We’ve just returned from Eurobike, the world’s most significant cycle trade show, where we were on a mission to find the best tech coming to a road or trail near you.

Use the comments section below to let us know what you think about all the new stuff.

The demo area at Eurobike is filled with a mix of high-end and bonkers bikes available to take for a spin around the test track. Here’s a look at what was on offer…

There are some pretty impressive paint jobs and colour combos on the 2018 NS Bikes collection – check them out:

The Ghost Bikes stand is always a hive of activity and this year was no different. Here are our picks from the 2018 mountain bike range:

They’ve been producing some of the best cycling components, wheels and accessories since 1989 so their first ever carbon frame was always going to be a big hit. We had a quick look…

Like a kid in a sweetshop, we headed to the SRAM stand to drool over the 2018 collection of suspension forks including the new Pike, Sid and Yari.

SRAM’s Eagle XX1 and X01 groupset launched the company’s 12-speed drivetrain into the limelight. An awesome groupset with a price to match. With the new GX Eagle, SRAM might have just produced the best 12-speed groupset on the market…

Not content with seeing their new carbon trail bike, we had a wander around Hope’s stand to see the company’s other components including their famous hubs, quick releases and headsets. Which of these do you have on your bike?

Rachel Atherton has dominated the downhill World Cup circuit for over a decade, and her current Trek Session downhill race bike was in pride of place on the Shimano stand. We had a little look:

RockShox are pioneers in the world of suspension and there are some treats in their 2018 collection of rear shocks including all-new metric and trunnion models. See them here:

Garmin used the Eurobike show to unveil the Edge 1030, their new high-end bike computer. As well as looking super clean and modern, the Edge 1030 has a 3.5″ high resolution touchscreen and loads of connected features.
