Last Update September 14th, 2016 When you don’t just stick to one style of riding when you get on your bike, a hybrid model is probably at the top of your wish list. If you want to learn more about what a hybrid bike is, check out our post called, “What Is a Hybrid Bike?” A hybrid bike does an excellent job of catering to the multiple needs of the rider instead of focusing on one. So, if you want a bike that can handle country and city roads, mountain trails and rough terrain, as well as carry items and maneuver when touring around new places, a hybrid is right up your alley. You have so much freedom with a hybrid bike because you aren’t stuck with just one category of riding. Particularly when it comes to a versatile hybrid, you want a bike that is light, easy to carry, and easy to travel with. Here are some of your best options when you’re searching for the lightest hybrid bike and what each has to offer.
You’ll enjoy comfortable and precise handling because of the quality suspension fork and aluminum frame. The shifter for the 21-speed bike makes gear shifting a breeze, and the brakes are incredibly reliable and easy to apply as they are made from alloy. The seat is comfortable for both short and long rides and has suspensions springs to help when hitting bumps in the road. You’ll enjoy the speed and smoothness this bike has to offer. The package weight comes in at forty-six pounds, and once the bike is assembled (which is quite simple for even beginners), you’ll immediately notice the lightweight feel. You can use this bike for multiple outdoor adventures, whether it’s pulling a cart for your kids to ride in behind you, or if you just want to go for a few miles to get some fresh air on a back road.
This lightweight bike is an excellent choice for someone that likes to take a casual ride or wants to start commuting to work. It’s designed for beginners to get used to riding a bike on a regular basis, but it is also a favorite of novices who enjoy getting out for a light ride every now and then. It offers 21 speeds that are quick and easy to shift between. The linear pull breaks will give you confidence when stopping, so you can rely on the durable parts to work as you are operating them. The aluminum frame can be carried up steps with little effort, and the design is clean and elegant for those who don’t want something too flashy. You can also look at the frame as a canvas to add your own touches to it as well. The shipping weight comes in at 44.6 pounds, making it easy for most people to move the box without help. The weight of the bike will come in even lower once you’ve completed the simple assembly. The price is fantastic for the features offered.
If you’re looking for a hybrid bike that can handle just about everything, this Diamondback has got you covered. With the durable aluminum hybrid frame built for sporting around, you’ll find that it’s very easy to maneuver. Shifting gears are seamless because of the high-quality 7-speed shifter. The front suspension is designed to handle dips and bumps in the road, whether you’re on city roads or mountain terrains. All of the features are easily accessible to make your riding experience even better than you thought possible. And the bike itself is stylish and sporty, so get ready for a few compliments to be thrown your way when you’re whizzing by. The aluminum frame provides you with the lightweight feel you expect to come with hybrid models. With a little effort, you can carry the bike up steps, put it on a bike rack, and push it when not on it. For the price of this hybrid bike, you just can’t beat the quality features, comfort, and design.
This durable hybrid bike can take you down winding rural roads or busy city streets. You’ll love that the stylish black design won’t ever rust because the alloy components are all rust resistant. This will give the bike more longevity and keep it looking new, even after you’ve put a few hundred miles on it. The ride is exceptional due to the RST suspension fork being shock absorbent, making those bumps in the road gentler on the body and easier to handle. The alloy frame is reliable and exceptionally light when carrying the bike. This bike can go for hours if you want to take it for longer rides through the mountains, and it’s also great for those short trips around town.
