What is a Road Bike?
Especially if you're new to biking (in which case, welcome!), it's important to understand the different categories of bicycles. As the name suggests, a road bike is specifically designed for traveling at speed on paved roads. Here at Cannondale, however, we believe a road bike can do and be so much more than that. That's why we've created six types of road bikes - including the fastest race bike on the planet and the most capable gravel bike - that don't only suit your ride; they elevate it.
How to Choose a Road Bike
As you begin to research the different road bikes out there, you'll want to start by asking yourself three key questions:
- Where do you ride most often?
- Why do you ride?
- Electric bike or human-powered?
With those answers in mind, our convenient Bike Finder can help you narrow down the choices and find the specific platform and model that's right for you. Are you a competitive cyclist searching for a new racing bike that will help you beat your personal records (and not to mention, blow past your opponents)? Let us introduce you to the SuperSix Evo. Or, do you prefer a sporty road bike that offers the ease and convenience of power assist whenever you want it? Then the Topstone Neo may be for you. Whether you're looking for a commuter bike to get you there and back again or a fitness bike designed for getting out, working out, and enjoying life on two wheels, our road bikes make your ride - in a word - better.

Fast, efficient, race-focused bicycles engineered to get you to the finish line first.
Race-level performance, all-day comfort, and all-road capability. Designed for adventure.
On-road. Off-road. Any road. These bikes are built to move you beyond the paved and predictable.
Pure race machines proven between the tape from Belgium to Portland.
Fast and sporty road bikes, with the power to climb higher and go further. Endless possibilities.
Visibility, awareness, and confidence built in. With SmartSense's intelligent systems of lights and rear-facing radar, it's never been easier to ride smart.
And the options don't stop there! Here at Cannondale, we understand that buying a new bike is a highly personal decision, and in addition to finding the right type of road bike, you'll also want to make sure the model you choose is equipped with the specific bike features you want and need to fully enhance your own biking experience.
Whether you prefer to keep things traditional and are looking for a road bike with rim brakes, or you're all about the latest technology and are shopping for road bikes equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, we're here to help you find your perfect bike. Have your pick between a road bike with full suspension, no suspension, or rear suspension, and choose between two premium frame materials: aluminum or carbon fiber.
For the past five decades, we've been revolutionizing cycling for the better - for everyone. We heralded aluminum and carbon-fiber manufacturing while everybody else out there stuck with steel; we shook up the suspension establishment with single-sided forks, designing incredible frames and products that reinvented racing. Today, we're proud to be creating award-winning bicycles that help push people further, and we'll never stop iterating, reiterating, and pioneering materials, ergonomics, and technology.
People have called us crazy, ridiculous, and worse. And yet, we knew from the very beginning that what we were doing felt right - and not to mention, it was damn sure more exciting than playing things safe. This unique passion fuels our never-ending drive to make iconic bicycles that just work better. Bicycles that make your ride better. Wherever you ride, whatever you ride, ditch the rulebook, and let's ride together.
