The best bikes in the Tour de France 2021

Road 25/06/21 17:23 Migue A.

With just a few hours before the start of the 2021 Tour de France, we have tried to rescue the best bikes that will take the start. Here are the 5 most interesting bikes of this year's edition of the round of France.


Tour de France 2021 is here

It's all to play for in a 2021 Tour de France that has a fairly short list of favourites. Pogacar starts as the clear profile to beat after his brilliant victory last year; Roglic seems really the only rival who can stand up to him. Behind both of them, a fairly dense cast ranging from riders who already know what it means to win the Tour, such as Thomas, to real unknowns, such as Miguel Angel Lopez.


In any case, the 2021 Tour de France will also see the best of the best when it comes to road bikes. Brands and manufacturers do not miss the opportunity to give themselves publicity and gain TV time at the world's most important road stage race.

We have tried to select the five most interesting bikes for the 2021 Tour de France. It wasn't easy, but this is our list.

5 top bikes for the 2021 Tour de France

Pinarello Dogma F – Team Ineos Grenadiers

We had the good news just a few hours ago that Pinarello has finally launched its new Dogma F for this Tour de France 2021. We had even seen Carapaz training with it, but it still remained to be seen if it was really ready to compete. And it is, no doubt.


The new Pinarello Dogma F has drastically reduced the weight of all its components and the frame. Disc brakes are now fitted, although it remains to be seen which option Ineos will opt for. The fork has also been redesigned.


Cervélo R5, S5 and R6 – Jumbo Visma

It will be Jumbo Visma's first Grand Tour away from Bianchi, a partnership that has given many glorious afternoons. Now, with Cervélo, we will see Roglic fighting for the final victory. What we don't know is which models will end up taking the yellow spot in the peloton.


The R5 for uphill seems clear. The S5 for flat and time trial also. The question is perhaps to see if the R6, yet to be discovered, will end up being part of this line-up. While waiting for the daisy to be plucked, we will see Cervélo compete for the chance to win a Tour after a few years away from the taste of victory in Paris.


Specialized Tarmac SL7 – Deceuninck Quick Step and Bora Hansgrohe

Specialized will keep its two top stars from last year. Deceuninck and Bora will continue to ride the Tarmac SL7, Alaphilippe and Sagan will ride Shimano and 4iii power meters, Roval wheels and a lot of ambition to fight for the overall and the green jersey respectively.


The latter will try to make up for last year's slip-up to claim his eighth green and continue the tendency he brings from the Giro.


Cannondale SystemSix and SuperSix – Education First

Cannondale arrives at the Tour with the SystemSix and SuperSix and with Education First. It is true that this bike has hardly undergone any major changes in the last year.


Shimano for the drivetrain, Vittoria for the tyres, Vision wheels and FSA power meters make up this duo that will try to make its mark on the stage victories and especially during the first ten days of the 2021 Tour de France.


Canyon Aeroad and Ultimate – Movistar

Movistar presents a good team. Miguel Ángel López looks set to be the leader of a squad that is starting to outgrow winning team races.


SRAM in its Aeroad and Ultimate models, the latter for the mountain stages.
