WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN IT COMES TO WHEELS?
In a nutshell:
- Carbon rims: light and fast, but with weaknesses in braking behaviour
- Aluminium rims installed in every price category
- Higher rim = higher aerodynamics and stability
If you want to buy an ultimate racing machine, it’s hard to get past carbon rims. Thanks to their extremely low weight, these are a guarantee for high speeds. But in addition to their expensive acquisition costs, rims made of carbon also have the disadvantage of poorer braking behaviour in wet conditions.
It is not without reason that even high-end road bikes are sometimes equipped with high-quality aluminium rims.
An important factor: the rim height. The higher the rim, the higher its weight and the greater the susceptibility to crosswinds.
At the same time, however, their aerodynamics and stability are also improved. Heavier riders in particular should go for the higher rim in case of doubt.
THE TYRES OF A GIANT ROAD BIKE – WHAT YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO
In a nutshell:
- Pay attention to correct tire pressure
- Good tyres are lightweight and offer low rolling resistance
- Road bikes from Giant equipped with 23 or 25 mm tyres
First of all: Always pay attention to the correct tire pressure – this is the only way the tyres bring all their strengths to the asphalt! But what makes a good tyre? For example, the lowest possible rolling resistance, but also a high level of puncture protection and low weight.
Our Giant road bikes are equipped with 23 or 25 mm tyres. The difference: While the narrower tyres are usually slightly lighter, the wide tyres offer less rolling resistance and greater driving comfort. It’s best to choose the tyres you feel most comfortable with.
ALUMINUM OR CARBON – WHICH FRAME SHOULD A GIANT ROAD BIKE HAVE?
In a nutshell:
- Aluminium or carbon: a question of money
- Carbon with the better properties
- Aluminium: good choice for entry-level and mid-range bikes
Do you prefer aluminium or carbon? This question drives many potential road bike buyers crazy. The answer is relatively simple: If your wallet allows, opt for a carbon frame. This not only has a higher stiffness, but is also significantly lighter and offers good vibration damping.
However, you should note that carbon frames are only worthwhile for road bikes well over 1500 euros. Cheaper bikes are often equipped with cheap carbon frames, which technically hardly come close to good aluminium frames.
In addition, manufacturers often save on the rest of the bike’s equipment. Giant road bikes with carbon frames are available in our online shop from about 2000 euros.
WHAT SHOULD THE HANDLEBARS OF A GIANT ROAD BIKE BE LIKE?
In a nutshell:
- Aluminium handlebars with solid riding characteristics
- Carbon handlebars technically superior, but very expensive
- Ideal seating position due to a stem
Especially for entry-level and mid-range bikes, aluminium is the dominant handlebar material. It is reliable and offers solid driving characteristics. Carbon handlebars are usually only installed from a price category of 2500 euros and more.
But you also get a lot of advantages: The handlebars are very light and dampen vibrations excellently. Our Giant road bikes also have carbon handlebars in the high price segment.
Almost more important than the material: the fit of the handlebars. If it doesn’t fit your hands or the physiognomy of your body, you’ll have to compromise heavily on riding comfort. A suitable stem will help you find your ideal seating position.
WHAT GEARS SHOULD A GOOD GIANT ROAD BIKE HAVE?
In a nutshell:
- Each circuit has its own special features
- Correct circuit depends on personal preference
- Electronic shifting systems installed in top models
Each circuit has its own characteristics and distinctive features. Especially when it comes to ergonomics and the handling of the gear levers, the differences are noticeable. Which gears you should choose for your road bike depends primarily on your preferences.
So it may well be that you drive better with a low-cost shifting system than with an expensive one. Our advice: Try out different circuits!
Our Giant road bikes are equipped with Shimano gears. The majority of the bikes rely on manual derailleur gears, only the top models have a top-class electronic shifting system installed with the Shimano Dura Ace Di2.
