Best Track Bike: T°RED Bikes
Track bikes are built for speed, stiffness, and agility, so it’s no surprise that this T°RED Bikes Manaia Pista took the prize for Best Track Bike. The bike itself belongs to France’s Benjamin Thomas, a double world champion in 2017. Made with TIG-welded aluminum, it’s been designed with a shape that can withstand the huge amounts of power produced by Thomas during sprints. The seat stays are made in one piece then welded onto the front of the seat tube, and the chainstays extend along the entire length of the dropouts—both for increased stiffness and responsiveness. Aside from graphics that highlight Thomas’ world championships, the rest of the frame is left unpainted for a utilitarian finish that highlights the material itself.
