BEST FOR: Long hauls. THE TEST: The Carbon Capri is a light (just over 17 pounds in size 53) and compliant cruiser that rides like an easy chair. The carbon frame and fork diffuse road noise admirably, and the long headtube and slightly more upright position lets riders enjoy the scenery. “I felt as good at mile 90 as I did at mile 20—no sore neck or shoulders. I could just cruise,” said one tester post-century. Shimano Ultegra and 105 components are light, and they’ll last for many miles and seasons. THE VERDICT: A supple ride that’s still fast enough to push the pace. 17.7 lbs
