Ultimate Light Bikes Guide: Lightest Road, Mountain, And Electric Bikes in the World
One thing is undisputed in cycling technology: light bikes come with a huge number of benefits.
The most significant of these is that a lighter bike lends itself to faster acceleration and deceleration. If you’re tackling a climb, you simply have less weight to drag up the hill, and it makes it easier to fight gravity.
If you’re trying to slow down, you’re carrying less mass, and therefore less momentum, so can decelerate more sharply.
