Types of Road Bikes

If you want to start cycling, whether to keep fit or travel to and from work or school, you will need a good bicycle. There are many different bikes in the market, and the most common one is the road bike. Road bikes are designed to provide the best performance under different circumstances.

If you are interested in riding a road bike, it is important to note that there are several types of road bikes. You can also choose a road bike rental if you do not want to purchase one. Here are some of the types of road bikes that you can rent.

Gravel Bikes

Gravel bikes are the most recent types of road bikes designed for off-road terrains. They have strong features such as disc brakes and a firm frame that make the bike handle aggressive riding.

Because of their strong structure, gravel bikes are slow compared to other road bikes.

Endurance Bikes

If you are looking for a road bike rental that’s perfect for challenging events, you should get an endurance bike. An endurance bike has a light structure that offers comfort and stability. It is perfect for hilly terrain and long-distance cycling.

Commuter Bikes

This is a bike for day-to-day activities such as riding to the market. Commuter bikes have strong frames that make the bikes strong for daily use and are also fitted with other parts such as mudguards and racks.

Do not use this bike for aggressive cycling or racing if you rent it from a road bike rental service.

Race Bikes

Race bikes are designed for racing; hence if you want to get somewhere faster, you should rent this bike. A race bike has a light design to reduce drag, emphasizing speed rather than comfort. If you want to ride long distances, you should avoid this bike.

Touring Bikes

If you are looking for a bike to go on a cross-country tour, you should rent a touring bike. A touring bike is designed to provide comfort and carry heavy loads. Touring bikes have wide tires designed to support heavy loads and provide additional control.

Dudes! Are you really asking that? Ok, we et it there are alot of dodgy folks online these days trying to make a quick buck. But now, we have put our heart and soul into Rugged Motorbike Jeans and scamming is the last thing on our mind. We are a small team of bikers, generally adventuring around on our various bikes (supermoto's, adventure, naked street and enduro bikes). If you email us you will generally get our CEO Sam or one of our other support staff who love the motorcycle community and are a part of it wherever we go. Everything is legit as soon as you make an order, it is processed immediately and on the way to you.

Yes & No. We sell a wide range of pants which DO have protective knee and hip pads and are suitable for motorcycle riding AND we also sell biker style jeans and pants which, although are all made of durable tough material are not certified for safety and do not have the protective padding needed in case you do get a little too throttle heavy and lay your bike down (we have all been there and done that!). Please check each product and contact us if you have any questions on this.

Since we offer a wide range from various manufacturers, they all have their own sizing per brand. However there is a sizing chart on each product page, look for the tab just above the description or the size chart link on the right side, or email us and we can recommend the size for you.

PLEASE NOTE : the size charts are taken directly from the manufacturer and the length is incorrect on some, the length is generally a standard length based on the waist size (waist size is correct on all size charts).

Typically the standard FREE shipping (which has full online track and trace) takes anywhere from 7 to 40 days, depending on your country. We also offer an expedited shipping service for a low fee of $4.95. Please see the shipping page for more detailed info.
