Incoming: the hottest new bikes and bike tech

Updated: New bikes, gear and kit from Eurobike 2016
Eurobike is the world's biggest bike show and the venue of choice for many of the world's biggest manufacturers to unveil what's coming for the following season. BikeRadar are there in force to bring you the latest announcements.

Held in Friedrichshafen, Germany every August/September, the show sees tens of thousands of people in the bicycle trade descend upon a cluster of enormous Zeppelin hangars, packed full of the latest bikes, components, clothing, protective wear, gadgets... If it's something to do with cycling, this is the place to show a product.

2016 dates: 31 August - 4 September

The BikeRadar team are hitting the show floor to check out the hottest new gear and give you our thoughts on it. We'll update this page throughout the show, so bookmark it and keep checking back for the coolest new stuff as we get our hands on it.
