This sleek, stiff racer is so smooth it's like a BMW on the autobahnat lightning-fast speeds, it feels like you're hardly moving at all. Dura-Ace shifting is precise, and the Mavic Ksyrium SL wheel set and Vittoria Diamonte Pro Light tires stick to any surface. 15.7 lbs; fujibikes.com
Bonus: Race-specific geometry loves to cornerquickly.
Bummer: Strange but true: This bike is so wispy that our smallest riders felt sluggish on the descents.
