Top 2 Best Carbon Road Bikes Under £1500 (January 2021)
The latest generation of carbon road bikes under £1500 offer a fantastic combination of performance and value. It’s a very good material for bike frames, both light and stiff, two very desirable features in a bike frame. Modern carbon frames are comfortable as well. Gone are the days when you would expect a harsh ride from a carbon bike.
Entry-level carbon road bikes normally offer slightly less exotic groupsets and components. Yet tend to feature very well-engineered frames. Look for a carbon frame instead of steel as it’ll be almost as strong but just a fraction of the weight.
Twitter Sniper 2.0
- ✔ High Strength Carbon Fiber Frame And Fork
- ✔ 16 Speed Shimano Gearing System
- ✔ Powerful Hydraulic Disc Brakes
- ✔ Internal Cable Routing
This is a really nice looking bike from Twitter Bikes. The Sniper 2.0 road bike is a great bike. It offers a smooth ride and comes with an array of good quality components.
The disc brakes on the Sniper 2.0 are responsive and firm when applied. They come with built in heatsinks to avoid overheating when used. The Shimano 16 speed gearing system is smooth when changing gears with little vibration.
The carbon fiber frame looks stunning, we really like the decal design and colour. The Sniper 2.0 is finished off with a aerodynamic racing saddle and dropped handlebars.
The bike arrives in an ‘almost complete’ state. Requiring some minor construction to complete the build. Overall we really like this bike, it’s a great alternative to some of the more expensive brands on the market.
As Twitter Bikes themselves say about the Sniper 2.0 carbon road bike. – “We provide you with the perfect ride no matter if you are a bike commuter or Professional Entry-level Racer, we got you covered.”
Some previous customer reviews show that the bike has been well received. We’re confident it’s a solid bike and so we’ve added it to our recommendation list.
SAVA Warwind 5.0
- ✔ Internal Cable Routing
- ✔ Shimano 105 22-Speed Derailleur System
- ✔ Aluminium Pedals Included
- ✔ Easy to Assemble
A fantastic bike that offers some performance without paying through the nose for it. Finding a road bike that has a carbon fiber frame for a fair price is tough these days. Especially since the summer rush on bikes. We saw many retailers sell out and those few that remained in stock saw prices rise in accordance with demand.
The SAVA Warwind 5.0 was no different. Joy however, that this carbon bike is now back in stock and ready for your cycling pleasure.
The high quality carbon fiber frame uses Japanese materials. The frame looks fantastic. It has a futuristic look to it, with the curves in certain areas giving a space age feel to the bike. A lightweight frame is a must for most riders. Less weight means you’ll have less drag when powering up hills. When you pair the carbon frame with the fork and seat post which are also both carbon fiber. You end up with a nice light setup.
The handlebars on the Warwind 5.0 are made of aluminium. Having Shimano 105 22-Speed derailleur shifters mounted at a very ergonomically pleasing position helps for a comfortable ride.
The standard saddle that comes with the Warwind 5.0 is also made for speed. It’s ultra thin design allows the rider to sit quite comfortably and comes with the usual adjustable features. Helping you find the perfect setup for your personal preferences. The saddle has been designed for long distance travel which helps if you’re planning on using this bike for commuting or long weekend rides.
The braking system installed might not be the ‘disc brakes’ that some more expensive models provide. However the brakes are responsive and aren’t an area to be worried about on the Warwind 5.0. Just keep an eye on the pads, make sure you’re not running them too low. Correctly configured and aligned V brakes are perfectly acceptable as long as they are maintained.
Overall, we think this bike is fantastic. Another success from the SAVA team.
