Every year, the cycling world descends upon Friedrichshafen in Germany for the annual display of all things velo that is ‘Eurobike’.
As UK riders are absorbing the last weeks of British summer, dealers, brands (and cycling journalists) gather to discuss the new creations set to thrill customers for the following year.
The show kicked off on Wednesday, and we’ve been busy scurrying around the halls to pick out our favourite new additions to the 2017 market.
For the dirt loving divas - there's plenty to get us excited about. Electric mountain bikes are in their element here as they are becoming an increasingly popular guest on the trails. We've been hugely impressed with the varied ranges of women's kit that are on offer from our favourite big and little brand names. It looks like purples, emeralds and intense pinks will be adorning our trails next year for the new 2017 colour-ways too!
Feast your eyes on the colours, and get your Christmas lists ready...
