Rough mountain roads? Achy back? If you experience either on a regular basis, consider the GTR. This full-carbon frame muted high-frequency vibrations and bigger hits, and took the sting out of descents that normally would’ve had us cringing. But because it comes equipped with a compact crank (low gears for climbing) and tough Shimano 105 wheelset, the GTR is no slouch on the ups either. “It stays quiet and turned safely on rough pavement,” said one tester. “It’s a little heavier than the pricier models, but it’s great for the money.” $2,299; 18.8 lbs (56cm); gtbicycles.com
