Men’s hybrid bikes provide a great entry-point into the world of cycling and their unique combination of comfort, efficiency, and control across a variety of terrains makes them an extremely popular choice for both novice and fitness riders. Anyone looking for a lightweight leisure bike to embark upon many different types of ride can benefit from this type of bike. Typically such bikes will be used for casual day trips out with friends or family, spontaneous after work rides, the commute into work or even a spot of light touring.
They can range in price from anywhere between a couple of hundred pounds and a couple of thousand. How much you spend affects the quality of the components used to make up the bike. Higher quality components result in much improved performance, longevity, reliability, durability, and a lighter bike. For instance, a bike that costs a couple of hundred pounds will be manufactured using cheaper materials which will impact upon the bike’s performance and durability.
A mid-ranged men’s hybrid bike will cost somewhere in the region of £700 to £1000. At this price point you can expect a good quality, lightweight aluminium frame, reliable entry-level wheelset and dependable groupset. We have chosen to equip our men’s hybrid bikes with Shimano’s Claris groupset due to its combination of value and performance.
