Is every stop light or crosswalk line a chance to win? Are standing-start sprints and total concentration on your commute to work your thing? If so, the Yamaha Urban Rush pedal-assist drop bar road bike is just right for you. It offers a perfect balance of power, stiffness, and speed in a sleek road bike chassis. At the heart of Urban Rush is Yamaha’s awesome PWSeries SE center mount drive unit. Integrated to the bottom bracket, the drive unit provides a low center of gravity for exceptional handling. Yamaha’s unique side docking battery mount allows for a frame design with a lower stand-over height for added convenience when coming to a stop. While providing the smooth power assist expected by many e-bike users, Yamaha’s systems are equipped with powerful support and a natural, organic pedal-assist feel even in the high-speed setting. The 500 Watt-hour Lithium-ion battery pack provides reliable and long-lasting energy to power your rides, and when it’s time to replenish you can quickly charge the battery pack on or off the bike with the high-speed charger. Exclusive to Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles is a speed sensor engineered into the rear hub. Clean, protected, and out of sight, this sensor recognizes the slightest change in bicycle speed and helps adjust motor input to deliver a smooth and natural power assist feel for the ultimate ride experience. And for those riders who love ride information, the LCD multi-function display comes loaded with a full suite of functions, including speedometer, average speed, maximum speed, odometer, battery range, cadence, and stopwatch. The Urban Rush's traditional road handlebars allow for a variety of hand positions while maximizing aerodynamic efficiency for cruising quickly through town. The aluminum frame and fork have internal routing that keeps cables neatly hidden and protected. Shimano’s durable 10-speed Tiagra drivetrain handles shifting duties, and the double chainring ensures optimum gear range to conquer any climb your commute presents. Shimano Tiagra hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm center lock rotors ensure strong, confident braking in all conditions. Speaking of all conditions, the Urban Rush’s frame and fork have mounting tabs for adding on accessories such as fenders or a rear rack, to help dial in your ultimate commuter. To increase your safety and low-light visibility, it's equipped with a powerful LED headlight, with an on/off button built into the multi-function display for easy access while riding. To up your commute game and enjoy the thrill of speed, the Urban Rush is the ultimate in road bike power, style, and performance.
Do the math. There's a lot more of the world that's unpaved than there is perfect tarmac. The answer? The Diverge Sport A1 from Specialized, a full capable street, dirt road, gravel path, anywhere-you-want-to-ride exploration machine. Specialized A1 aluminum makes for a light, fast frame and a FACT carbon fork soaks up the road chatter out front. Some days it feels like you can't find a flat bit of ground to pedal across, and that's when Shimano's 18-speed Sora drivetrain shines. Hills, flats, and descents, it has the quick-shifting, wide gear range performance it takes to conquer any and all roads, while a pair of Tektro disc brakes put the stops to the fun when needed. And a full selection of Specialized components, including a supportive Body Geometry saddle, check the final boxes.
Narrowing down a bike that can do it all used to be tough going. Sure, some work well as a road bike and a 'cross bike, while others are good at commuting and some short road riding, but until the Diverge, nothing out there was astute at every kind of riding subject. The Diverge E5 Comp, however, is made for exploring new roads, commuting to class, and everything in between. It redefines what a road bike can do, so ride wherever you want—this bike doesn't take "no" for an answer. The Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, we took your number one request into account—tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x38mm tires with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tire clearance, weight was a large factor in the development and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix, we developed an E5 Premium Aluminum frame that's plenty light, certainly stiff for hard efforts, and undeniable tough. Next up, we moved away from a traditional 'cross geometry, instead opting for something that hasn't been seen before—our Open Road Geometry. You can think of it as a road version of modern trail bike geometry. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts. The geo features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimeter lower than the previous Diverge, a slacked-out head tube angle, short chainstays, and a short wheelbase. These changes make for a bike that's not only fun in the dirt but also performs well on the road. And while riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure, there's only so much that wider tires with lower pressures can absorb, in terms of bumps. With this in mind, we implemented a new version of our Future Shock into the Diverge design. It not only soaks up bumps with ease but also adds the benefit of extremely predictable handling. That's because the wheelbase isn't lengthening when you hit a bump, so the front end of the Diverge keeps the same effective head tube angle. In other words, when you dive hard into a turn, you won't be surprised by under-steer or sloppy handling. Unlike the original Future Shock (found on the Roubaix), the Diverge's version features a progressive spring that makes this technology more suitable for off-road applications, where stiffer suspension is often needed to soak-up larger bumps and obstacles. Adding to its multifaceted talents, we topped it off with three water bottle mounts, plus mounts for racks and fenders. For the spec, we wanted to make sure that it shifted crisply and braked smoothly mile after mile, so you'll find a crisp and reliable Shimano 105 groupset, hassle-free Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes, and an Axis Sport Disc wheelset. - Our Premium E5 Aluminum frameset features our comfortable and confident Open Road Geometry, Future Shock Progressive suspension with 20mm of travel, and front/rear thru-axles, making it the ultimate tool for your next adventure. - The lightweight FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, aiding in handling and a light overall weight. - With Shimano 105 taking the reins on shifting, you'll experience crisp shifts for years to come.
Designed and developed for aspiring riders looking to elevate their experience on the road, Contend offers responsive acceleration and a more endurance-oriented rider position.
