If you have been keeping up to date with the latest articles from myself here on VehicleHelp.com, you will be aware of the latest miniseries I am writing all about the various colors that you can have on your bike.
So far we have covered colors like purple, yellow, blue, green, and black. Today we will be sticking with the more standard themes by taking a look at the 7 best bikes available in white.
To some it may seem like a rather boring choice to have a white bike with them often being harder to clean after a tough day out, this being said they are also among the sleekest of bikes on the market right now.
Let’s get to it.
1. Specialized Tarmac SL7 Pro Road Bike
We start our list today with a premium road bike from US brand Specialized, the quite marvellous Tarmac SL7 road bike.
As far as premium bikes from Specialized go, the Tarmac is towards the upper echelons of the models that they produce but is not quite as expensive as some of the others with it retailing at around $9,000 currently.
The Tarmac SL7 is designed to be aerodynamic and is the perfect kind of bike for those wanting to improve both their sprinting and climbing on the road.
Specialized have worked alongside industry experts and professionals to design a so called ‘Rider First’ design that had optimised the geometry of the frame for comfort and speed in equal measure.
In terms of the some of the other features on the Tarmac SL7, it has a top of the range SRAM groupset that will allow for seamless shifting at high speeds.
The bike has been modelled on a previous Specialized model, the Venge and is the natural successor for anyone that has owned that bike.
Thanks to the research conducted, the Tarmac SL7 has a more natural cable routing, stem placement, and rounded handlebars. All of these go some way to making this an excellent all-rounder kind of bike.

2. Orbea Avant H60-D Disc Road Bike
Staying in the realms of road bikes, next up we have a model from one of the most luxurious bike companies in the world but maybe one you aren’t particularly familiar with in the US.
The Orbea Avant H60 is manufactured by Spanish brand Orbea and is one of their more standard models when compared to the higher specification models that they also produce.
Coming in at just under $900, the Avant is aimed at the intermediate level bike rider that perhaps wants to push the boat out after falling in love with the sport.
This bike prides itself on being versatile, with its aluminium frame being rigid enough to support the rider on any terrain.
Orbea also design their bikes with comfort in mind and the Avant is optimised for this purpose by having a specially designed frame that creates a smaller rear triangle on the bike, this improves both the comfort and the handling of the bike.
This bike also features an increased tyre clearance of 35mm that means riders can attach larger tyres if the desire, which can allow for increased grip and speed if needed.

3. Specialized S-Works Turbo Levo Carbon Electric Mountain Bike
Moving off the road and onto the trails, we have another Specialized bike on our list. The title is somewhat of a mouthful for this one, however it does highlight the range of features and abilities that the Specialized S-Works Turbo Levo Carbon Electric Mountain Bike has.
With this being an electric mountain bike, the logical place to start is with that. The bike features a powerful motor that is said to be able to provide the rider with up to 410% more power than pedalling alone at times. Alongside this, the Turbo battery can hold up to 700Wh and has a short charging time of just 3.5 hours.
In terms of the standard bike features, the Turbo Levo is of course fully carbon built which makes the bike considerably lighter than many of its competitors. Being an S-Works model, the bike is amongst the best that Specialized produce with them only giving the S-Works title to their most premium designs.
The only real sticking point surrounding the Turbo Levo is the price with it coming in at a staggering $13,000 that makes it merely a pipe dream for most of us if you can afford this though I would certainly recommend it.

4. Trek Domane AL 3 Disc Sportive Road Bike
Back onto the road for the fourth bike on our list, and we are staying with the US theme and the Trek Domane AL 3 Disc Sportive Road Bike. You may well be familiar with the Domane range as it is one of the flagship models that Trek currently produce.
The AL 3 is actually towards the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to Domane’s and this is not a problem for those wanting to own a premium name without spending insane amounts of money.
This version of the Domane will only set you back around $1000 compared to the $13,000 that the highest specification model would.
There are of course some compromises that come with buying the lower spec model, mainly that you do not get the carbon frame that the more expensive Domane’s do. The AL 3 is constructed from an aluminium frame that is heavier, yet still good for the price paid.
You do still get a full Shimano gearing and braking system as standard, with the bike having 18 different speeds for you to shift into. Overall, this is still a great bike.

5. Wethepeople Atlas BMX
We have mainly been discussing road and mountain bikes so far in this piece, so I thought it was time to include a BMX for those of you interested in this discipline.
American brand Wethepeople are one of the most popular manufacturers of BMX bikes anywhere in the world and it is clear to see why!
I may not be a connoisseur when it comes to BMX bikes, but the Atlas is a great choice of premium BMX for anyone wanting to take the discipline more seriously that a mere hop around your local park.
The Atlas is one of Wethepeople’s most popular models, with it retailing for less than $600 these days. In typical American fashion, the mantra of the Atlas is that bigger is better and I am inclined to agree in this sense. The 24” wheels give the bike a classic feel and allows the riders to cruise around with ease.
For me, the only real negative of the bike is that all of the components are made or sourced by Wethepeople and not from more well-respected companies such as Shimano. It is not a major problem though as they are still clearly a good standard.

6. Cube Agree C62 Road Bike
Back onto the road now and to German brand Cube, the Cube Agree C62 is one of their most premium models and will set you back around $3000.
This is actually quite a good price for a premium road bike, especially when we compare it to some of the other bikes in this piece.
The Cube C62 is a bike made for speed, which is something I really like to see. The frame is fully constructed from carbon fibre and has a geometry that is optimised for aerodynamic performance.
This is the kind of bike that makes you question whether choosing a bike from a more well-known brand is actually worth the money, because the Agree has most of the premium features found on its competitors for a much lower price.
With this in mind, the Agree features Shimano gears and brakes (hydraulic disc brakes to be specific). It also comes with Continental tyres fitted as standard, with these also being optimised for racing.
The Agree may not be one for professionals, but for those wanting to take up racing Sportives or local crit races it is the perfect choice.

7. Specialized Rockhopper Sport Mountain Bike
It is ones again back to Specialized for the final bike of this piece, the fabled Rockhopper Sport mountain bike that I have previously discussed in my piece about the best bikes available in green. With this in mind, I am going to focus on the color of this model.
The Rockhopper sport comes in a crisp mountain white and turquoise colorway that strikes the perfect balance between a muted color and sleek design. This bike will only set you back around $450 too.
- Well Known Brand
- Aluminium Frame
