Big news from Shimano this year is the launch of GRX, its first dedicated gravel groupset. It’s been a long time coming, but after teasing with Ultegra RX last year, it’s finally here. The new offering provides a wide spread of possible builds including 10 and 11-speed, 1x and 2x, mechanical and electronic, wide or close-range gears and dropper post-integration.

Tioga’s new Binary all-road tyre

Tioga, a brand old-timer mountain bikers will remember, is showing its new Binary, an all-road tyre. It uses a “combination” tread with a smooth centre section for low rolling resistance and elongated ridge knobs for cornering grip.

All-City Cycles Zig Zag

All City 5ay-zigzag-ultegra-55-o-2-sml

You’ll be able to clap eyes on the lovely new Zig Zag from All-City Cycles. It’s a steel road bike designed to mix classic style with modern performance. Tyre clearance is a key talking point with modern road bikes. The Zig Zag has space for up to 32mm without mudguards, 35mm without. That opens the bike up for some light gravel and dirt use with a few good tyres in that size range that will cope with some rough stuffing.

Redshift ShockStop suspension seat post and stem


With the rise of gravel bikes and more people riding rough stuff, there’s a growing appetite for products to provide a smoother ride. The Redshift Suspension Seatpost and Shockstop Suspension Stem achieve that, providing vibration absorption for gravel applications.

Miss Grape’s new Moon bar bag

MG bamg-moon-bag-1

Miss Grape makes a whole host of bikepacking bags and it’ll be showing its brand new Moon bar bag at the show. The bag simply attaches to the handlebar and is ideal for stashing snacks, tools and/or camera for recording your adventure.

Just Riding Along

Just Riding Along is expanding its wheel range to include 30, 40 and 50mm depths on its Mahi Mahi model, with weights from a claimed 1,321g and priced at a very reasonable £850.


It also has a new Map Superlight aluminium disc brake wheel weighing a claimed 1,351g and priced at £390. They do have an 85kg rider weight limit and come in a 650b version which apparently is even lighter.

See.Sense launch new ICON2 light


Winter is fast approaching and See.Sense has developed its latest ICON2 light, boasting 300 lumens in the rear light and 400 lumens in the front, with a claimed 16-hour run time.
