Eurobike 2019 is the world's biggest cycling industry trade show. With over 1,400 exhibitors, it's the place where you'll find all the latest innovations, trends and technologies.
Here are some of our highlights that we'll be watching out for over the coming year.
Indoor training got even more realistic
E-bikes got even lighter
eBikes were everywhere at Eurobike but the one that caught our eye was the new Willier Cento 10. Weighing in at a mere 10.2kg, the brand claim that it sets a new world record for a performance road e-bike. The stealthy control button on the side of the stem means nobody will suspect a thing.
POC continued to innovate
POC's Vectral Air Spin and Tectal Race Spin are updated for 2020 with NFC technology. An NFC chip uses RFID and allows the wearer to store emergency medical information in their helmet. This potentially life-saving data can be easily accessed by first responders by simply holding a smartphone over it.
Transitions lenses that adapt to light conditions have been around for a long time. POC take a fresh approach with their new Solar Switch lens, using a liquid crystal layer that instantly changes the tint based on prevailing light conditions.
Saddles got the 3D printing treatment
Fi'zi:k has worked with Californian 3D Printing experts Carbon to create a polymer lattice padding for their new Adaptive Saddle.
The revolutionary Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) printing method allows the lattice geometry to be precisely engineered for support, cushioning and power transfer exactly where it is needed. In the long-term, this technology could be used to create a saddle that's optimised just for you.
