We’ve often done a best performing race bikes of the year video. But, in 2016 we wanted to step things up. With the help of one of GCN’s data geniuses, we took things up a few levels. Revamped UCI WorldTour points, fairer ratings for Tour de France stage victories and major one day races and more… The result? This video, where we rank the top 10 pro cycling race bikes of the year – from Canyon to Specialized, Giant to Pinarello, and, the top 5 bike manufacturers of the year. This is not just an opinion piece, this is a quantifiable, provable ranking system.

Now, we are absolutely certain that you have questions, so, let us know down in the comments and we will explain in more detail in the New Year!

This video also raises a slightly awkward question… Maybe aerodynamics and lightweight aren’t the only things that win bike races? Chip in with your thoughts on that in the comments, too.
