The Cycle Show 2019 is currently taking place, starting yesterday, 12th September, running until 15th.
The show is at the NEC Birmingham with many brands and distributors exhibiting, including ZyroFisher at stand 2-B60, B50, B30, B20. Its brands on show include Argon 18, Look, Selle San Marco, SRAM and Tacx, amongst others.
Argon 18 is showcasing the Galleon Pro disc 15th Anniversary edition, which has had a ‘major makeover’. Lighter frameset, new fork designed for DT Swiss type 12mm thru-axle, direct mount rear derailleur hanger are key technical aspects of this new version of the bike. A direct mount rear derailleur hanger offers industry-standard compatibility, and standard 30mm tyre clearance provides comfort with no compromise in speed. The bike features the original 2005 logo and Gervais Rioux’s signature.
Originally launched in 2005, the latest Gallium Pro iteration was introduced at the Criterium du Dauphiné in June 2017 where it was ridden to two stage victories and a GC title. It’s gone on to a streak of victories including stage victories in all the Grand Tours, GC podium finishes at both the Giro and La Vuelta, a stint in Yellow at the TDF 2017, wins in the Spring Classics, National titles as well as multiple podiums in stage races around the world.
The brand was also showing the Krypton Pro. This bike is designed for those who have been “on a quest for the perfect ride”. “An exceptional, no compromise bike meant for cyclists, amateurs and pros who want to ride, and ride, and ride; comfortably, anywhere, on any type of road.”
The Krypton Pro hits 870g (medium, painted frame) through new pro-level layup development to optimise placement and selection of material. The distinct vibration-dampening characteristics of the layup are the result of a unique test method, designed to quantify road feedback experienced by the rider.
Look was also exhibiting its new gravel bike and new e-road bike, the 765 Gravel RS and the E-765 Optimum.
The brand also has some pedals, including the Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic. Its new design completely integrates the blade for “unrivalled aerodynamics”. Equipped with a carbon body and blade, the Blade Carbon Ceramic is available in a CrMo version (Chromoly spindle) for a weight of 110g per pedal. It is available in three tension release levels: 12,16 and 20. Look has also revealed Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic Ti.
Earlier this month, the brand announced the Geo-Trekking pedal range, Geo-Trekking, Geo-Trekking Grip and Geo-Trekking ROC, designed to meet the needs of riders from the urban commuter to the e-mountain bike rider. Its dual-sided design offers maximum versatility for riders that don’t want to choose between the performance and security of a clipless pedal and convenience of a flat pedal with each ride.
