Tech of the week: Eurobike special featuring new bikes, new Garmins and new lights

There were lots of new products to tempt you at the huge trade fair in Germany last week – especially if you’ve got deep pockets

Pricey new bikes

Amongst the host of new bikes at the show, the Storck Aernario.2 must top the price list. Weighing just 5.3kg – that’s under 12lb – it will set you back 15000 Euros.

We don’t have a price for FiftyOne’s Enve10 bike, which celebrates Enve’s ten years in the bike component business. But kitted out with the carbon specialist’s components bearing the Enve 10 Years logo, it’s not likely to be cheap. Only ten will be made.

A wallet-draining set of logos

Another machine which is likely to empty your wallet is the Bianchi-built Scuderia Ferrari SF01, kitted out with Campagnolo Super Record EPS.

Moving (a little bit) down the price range, Look has redesigned its pro-level 795. The new 795 Aerolight RS and 795 Light RS have new cable routing with adjusters built into the bars and improved comfort and maintainability. Look’s Kéo Blade pedals have also had a makeover.

Giant Propel sprouts disc brakes

Scott has launched a disc version of its aero Foil. We’ve got all the details and had a ride of the new bike. And we’ve details of the disc version of the Giant Propel too.

New products from Garmin, Zipp and Oakley

Also launched this week was the Garmin Edge 1030. The new top-of-the-line Garmin has a larger 3.5 inch screen, new functionality and improved integration to TrainingPeaks and Strava Live.

Garmin also had the latest update to its Vector power meter pedals. The Vector 3 ditches the external pods and comes in single-sided and double-sided versions.

For even more instrumentation of your ride, the Notio Konect, on show at Eurobike, measures your drag co-efficient in real time. Coupled with a power meter, it should allow you to see just where your watts are going. And we’ve had a look at what the new iPhone 8 and the Apple Watch 3, which are both expected to be launched soon, might do for cyclists.

Zipp’s new disc brake wheels get added dimples

Zipp has no less than eight new tubeless, disc specific wheelsets with wider rims as well as a 650b wheelset. And you can now get Zipp tubeless tyres to go with them all.

And Oakley has a range of three new helmets as well as clothing, so you can now be Oakley from top to toe.

Winter round the corner

With the nights drawing in rapidly now, we’ve also had a look at the latest lights from Lezyne and Cateye’s new wearable lighting. While if you suffer from cold feet, Northwave’s new insulated cycling shoes provide more warmth than a summer shoe without the bulk of a winter boot.

Wahoo Kickr Climb simulates climbs and descents in the comfort of your garage

If you prefer to spend the winter on your trainer though, Wahoo has just launched the Kickr Climb. Paired with your Kickr or Kickr Snap trainer, this raises and lowers the front of the bike to simulate climbs and descents.

Meanwhile, Tacx had a prototype exercise bike on show at Eurobike that can simulate cobbles, so you’ll be ready for the 2018 Classics season.
