Eurobike gallery: The best tech from Europe’s biggest bike show

Eurobike gallery: The best tech from Europe’s biggest bike show

Eurobike is a wrap for another year. After missing 2020 due to the pandemic, the trade show made a welcome return last week with close to 19,000 visitors across the four days descending on the halls of the Messe Friedrichshafen.

While many of the biggest brands now skip Eurobike, and the show is smaller than in previous years, and while the focus has very much shifted to e-bikes and cargo bikes, there was still plenty for us to feast our eyes on. 

We have some of the newest and most exciting products on show at this year’s Eurobike in this gallery. While we covered many of these products at launch on CyclingTips, nothing beats getting hands-on and grabbing some snaps of our own. And if you’re after more from Eurobike, we also have plenty of news on wind tunnels, on-the-fly tyre pressure management, 930 g wheelsets, and videos to sink your teeth into. 

Elite Rizer

Elite announced its new Rizer gradient and steering simulator back in July. It’s similar to the Wahoo Kickr Climb that we’ve reviewed previously.

This was the first time we saw the Elite in the metal, and as far as indoor training accessories go, it is a thing of beauty. With an aluminium tower, steel and aluminium base, and a leather carry handle, it seems wrong to douse it in sweat.

The Rizer connects to a range of Elite trainers for automatic incline and decline simulation and features a refreshingly simple button control unit on the tower for manual gradient control. The fork mount slides vertically to simulate up to 20% inclines and -10% descents, while the base slides horizontally to maintain the wheelbase length.
