The Best Shimano Di2 & SRAM AXS Bikes Marked Down Now

Bzzzt. Electronic drivetrains sound super cool when they shift, but they're also crisper, faster, and more precise. Di2 and AXS provide real performance gains, and with more marked down bikes at TPC, they're getting more attainable.

Electronic bike drivetrains have exploded in popularity over the last 10 years, and it's safe to say that it's game-changing technology for the sport. It provides tangible performance, reliability, and maintenance advantages. But the big thing holding back many riders from giving them a try is the extra cost. Luckily, we've been marking down road, gravel, and mountain bikes for spring, and many of these bikes come with Shimano Di2 or SRAM AXS drivetrains. While they’re still premium bikes, many have been marked down by hundreds, some even thousands of dollars. I’ve picked out some of the best discounted electronic-equipped bikes that will be perfect for riders who are feeling a bit electro-curious.

Road Bikes

2021 Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 - Med/Large

Giant TCR Advance SL

Price: $7,299.99 5,786.99
Drivetrain: SRAM Force AXS

When I think of value for performance, Giant is always the first brand I think of. They’re the biggest bike manufacturer in the world, so they have the resources and engineering firepower to build world-beaters that cost hundreds to thousands less than the competition. The light and stiff TCR Advanced SL is the same top-tier bike that the BikeExchange-Jayco World Tour team relies on to take on big races like the Tour de France.

2022 Specialized Allez Sprint - 58cm

Specialized Allez Sprint

Price: $5.099.99 3,838.94
Drivetrain: SRAM Force AXS

If you know me, you know I’m a total Allez Sprint fanboy. I’ve owned two myself, and might be looking for my third! The 2022 version saw a major redesign that made it stiffer and more aero. With the SmartWeld aluminum frame, it’s a favorite for crit and road racers who want a robust alloy bike that can easily hang with high-end carbon bikes but can also take some extra knocks when the racing gets rowdy.

2019 Scott Addict RC Premium Disc - Medium

Scott Addict RC

Price: $4,799.99 4,229.99
Drivetrain: Shimano Dura-Ace Di2

The Addict RC is Scott’s ultimate all-rounder, and over the years it’s amassed plenty of huge wins under legendary riders like Mark Cavendish and Annemiek van Vleuten. Now it’s the bike of choice for TEAM DSM, so expect some solid results this year too. It’s stiff, light, and uses some of the slippery aero tube shapes pioneered by the Scott Foil aero bike.

2021 Cannondale SuperSix Evo - 56cm

Cannondale SuperSix Evo

Price: $7,999.99 6,519.99
Drivetrain: Shimano Dura-Ace Di2

The last generation SuperSix Evo was one of the best bikes I’ve ridden. Like the Allez Sprint, it’s a bike I’ve owned multiple times, and it’s one that I’d recommend to all riders from weekend warriors to dedicated road racers. It’s more aero and more comfortable than ever. You can also fit wide tires (officially 30mm but I managed to fit 32mm) which really opens up options for unpaved exploration.

2021 3T Exploro RaceMax - 56cm

3T Exploro RaceMax

Price: $5,499.99 4,839.99
Drivetrain: SRAM Force / GX Eagle AXS

The Exploro was the first-ever aero gravel bike, and it proved its mettle all the way back in 2017 with an Unbound Gravel win. The RaceMax is the latest version, and with deep, sculpted aero tubes, it’s an aero weapon tailor-made for racing in America’s gravel heartland. 3T even tested the Exploro in the wind tunnel with mud-caked tires to ensure it stays slippery and efficient in real-world conditions.

2021 BMC Urs 01 Two - X-Large


Price: $4,899.99 3,887.99
Drivetrain: SRAM Force / X01 Eagle AXS

Urs stands for “UnReStricted” and it’s designed for the demands of “aggressive” gravel riding. The geometry takes cues from XC mountain bikes with a slack 70° head angle and a longer reach and wheelbase for stability and confidence on loose descents and technical trails. The rear end uses BMC's proprietary Micro Travel Technology (MTT) seat stays that soak up chatter with an integrated elastomer.

2021 Standert Pfadfinder - 50cm

Standert Pfadfinder

Price: $4,899.99 4,103.99
Drivetrain: Shimano Ultegra / GRX Di2

Looking for a super special steel gravel bike but don't want to pay a premium and get stuck on waitlists with a small builder? Standert is the answer. Based in Berlin, this German brand specializes in steel (and aluminum) bikes that "bridge the gap" between bespoke and mass-produced bikes. The steel Pfadfinder is tough, beautiful, and ready to take on any road.

2019 Cervelo Aspero - 61cm

Cervelo Aspero

Price: $4,899.99 3,887.99
Drivetrain: SRAM Rival / XX1 Eagle AXS

Cervelo’s tagline for the Aspero is “haul ass, not cargo,” and that tells you pretty much everything you need to know. While many gravel bikes favor relaxed geometry — higher stack and slacker angles — the Aspero goes the opposite direction. It will appeal to racers and competitive riders with a lower stack height for an aggressive riding position and steeper angles for agile handling.

Mountain Bikes

2021 Trek Supercaliber - Med/Large

Trek Supercaliber

Price: $6,749.99 5,345.99
Drivetrain: SRAM GX Eagle AXS

The Supercaliber is Trek’s lightest, most efficient full-suspension XC bike. It’s also an Olympic champion, having won gold in Tokyo under Jolanda Neff. It uses Trek’s unique IsoStrut suspension system with a frame-integrated shock that provides 60mm of travel to take the edge off bumps and impacts while maintaining hardtail-level weight, stiffness, and efficiency.

2021 Specialized Epic Pro - Large

Specialized Epic Pro

Price: $8,199.99 6,474.99
Drivetrain: SRAM X01 Eagle AXS

The legendary Epic is one of the most popular and successful XC race bikes of all time. The suspension uses Specialized’s proprietary Brain damper. An inertia damper keeps the suspension stiff and efficient for pedaling but during impacts, it opens up instantly to allow the suspension to move. This means you never have to think about locking and unlocking the suspension while riding.

2021 Norco Optic C - Large

Norco Optic C

Price: $6,499.99 5,719.99
Drivetrain: SRAM X01 Eagle AXS

The Optic is the bike that I'd vote for as the perfect trail bike. The 130mm of travel and progressive geo is enough to handle steep and rough terrain, but not so much that it deadens fast flow trails. It’s fast, capable, agile, and playful, everything you need for a quiver-killing trail bike that you can use to tackle nearly any trail in the world.

2022 Kona Process X CR/DL - Large

Kona Process X

Price: $5,599.99 4,929.99
Drivetrain: SRAM GX Eagle AXS

Kona changed the game a decade ago with its Process line-up of bikes which showed that progressive geo and 29er wheels were the way forward for trail riding. The Process X is the most downhill-focused model in the Process line-up with a super slack 63.5-degree head angle and an ample 162mm of rear travel to devour gnarly trails.

2022 Cannondale Jekyll 1 - Large

Cannondale Jekyll

Price: $7,499.99 5,367.49
Drivetrain: SRAM X01 Eagle AXS

The Jekyll was completely redesigned for 2022 with high-pivot suspension. The high-pivot design provides a more rearward axle path, helping the suspension absorb impacts, while an idler pulley compensates for chain growth so there’s no nasty pedal kickback. The result is an ultra-plush-feeling rear end that easily soaks up bumps and keeps the bike in control through the gnarliest terrain.

2022 Trek Slash 9.9 - Med/Large

Trek Slash

Price: $10,499.99 6,749.99
Drivetrain: SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS

The Slash keeps the rear end under control with Trek’s patented ABP (Active Braking Pivot) suspension system. With a pivot at the rear axle, ABP is able to separate braking forces from suspension forces so the suspension always stays active, even when the rear brake is engaged. This helps maintain traction on steep and loose descents, giving riders the confidence to brake later and go faster.
