2022 Top 5 Best Hybrid Bikes

For some people, hopping on any bike for any situation will suit them just fine. But as our parents often scolded us, just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should! The bicycle market is full of unique types or styles of bikes, think beach cruisers and road bikes, and new types and genres of bikes are added every couple of years (see the recent rise in what are being called "gravel bikes").

Naturally, this can make things confusing for those relatively new or inexperienced to biking as an adult. Those who just want a good, solid bike. The thing to keep in mind here if you're such a buyer on the market is that the reason there are so many different styles, genres, types of bikes is to help people like yourself zero in and find that perfect bike for your specific riding needs and desires. The hybrid bike is an excellent example of why such specializations are great.

Understanding What Makes a Hybrid Bike a Hybrid Bike

A hybrid bike is called such because it is the most general combination of a road bike and mountain bike. While there are certainly other bikes that will take on characteristics of both road and mountain styled bikes (see the aforementioned gravel bikes), the hybrid bike is one that really nicely meshes what most see as the biggest pros of each of those two bikes. For example, many hybrids will have a rigid frame (no suspension system in the front fork) that looks more like a road bike but with flat or riser handlebars that mimic mountain bikes.

Of course, merging road bikes and mountain bikes also means compromising on things that otherwise make one or the other type of bike so desirable. Hybrids offer a wonderful balance of frame make and construction that is strong enough to endure uneven pavement as well as loose gravel and dirt paths, but you will certainly not find a hybrid that is as light and quick as a road bike. Nor will you find a hybrid that you will be safe taking on downhill mountain trails.

The key to enjoying hybrid bikes is understanding what they excel at. These are bikes that are affordable and built to be comfortable for the daily cyclist as well as the occasional recreational cyclist. Not competitive bikes, but fun bikes.

2022 Top 5 Best Hybrid Bikes

Here at sixthreezero, making bikes that are fun to ride is essentially our mission statement, and so it is no wonder that we have quite the fleet of quality hybrid bikes. The following is a look at a few of them as well as other premier hybrid bikes that most certainly make the list of top 5 best hybrid bikes in 2022:

4. Hiland Hybrid Bike

The Hiland Hybrid Bike is a bike that looks very similar to our Pave n' Trail hybrid bike. Both have the 700c wheels, feature a 7-speed drive train, and have a lower top tube that makes getting on and off the bike a breeze. There are, of course, some differences.

The Hiland Hybrid bike by the HH Hiland Store is the lowest cost bike on this list, it also tends to be the simplest (although that lower price point may also make it the ideal hybrid bike for those just starting to bike again and who don't want to overly invest in their first-in-a-long-time adult bicycle). This hybrid bike does not come with fenders, a rear rack, or a kickstand. All can be easily added after purchase, making it a good choice for those who want to do a more customized bike.

The included saddle on this bike is very sporty, similar to what you might find on an indoor cycling machine. It offers good hip support and, paired with the bike's flat bars, puts the cyclist in a more aggressive position that is ideal for urban riding.

Other great attributes of the Hiland Hybrid bike include:

  • Three colors to choose from including a very popular mint green that is relatively unique to this niche of bikes.
  • Comes equipped with a Shimano 7-speed drivetrain that is easily accessed via grip shifters. Grip shifters allow the rider to simply twist the shifting unit with their palm to enjoy easy, seamless transitioning between gears.

5. Priority Continuum Onyx

Here at sixthreezero, we love bikes that are designed differently. Bikes that address common frustrations cyclists have with riding. The Priority Continuum Onyx is a hybrid bike that does that well!

What this bicycle does differently is swapped out the traditional bike chain that has been a part of bicycle drive systems for centuries for a belt chain. This bike also features an internal drive system in which all the gear shifting happens within the rear hub, rather than on an attached cassette via a derailleur. The carbon belt has the big advantage of being low-maintenance with a long lifespan. Cyclists won't have to worry about grease on their clothes, having to lube up the chain, or dealing with dropped chains. The internally-geared system also offers the nice capability of shifting gears while at a complete stop (with a traditional chain, cassette, and derailleur system it is important to be actively pedaling when shifting gears).

Of course, such a unique bike comes with a high price, literally. This is the most expensive hybrid bike on our list of top 2022 traditional hybrid bikes with a retail price comparative to one of sixthreezero's electric bikes. But it does pack quite the features.

Other exciting attributes of this bike include:

  • Enjoy integrated dynamo bike lights that can't be swiped off of the bike and will never need battery replacements as they are powered by each rotation of the wheel.
  • This bike comes standard with a powerful Tektro hydraulic system that will ensure cyclists have full braking control no matter the conditions.
  • The twist shifter for the internal hub features an illustrated gear indicator that can be helpful for those uncertain about when to shift to what gears.
