Brand relaunches, product arrivals, seminars and much more are promised at the 2010 Cycle Show at Earls Court...

Bohle
Schwalbe is going single speed with new iterations of the Durano lines. Taking on a new look especially for single speed, retro and fixies, the Durano now comes in three designer colours. The range will also be available in a specially reinforced version for the bona-fide fixie rider – entitled the Durano Skid.

Other highlights from Schwalbe are likely to include the latest from its relationship with 4x4 specialist Scott Beaumont, who signed up to compete on Schwalbe tyres in 2010 and 2011.

Garmin
Garmin is bringing finger tapping technology to bike navigation with the Touchscreen Edge 800 at Cycle Show. Combining the popular features of the Edge 500 and Edge 705 with the aforementioned touchscreen tech, the 800 offers an array of new mapping options including Garmin GB Discoverer topographical mapping for Great Britain, developed in conjunction with none other than Ordnance Survey – making it ideal for training, touring and riding on the trail.

Smaller and sleeker that the 705, the 800 has a larger 2.6-inch colour display with versatile mapping options. Top athletes have lent their expertise to the development of the new device, according to the firm.

Garmin will be joined by the Brownlee Brothers on Saturday at 4pm on its stand (B11).

Cycle Show trade day is on Thursday October 7th, with the consumer event running until Sunday.
