The winter in the northern hemisphere can be grim for riding a bike outside, with grit on the roads and often wet or icy weather to contend with. All that rain, salt and mud can quickly turn your pride and joy into a creaking, crusty mess, which is something none of us want. This is why some cyclists switch to a dedicated winter bike when the wet and dark months roll around - to keep the most expensive parts lasting longer and ride something a little less bling and fancy through the grimmest time of the year. In this guide, we'll take a look at some of the best winter bikes that we've tested.


While 'winter bike' isn't necessarily a bike genre as such, there are key attributes that make a bike more suitable for riding on the road year-round. One of the most important ones is mudguard mounts - or if your bike is truly ready for winter off-the-peg, it might already come with mudguards fitted. 

Increasingly, though, you can find lightweight mudguards which don't require frame mounts to keep you dry, so even mudguard mounts aren't an absolute requisite for a winter road bike nowadays. 

In addition to mudguards, in the winter you might be after a little more comfort, as it's unlikely you'll be racing or training quite as hard outdoors as you might be indoors and during the summer. That's why endurance road bikes or gravel bikes are popular all-season bike choices.

These bike genres will usually offer a more stable ride feel, and often more tyre clearance. The extra clearance will allow you to fit plusher, wider road bike tyres for extra traction and comfort.

A relative newcomer to the bike market is the 'all-road bike', and anything described as such will often make a great winter bike because it will be equipped to deal with brief off-road forays, while being a bit more nimble than a dedicated gravel bike. 

> How to make the most of winter bike rides

Once you've got your winter bike sorted, you should of course equip it with the appropriate mudguards and good quality bike lights, so you can not only see in front of you, but also be seen. Then it's just a case of dressing right for the weather, and those winter miles are suddenly not all that bad!

Marin Gestalt XR

Best off-road winter bike
Buy now for £1499 from Winstanleys Bikes
Versatile but confidence inspiring geometry
Solid built kit for the cash
Great rear end compliance
Front end is a little harsh
Gear ratio favours speed on flats rather than climbing ability
Low standover limits space for frame bags

The rear end of the bike provides excellent compliance for added comfort during long rides, though the front end is somewhat stiff, which can lead to arm fatigue on rough trails.

The Gestalt XR comes with Shimano's gravel-specific GRX groupset and although the gearing is best suited for speed on flat terrain, it's a very smooth and reliable groupset. The bike's Vee tyre Co. tyres offer good grip and speed but best of all, there is a dropper post which enhances the bike's capability on the roughest roads.

Winter road bikes: everything you need to know

faq-icon
Is it ok to ride a bike through the winter?

Cycling through the winter is absolutely ok, and a great way to keep fit. You might want to re-think your kit choices and opt for thermal bib tights, good quality gloves and even winter cycling shoes, but other than those it's just a matter of taking it a little easier on the roads. 

Winter can be unpredictable and the roads pose more dangers in the form of ice and snow. If you are not familiar with the roads you're riding, you should take extra caution riding them in the winter as you never know if the temperatures have dropped below zero overnight and the shaded descent can have a sheet of black ice on it. It's always better to be safe than sorry. 

> How to ride your bike through the ice and snow

If your winter cycling is mostly commuting and you often ride in the early hours of the morning, you might want to check out proper studded winter cycling tyres, so that you can stay safe if there is regularly ice on your route through the winter. 

faq-icon
Do you need a winter bike?

This is the most common question asked about winter bikes, and the simple answer is (contrary to the title of this buyer's guide)... nope! You absolutely don't need a winter road bike, but they do offer some benefits. Whether one is suited for you depends on your riding preferences and to some extent, budget. 

If your road bike is a very expensive one and - to give one example - equipped with rim brakes, you might want a second bike to spend less on replacing components over the harshest weather months. Disc brakes on your winter bike will generally stop you better, even if rim brakes are perfectly fine for most riding conditions. If you ride on the roads, the grit and road salt will not only dirty up your bike's components, but possibly even the frame. This could become more costly tp maintain than just getting an affordable winter bike, if you ride a lot. 

All that said, it's absolutely fine to have one bike for the whole year. It's ever more common for racier road bikes to have the capacity for slightly wider tyres and mudguards, which means you can simply winter-proof them when the time comes. You could also just swap your pricier carbon wheels to alloy hoops, or a high-end cassette to a little more affordable one for the winter months and save money on the premium parts that way. 

faq-icon
What kind of bike is best for winter cycling?

We say the best winter bike is one that makes you want to go out riding in the winter months, of course! Usually, this means it should keep you comfortable and yet not be so sluggish that you feel it's an elephant compared to your summer steed. 

Endurance or all-road road bikes are great options, as are gravel bikes. They offer a little more relaxed geometry and more tyre clearance, and often compromise little on speed compared to a narrow-tyred race bikes on rough roads. 

faq-icon
Can I use carbon wheels on my winter road bike?

While cyclists used to be horrified at the idea of using fancy carbon rims in winter, the advent of disc brakes and the improvement in carbon fibre manufacturing means that in reality, there's no reason why carbon composite wheels will be any less suitable than alloy ones for winter riding when it comes to strength and braking performance.

The pads on rim brakes - that stop you by biting on the rim of the wheel - will degrade faster if used heavily over winter, so even ignoring the weaker braking performance, you'll spend more replacing pads by using carbon rim brake wheels over winter. If you run rim brakes on your winter bike, we'd strongly recommend switching to a set of alloy wheels for the winter to lengthen the lifespan of your carbon wheels and brake pads. 

If your bike has hydraulic disc brakes, there's much less reason to be concerned about wear because there's no direct contact between the brake pad and wheel. You or your mechanic will need to bleed your disc brakes occasionally and the brake pads will eventually need replacing, but these jobs don't need to be performed frequently. 

Even if you have a disc brake bike, you might still want to switch to a set of alloy wheels for the off-season. Gritty, dirty roads could cause some cosmetic damage to any wheel, and you'd probably rather it wasn't one that cost you a considerable amount. Also, if your carbon wheels have some depth for aerodynamic gains, this won't be preferable in winter where cold winds could push you around. A set of shallower wheels will be much more suitable for nasty winter weather, whether they're carbon or alloy. 

If we had unlimited budget, we'd love to ride carbon wheels all through winter - but the lower cost of modern all-season alloy rims, plus features like the shallower depth and suitability for wider tyres - means we'd probably go for the more affordable option if we could budget for a dedicated set of winter wheels. 

faq-icon
What about carbon frames? Is aluminium, carbon or steel better for a winter road bike?

Similarly to the conundrum of whether you should use carbon or alloy wheels in winter, modern manufacturing of the vast majority of bike frames made from carbon, aluminium, steel or titanium makes any of them perfectly suitable for year-round use, and which one you choose will come down to budget and preference. 

While manufacturers can do amazing things with aluminium tubes nowadays and there are some really high-end aluminium bikes, generally the most affordable road bike frames are made out of this material. If you can budget for a dedicated winter bike, you might choose aluminium just because it costs less, and you might not feel so bad about riding it in rubbish weather and getting it dirty. There is an old trope that aluminium frames are harsher than their carbon or steel equivalents, but they've improved no end in recent years and most riders will struggle to tell the difference. 

If you can only budget for one bike and that bike has a carbon frame, it's perfectly fine and should last you may years with regular cleaning and servicing. As we've covered numerous times in this guide, you might want to think about budgeting for some winter-specific kit and accessories to preserve the bike's lifespan - like winter wheels and tyres plus some quality mudguards - but really, the vast majority of modern road bikes will serve you perfectly well at any time of year. Just save the slick skinny tyres and deep wheels for summer!

A clubmate has just bought a Cannondale Topstone (alloy, with full length mudguards) as his "Winter / adventure bike". It looks nice, I'll be interested to see what he thinks of it.

The Fara all-road model had a pretty good review from Simon Willis here on youtube. If I had a big pot of cash to spend I'd definitely consider a Mason and Fairlight Strael. If spending a bit less then I'd want to try a Ribble Endurance or CGR 725 simply because I'm a sucker for skinny tubes and, well, steel is real. smiley

I've had the alloy version of the Ribble CGR for four years. Bought with mudgaurds that never come off and an added pannier rack for commuting, it has faired pretty well in all weathers and conditions and proven quite robust as it is often gets taken off the beaten track at weekends.

Articles such as this should show the bikes with full mudguards fitted to demostrate that they can actually take proper ones & not crappy clip ons.  It's just another list of bikes otherwise.

None of these, except for the Spa Cycles Elan, is suitable as a winter bike in a wet place like the UK (I'm from The Netherlands, I can relate).

Mudguards are simply a requirement. The article shoul be titled 'Best bikes that can be turned in to winter road bikes'.

Whilst I would agree that mudguards are a requirement for winter riding, that is well detailed in this Guide, and indeed there is even a link to a dedicated separate guide for bikes that are available supplied with mudguards. I would also add that mudguards can be bought and supplied pre-fitted for other bikes on the list, including the Mason and the Fara.

The Elan has reasonable mudguards (but could be better), the others pictured are pretty ineffective.

Is it sensible to recommend Vitus at the moment given any warranty or guarantee is likely going to be utterly pointless in a few months?

Vitus Razor costs less than half the price of the cheapest geared option, so it is still very attractive as an option, good to include it.

True. They're also promoting a Giant bike that has been replaced by a new model that is widely available. So there you go, not exactly a watertight list.
