If adventure is your cup of tea but you want lots of off-road capability, then the Marin Gestalt might interest you.

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.

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.

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.
