Testers praised the Targa Ascent's bomber construction, but flat-out raved about its uphill performance: A free-pivot mode offers touring without resistance, which means you'll conserve power for that extra lap. 3.1 lbs; genuineguidegear.com

 

Bonus: The heel piece flips vertically to serve as the climbing bar.

 

Bummer: Difficult to switch it into touring mode with your pole.
