The best bicycles from 1500 to 3500 €

Are you looking for a versatile and well-equipped road bike? Here are the best bikes from 1500 to 3500 €.

Origin Axxome 250

– Marc: Axxome II 250 Carbon

– Group: Campagnolo Centaur 11 speeds.

– Fork: Origin Axxome II Carbon

– Rhodes: Campagnolo Calima C17

– Tires: Continental Ultra Sport 25

– Weight: 7.777 kg

– Price: 1851 €

Our opinion: With its all-carbon frame and fork, the Origin Axxome 250 weighs only 7,777 pounds on the scales. It is equipped with Campagnolo Centaur. It is the equivalent of the Shimano 105. Lighter than its direct competitor, the Centaur is also more expensive. The Origine configurator allows you to customize the front and rear derailleurs of the Axxome 250. For 105 derailleurs, it has 75 grams more and 32 € less. At Ultegra, it will be 91 grams less for an additional € 291. Despite various colors and decorations to customize the frame, it is still pretty basic.

The majority: The price. Source configurator.

Minors: Relatively simple frame.

Canyon Ultimate CF SL 8

  • Marc: Canyon Ultimate CF SL Carbon
  • Group: Shimano Ultegra R8000
  • Fork: Canyon F35 CF SLX Carbon
  • Rhodes: DT Swiss P 1800 Spline
  • Tires: Continental Grand Prix 5000
  • Weight: 7.02 kg
  • Price: € 2399

Our opinion: Once again, Canyon offers a great value bike. Thanks to its carbon frame and fork, as well as its DT Swiss wheels, the Canyon Ultimate CF SL 8 only weighs 7.02 kg on the scale, which is the lightest bike offered without this item. All equipped with Shimano Ultegra and for less than € 2400. From our point of view, if the black frame is successful, the light blue looks a little worse.

The + : The price. The weight. Equipped with Shimano Ultegra.

The – : The blue frame leaves us unsatisfied.

In addition to the frame, the 3 colors available have a special hit. Although white is messy, the color White-Iris is no less successful. Note that the fork is not entirely carbon. Pretty disappointing for a high end bike like theORCA M20.

  • SHIMANO Ultegra disc brakes, RT800 rotors
  • Wheels: SR500
  • Tires: Vittoria Zaffiro Pro

Our opinion: With its Teammachine SLR Disk carbon fork, the BMC Teammachine ALR ONE 2022 guarantees user comfort. With a Shimano Ultegra group and Shimano RT800 Rotors disc brakes, the bike is well equipped. On the other hand, BMC has opted for an aluminum frame. A choice that penalizes the weight of the bike: 8.65 kilos. Quite substantial for a bike offered at € 2999.

  • Wheels: Syncros RP2.0 Disc
  • Tires: Schwalbe ONE Fold 700x32C
  • Weight: 8.40 kg
  • Price: € 2999

Our opinion: With its all-carbon frame and fork, this Scott ADDICT 20 CARBON BLACK is designed for cyclists looking for comfort. With a Shimano Ultegra group and Shimano BR-R8070 Hyd.Disc disc brakes, this bike is no less qualitative. With 32C tires, it’s not a bike designed for racing, but for long endurance outings to accumulate miles.

The +: Comfort. Disc brakes and Shimano Ultegra

The -: Just one color to choose from

Look 765 OPTIMUM BRIGHT WHITE PROTEAM DISC

  • Panel: 765 OPTIMUM carbon panel with “CARBON + FLAX FIBER” technology.

Our opinion: The 765 OPTIMUM DISC PROTEAM WHITE GLOSSY is a good compromise between performance and comfort. With its carbon frame and fork, the Ultegra group and the disc brakes, all for just over 8 kilos, it’s hard to find a negative point. With “CARBON + FLAX FIBER” technology, the bike absorbs shocks better for maximum comfort during your outings. If we want to be demanding, even if the color of the frame is successful, we would have preferred to have different colors to choose from, like what Trek, Canyon or Orbea do.

The +: Comfort. CARBON + LINEN FIBER technology.

The -: A color

Lapierre Pulsium SAT 6.0 Disc 2022

Our opinion: As usual, the French brand Lapierre offers a bicycle with a frame equipped with shock absorption technology (SAT). It is a technology that absorbs deformations between the seat tube and the upper tube of the frame, which allows it to better absorb shocks. Aesthetically, this technology can be seen in the particular shape of the frame at the level of the chair.
