We asked our team of buyers to tell us what hot new products they saw during the recent Eurobike show, and here is what they chose. Expect to see some of them in store soon!
Dave Warren, Bike Buyer – This cool looking fixie from Commencal, look at the way the double top tube meets the seat tube!
Will Lowes (Clothing Buyer), Nick Coley (Training) and Nick Stacey (St Pauls store): Maloja clothing! Everyone who visited the stand just loved this colourful but ‘proper’ riding gear. Looking forward to trying it out soon, watch this space!
Georgie Wood, London Bridge store: This Electra bike was one of my highlights…it’s got a super nice frame and tubing, traditional with some modern shapes…lovely riding position, and check out the brakes, I really like how the the brake cables aren’t housed and run down the tube, plus the caliper is positioned further down the normal…awesome….also the dimple effect mudguards, small stuff, but it all adds up…what a colour!!!
Stuart Read, BMX buyer – These new Eclat forks and these Almond shoes (the new shoe range from We the People).
Matt Gilliver, Head of Freeride Training – This new Cane Creek adjustable headset will be very popular!
Mark Rose, Accessories buyer: The new Evoc bag range. I really like the colours and bold design. The bike bag came out last year in black and blue variants and has become a best selling high end bike bag, it’s really very well sorted and not too heavy. The practical features combined with their latest colurs really make it stand out for me. They have also introduced a bunch of other bags/helmet cases etc to their range which we’ll be looking closely at introducing.
Thanks guys, nice tips! I think my favourite had to be the wonderful Ragley bikes. Lovely steel hardtail mountain bikes with some great little touches, possibly coming soon to a shop near you I am told!
