Sport/Performance

Performance road bikes are meant for racing or riding fairly aggressively on the road.  This may sound intense, but there’s no need to be intimidated.  Up until 10 or 12 years ago this was really the only type of road bike made.  If you’re shopping for your first road bike and you plan on riding fast (or even moderately fast-ish eventually), this is probably your category.
