The bikes of the Tour de France 2024 — your definitive guide to what the top men's pro cycling teams are riding this year

Take a look at all the bikes and components being ridden at this year's Tour

The Tour de France is a 22-team peloton, which gives us plenty of bikes and equipment to look at. We've put together this guide covering who's riding what, including the five unreleased bikes we spotted at the 2024 Criterium du Dauphine

18 of the Tour de France squads are from the WorldTour, and there are also four ProTeams. Israel-Premier Tech and Lotto Dstny topped the 2023 UCI ProTeam rankings, so have received automatic invitations alongside the WorldTour teams, while Uno-X Mobility and TotalEnergies have been awarded wildcard invitations this year.

Out of the 22 teams, 18 are using Shimano groupsets, while 4 are riding with SRAM's recently launched Red AXS groupset. This season, Bora-Hansgrohe has opted for SRAM alongside Visma-Lease a Bike, Lidl-Trek and Movistar.

Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale, previously AG2R Citroën,  was the only WorldTour team using Campagnolo components in 2023. Its transition to Shimano groupsets means that for the first time in over 70 years, no teams in the men's WorldTour peloton are using Campagnolo. 

A surprising change for 2024 is the French team Groupama-FDJ's switch from Lapierre bikes to the Italian brand Wilier Triestina, concluding a partnership that lasted over two decades.

FSA's Vision-branded wheels have doubled their presence in the WorldTour peloton, with four teams now on Vision hoops. 

Without further ado, let's have a look at the bikes. Here are all the men's teams participating in this year's Tour de France and their rides, listed in alphabetical order. 

Alpecin-Deceuninck

2023 Dauphine Canyon Aeroad - 1

> Canyon unveils Mathieu van der Poel edition Aeroad CFR

This year, Alpecin-Deceuninck remain committed to a proven strategy and are continuing to ride Canyon bikes equipped with Shimano groupsets. Previously, the weapons of choice were the Canyon Aeroad CFR and Speedmax CF SLX TT bike, but Canyon has been busy cooking up a new aero bike.

Movistar has been spotted on the new aero bike (more on that below), so it's likely we'll see Alpecin-Deceuninck riders aboard this too. The version we've seen has undergone far more changes compared to the model Van der Poel has been riding over the past year.

Spec-wise, the team run Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and wheels. The tyres are Vittoria – usually the Vittoria Corsa Pro – and the team sits on Selle Italia saddles. 

Arkéa-B&B Hotels

2024 Bianchi Oltre RC Arkea Samsic

> Bianchi combines light weight and aero credentials with updated Specialissima

This season, French team Arkéa-Samsic became Arkéa-B&B Hotels, while maintaining their partnership with Bianchi following the bike manufacturer's return to the WorldTour last year.

The team has access to the Oltre RC, Specialissima and Aquilla TT models, and they continue to use Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets.

The team's bikes feature Vision wheels and Vittoria tyres, marking a departure from Shimano wheels and Continental tyres last season. Like Alpecin-Deceuninck, the team will use Selle Italia saddles. 

Astana Qazaqstan

Mark Cavendish is back for another year with the Kazakh team, and they continue to use Wilier Triestina bikes. Previously, the team had the choice of the Wilier Filante SLR and 0 SLR models, but Groupama-FDJ has been spotted on what appears to be a new climbing bike, which Astana Qazaqstan is likely to have the option to use as well. For time trials, the team switches to the Wilier Turbine.

Astana has been supported by Wilier Triestina since the 2019 season, riding what is arguably one of the best-looking bikes in the pro peloton, complete with Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets.

It appears that the Hed/Corima debacle - where the team were using Hed wheels despite being sponsored by the latter - is over, and one of the biggest changes to the team at the start of this season was that Vision is the official wheel sponsor. Those wheels are equipped with Vittoria tyres. They will also use Prologo saddles and Garmin head units. 

Bahrain Victorious

2024 Merida Reacto Bahrain Victorious

It's business as usual for Bahrain Victorious and they are using the same trusted Merida bikes as last year, with the Reacto and Scultura road bikes and Warp TT models forming the line-up.

Shimano Dura-Ace remains the groupset, the wheels are Vision with Continental GP5000 tyres, the saddles Prologo and finishing kit is handled by FSA.

Bora-Hansgrohe

Despite Peter Sagan retiring as a professional road cyclist at the end of last season, Specialized remains the bike sponsor for Bora-Hansgrohe, a partnership that has continued since 2017.

Specialized continues to supply it all: the Tarmac SL8 for the road, Shiv TT for the time trials, Roval wheels and Specialized tyres. The wheels are unreleased Roval Rapide Team wheels featuring a distinctive silver hub.

This year sees the team switch to SRAM groupsets from Shimano, and the team also uses SRAM-owned Hammerhead bike computers. 

Cofidis

There are no changes in the Cofidis camp. The team rode the Look 795 Blade RS road bike throughout the entirety of last season, even though it was only officially released on 21 June 2023, and is continuing to use it this year. 

Cofidis also continue to use Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets. The French brand Corima supplies the wheels, and they are running Michelin tyres.

The team are also using SRM power meters, Selle Italia saddles and Wahoo bike computers. 

Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale

Previously known as AG2R Citroën Team, Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale will be riding Van Rysel road bikes in 2024. If you want one for yourself the prices aren't absolutely other-worldly either, with the very top-tier model costing £9k. 

The team will ride Van Rysel RCR road bikes, XCR time trial bikes and Van Rysel kit and accessories.

AG2R Citroën was the only WorldTour team running a Campagnolo groupset in 2023, so Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale's switch to Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets means that no teams are using Campagnolo groupsets in the WorldTour peloton this season - how times have changed, as this would have been unthinkable in the second half of the 20th century. 

The team bikes are complete with SwissSide wheels, Continental GP5000 tyres, Fizik saddles and a Wahoo bike computer. 

EF Education-EasyPost

If you’re looking for the most distinctive bike in the pro peloton, EF Pro Cycling’s Cannondale SuperSix EVO has to be in with a big shout.

The American team sticks to the same bunch of sponsors as before: Cannondale bikes with Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets, FSA's Vision brand wheels, Vittoria tyres and Prologo saddles.

Groupama-FDJ

2025 Wilier Vert - 1

> WIlier set to launch mystery new bike

A big change change in the WorldTour peloton this year was Groupama-FDJ's switch from Lapierre bikes to the Italian bike brand Wilier Triestina, putting an end to a partnership that lasted over two decades. 

Previously, the team had the choice of the Wilier Filante SLR, 0 SLR, and Turbine TT bike. However, it appears that they will be riding a new climbing bike at this year's Tour, with the UCI sticker suggesting it might be called the Wilier Vert.

The bikes are equipped with Shimano groupsets and wheels, Continental tyres and a Prologo saddle. 

Ineos Grenadiers

2025 Pinarello Dogma F - 9.jpeg

Another team with a new bike for this year's Tour is Ineos Grenadiers, who are riding the new Pinarello Dogma F, while continuing to use the Bolide TT bike.

The new Dogma F appears to prioritise aerodynamics, featuring a much deeper head tube and a bulbous bottom bracket area that merges the non-drive side chainstay with the BB shell.

> Ineos Grenadiers race new Pinarello Dogma at Dauphiné

The groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and the wheels are usually from Shimano too – although the team has been known to dip into the Lightweight and Princeton ranges in its search for those famous marginal gains. 

The tyres are Continental and the finishing kit is from Pinarello's MOST brand, while the team uses Prologo saddles. 

Intermarché-Wanty

It's business as usual for Intermarché-Wanty as the Belgian team continues to ride Cube bikes equipped with Shimano groupsets, Newmen wheels and Prologo saddles.

Riders can choose either the super-light Cube Litening Air C:68X or the Litening C:68X Aero for lower drag. The Aerium C:68 TT is there for time trials. 

Israel-Premier Tech 

2024 Factor OSTRO VAM

Factor Bikes is the official bike partner of Israel-Premier Tech, and the brand's updated Ostro Vam road bike, released earlier this year, is the preferred choice for their riders.

These bikes are fitted with Black Inc's 48/58 wheelset, which was developed alongside the Ostro Vam to help keep the weight down, along with Continental tyres. 

2024 Factor OSTRO VAM

The groupset is Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and the saddles are Selle Italia.

Lidl-Trek

2025 Trek Andromeda? - 1 (2)

The Trek Madone and Emonda road bikes are the usual weapons of choice for Lidl-Trek, but riders are now using an unreleased Trek which looks to be the one bike for both aero and lightweight occasions. The Trek Speed Concept is used for time trials. 

2025 Trek Andromeda? - 1 (1)

SRAM supplies the groupsets, Trek's Bontrager brand provides pretty much everything else and the tyres are from Pirelli. 

Lotto Dstny

Orbea Orca Aero 2024 Lotto Dstny - 1

One of the four ProTeams participating in this year's Tour is Lotto Dstny, which has transitioned from Ridley to Orbea as their bike sponsor this season. Riders have access to these Orbea bikes: the Orca Aero, Orca and Ordu TT bike.

The wheels are from Zipp, the tyres are Vittoria and the groupset is Shimano Dura-Ace Di2.

Movistar

2024 Canyon Aeroad Dauphine - 2.jpeg

Movistar continues to ride Canyon bikes, with riders currently using the next-generation Canyon Aeroad, which features a deeper headtube, along with the lightweight Ultimate.

Equipment is an entirely SRAM-owned affair, with the team using Red AXS groupsets, Zipp wheels and Time pedals.

Finishing off their bikes are Continental tyres, Fizik saddles and Garmin bike computers.

Soudal Quick-Step

2024 Soudal Quick-Step Specialized Tarmac SL8 road bike

Soudal-Quickstep will race on trusty Specialized bikes again at this year's Tour. Like Bora-Hansgrohe, they will be riding the Tarmac SL8. 

The team are using Specialized saddles, tyres and finishing kit, and unreleased Roval Rapide Team wheels featuring a distinctive silver hub.

Groupsets are from Shimano, and the riders will be using Garmin bike computers. 

Team dsm-firmenich PostNL

2024 Scott Foil RC Team dsm-firmenich PostNL bike

Scott provides the DSM men's and women's teams with bikes, and the Foil RC is the most popular choice with the Plasma 5 used for time trials.

The team use Shimano groupsets and wheels, and wrapped on them are Vittoria tyres. Scott’s subsidiary Syncros is also providing all of the finishing kit, including the saddles, and the riders are using Wahoo bike computers. 

Team Jayco–AlUla

2024 Team Jayco Alula Giant Propel Advanced SL

Team Jayco AlUIa bikes are an all-Giant affair. Riders have the choice between the Giant Propel Advanced SL (above), TCR Advanced SL and Trinity TT bikes.

Wheels, tyres and saddles are from Giant's Cadex brand, and Shimano is the main equipment partner supplying Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets. 

Team Visma–Lease a Bike

Despite the transition from Jumbo to Lease a Bike as the main sponsor, Cervélo remains the bike supplier for both the men's and women's teams, maintaining the iconic black and yellow colour scheme in their kit and bikes. Riders can choose between the R5 Disc, S5, or P5 for time trials.

SRAM is the groupset sponsor, and the team ride Reserve hoops and Vittoria tyres. The bikes are also equipped with Fizik saddles. 

Team TotalEnergies

Serving not only as a supplier of wheels and finishing kits, Enve's race-focused frame replaces Specialized for the French team this season. While the team will ride the Melee for road stages, they continue to use Specialized Shiv TT bikes from last season, as Enve does not currently offer a time trial bike in its line-up.

The team will also use the SES line of wheels, which includes the 2.3, 3.4 and 4.5, providing options for lightweight climbing wheels and deep-section aero wheels. Riders will also choose between one-piece or two-piece handlebars, including the SES Aero Road Bar and SES AR Bar.

Like numerous other teams participating in this year's Tour, Team TotalEnergies bikes feature Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 groupset.

UAE Team Emirates

2024 UAE Team Emirates Colnago V4RS road bike

UAE Team Emirates has been racing in a new livery for 2024. Their Colnago V4RS bikes are still black with white and red accents, it's just that everything has been given a bit of a rejig.

After making the switch from a Campagnolo to Shimano groupset last season, UAE Team Emirates has stuck with Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets this season.

The team will be using ENVE wheels with Continental tyres and a Prologo saddle. The handlebars and stem are from Enve too, with lots of riders from the team opting for the Enve SES AR one-piece aero handlebar.

Uno-X Mobility

2024 Dare VA Daphine - 1.jpeg

Receiving a wildcard invitation again this year, Uno-X Mobility are racing on a new Dare VA aero bike with perhaps the deepest head tube and bar in the peloton. The aero bike is fitted with a V:C1 integrated cockpit, which we can't imagine many riders will be able to fit their hands around when climbing. Not that this bike will be used for climbing though, as they have the VS-RU for that.

2024 Dare VA Daphine - 5.jpeg

We also noted that Uno-X was the only team at the Dauphine to have fitted an oversized pulley wheel system to their bikes, which is the latest CermamicSpeed RS Alpha with solid jockey wheels. 

Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 is the groupset of choice for Uno-X Mobility, and the bikes are complete with DT Swiss hoops.

A shame not to see any Campagnolo at the Tour. I would have thought they'd do a deal to showcase wireless Super Record.
