BEST FOR: Connoisseurs.

THE TEST: The Goomah is a lot like über-high-end clothing manufacturer Assos’s apparel: beautifully crafted, expensive, and oddly named. It might look like a flat-out race bike, but the oversize, shaped carbon tubing and the slight arc in the top tube make for a refined and supple ride. Still, with a huge BB30 bottom-bracket area and an asymmetric rear triangle for incredible power transfer, the bike was plenty fast and efficient. “Forget cake, let them ride Assos,” said one rider.

THE VERDICT: A boutique item (production is limited to 400) for those who want something that most can’t have. 14 lbs
