The SAVA Warwinds 3.0 uses a high quality Japanese carbon fiber frame. This frame curves in several areas adding to the space age look of this bike. The frame is a combination of grey, black and silver with some branding on several areas. The bike weighs a cool 9.6kgs so it’s one of the lightest reviewed to date. With such a lightweight road bike you can be sure you’re not dragging extra weight with you when travelling up hills and guarantees a power efficient ride. The frame isn’t the only area of the bike that is made from carbon fiber, the fork and seat post are both carbon fiber and go to show that the bike was designed with minimum weight in mind. The dropped handlebars on the SAVA Warwinds 3.0 are made from aluminium and feature the Shimano Sora 3000 derailleur shifters linked to the Shimano Sora 18 speed derailleur gear system. This gives the rider full control over the gearing mechanism and offers smooth transitioning between gears. The SAVA Warwinds 3.0 road bike come with aluminium wheels with 40mm double walled rims.

his bike is a favourite here, it comes with 3 years warranty on the frame and 6 months warranty on the components and is available in blue, orange or red.

he Extrbici XC700 road bike has a lightweight aluminium alloy frame. The road bikes fork is also aluminium ally as well as the bikes pedals. Everything on this bike is designed to be light and help the bike be fast and agile. The bike weighs in at 15kgs so is pretty much average when it comes to road bike weight. The Extrbici XC700 is available in an array of impressive colors, none more impressive than the racing red we’ve provided in the photo. The frame, fork and professional road saddle are all in red as well as the wheel frame.

The Tommaso Imola Endurance road bike has a black and white body, the frame of the bike differs in size throughout it’s design. Some beams expand to form a wedge like shape rather than sticking with your traditional single diameter pipe. This adds a sharpness to the bikes design that seems to be quite common with Tommaso bikes. The bike weighs in at 25 lbs which is a nice weight for a mid range road bike. The Tommaso Imola Endurance road bike has drop handlebars which help with positioning on the riders hands into an aerodynamic stance. The brakes and shifters are also easily accessible.  The Tommaso Imola Endurance road bike comes with a tough yet comfortable saddle, from first impressions alone it seems the saddle will last a long time. The Tommaso brand pride themselves on providing quality components as standard. Thats why the Imola comes with a full Shimano Claris R2000 groupset.

What To Expect

With a nice budget of $1000 you can start to expect some pretty good standards. We’d like to see aluminium frames and forks on display as well as very well manufactured gear systems. Design is something we can begin to focus on as most of these bikes will be on the money in terms of components and ride quality.

Quality

As mentioned above we’d hope to see a high quality frame being used on these bikes. The bikes above features aluminium frames and some have carbon forks so lightweight goes without saying. These bikes ooze quality from every element and can really start to deliver you a well delivered road bike.

Common Features

The common feature with these bikes are the aluminium frames and branded tyres. We’ve increased our budget enough that we’re starting to see high quality components being used on these road bikes.

Additional Features

Something that isn’t so common on the lower models is carbon components. We are starting to see carbon composite forks used in these bikes as more and more effort is made to reduce weight and drag.

Worth It?

If you’re looking for a road bike that will give you premium features and return comfortable reliable rides then absolutely. However considering our budget is starting to enter serious figures, if you’re just starting out then perhaps these bikes are a little too much of an investment. For the semi professional or long term biker these bikes are a great choice, unless you have the budget available for the higher models that is.
