The 2015 Cycle Show is underway in at the NEC in Birmingham – and we were there on the trade and press day to give you the inside scoop on what’s new.
Having already previewed some of the best 2016 bikes you can see from the likes of Trek, Canyon, De Rosa, LOOK, Bianchi and more, we got deeper into the show to see what’s new from Speedplay, Hunt Bike Wheels, Schwalbe, Fabric, Cannondale and Canyon.
Speedplay had two new pedals on display, the Zero Aero used by Sir Bradley Wiggins for the hour record and the SZYR off-road pedals, while Sussex-based Hunt Bike Wheels have expanded their range from five to 12 wheelsets.
Schwalbe have used the Cycle Show to display a number of number tyres, including the One Pro Tubeless road tyre and the G-One gravel tyre, and Fabric’s saddle range has grown to include the Cell and Line perches. Cannondale’s radical Slate gravel bike was also on display on the Fabric stand, while Nairo Quintana’s Canyon Ultimate CF SLX took pride of place on the Pinarello both.
We’ll take a closer look at all that over the following pages – and remember, if you want to check out the Cycle Show for yourself (it runs until Sunday September 27) then use the discount code RCUK to get money off your tickets at www.cycleshow.co.uk.
