Aero race bikes as the name suggests are simply road bikes with extreme attention paid to making the frame as efficient and aerodynamic as possible in order to go faster. This is in essence an excellent way to save time and speed up with 0% extra effort required from you. In a selection of tests, particularly at higher average speeds the aero bike proved faster with the exception of slow steep climbs. Any time lost here would be easily made up on the corresponding descent. By adding clip on aero bars you can reduce wind resistance even further though it is worth noting these are not legal in road races. With their striking looks appearing very skinny from the front and fat from the side this is a bike to stand out from the crowd on as you silently whizz by them all down the hill.
