The London Bike Show is undoubtedly the UK’s largest cycling show. Hosted in London’s ExCel, the 2016 edition of the show featured over 300 brands and stands and hosted 50 guest speakers, ranging from pro athletes to nutritionists and coaches. A 50,000 people visited the show over 3 days this year, we visited on Thursday before the public opening and scouted out some of the best new brands and kit on offer.
The biggest brands in Cycling were all in attendance, including Cannondale, Trek, Specialized and Giant. There were also a host smaller, boutique brands including See.Sense, Blaze and Cycloc.
Check out the full gallery above and see below for some of our favourite products from this years show.
Look 795 Aerolight
The Look 795 Aerolight was a London Bike Show showstopper, the eye catching design is 11 percent more aerodynamic than its predecessor, the 695, and it’s included a range of features that were designed to make it as aero as possible.
S-Works Venge Vias
Specialized had big presence at this years show with an impressive wind tunnel display. The Venge Vias is simply the benchmark of aero bikes. Designed and tested in a wind tunnel with McLaren Applied Technologies, it’s manufactured to be the stiffest and fastest bike in the world.
Enigma Bicycle Works
Enigma is something of a rarity these days, a British company actually building bicycles by hand here in the UK. They’ve gone from strength to strength and had a fantastic display of their current models. Beautifully crafted and with paint jobs to match, they had a fair amount of attention!
Neos Cycling offer something quite unique with their distribution model, offering direct online sales and supplying to local bike shops so consumers can get the best of both worlds. They were showing some of their great products at the show. We were impressed with the Ugoe range of lights, offering outstanding performance and value for money.
There will be plenty more show coverage to come, so check back soon for more exciting products and photos…
