Orro Terra C Adventure


If you go to the London Bike Show expect to see many gravel and adventure bikes, like this Terra C Adventure from British company Orro. The carbon frame takes 38mm tyres and has flared drop handlebars and compact gears for easing you over the most adventurous terrain.

Marin Gestalt

If adventure is your cup of tea but you want lots of off-road capability, then the Marin Gestalt might interest you. The US company has ported quite a lot of its mountain bike expertise into this drop bar road bike, sporting as it does geometry, dropper post, short stem and wide bars designed to excel in the rough.

Orange R9 Factory


Halifax bike brand Orange may be best known for its big range of aluminium mountain bikes, but it has dabbled in carbon road bikes in the past. This year it will be displaying the latest R9 Factory, a carbon endurance disc-equipped ado

Ribble Endurance SLe - SRAM eTAP DISC

Cycle Show 2018 Ribble SL-E

Proving that e-bikes are starting to look much more like regular road bikes is the new Ribble Endurance SLe. From a distance, there’s no detecting the battery in the downtube but during the show, you’ll be able to have a closer poke around. It weighs a claimed 11kg which is apparently the world’s lightest e-road bike.

Alistair Brownlee’s custom Scott Plasma


Two-time Olympic Triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee MBE will be showcasing his customised Scott Plasma Tri, a bike that is absolutely built for going as fast as possible. It’s also got some clever on-board hydration and nutrition storage.

Coco-Mat Bikes - Odysseus E-Bike

There’ll also be some weird and wonderful to see, such as this handcrafted wooden e-bike surely a first in the bike industry?  One adult ash tree provides enough wood to construct 50 bikes and for every bike sold, Coco plants a tree which is name-tagged on behalf of the owner. If you like trees, you’ll like this bike.
