspension bike would have been a nice addition to the list.



Nice to see a variety of bikes in this post. Inventing a word: Cyclocentric. Not too much bias towards the road-bike. Cool.
