Each year, we spend a week testing dozens of road bikes at Outside's annual bike test in search of the smoothest rides and best new technology. This year's test was held in Tucson, Arizona, where we rode everything from 7,000 feet alpine ascents to desert circuits and gravel roads. Watch to see which 2018 road bike came out on top as our testers' favorite.
