Megatrend: Fat bikes
The Cube Stereo 160 C:68 is quick, but that’s not all: this replica enduro winner also has ingenious shocks you can operate from the handlebars, a super-light carbon frame, and aggressive geometry that blends climbing prowess with downhill freeriding nimbleness.
A DIFFERENT FERRARI
Colnago has been creating high-end racing bikes for decades, but with the V1-r Limited Edition the Italian luxury bike maker has pedalled the extra mile, teaming up with its local motorsport counterpart, Ferrari. This has resulted in a super-charge of F1 engineering to Colnago’s already advanced carbon manufacturing – the frame geometry has been tuned up and every tube shape-optimised via wind-tunnel testing. Add Mavic Ksyrium 125th Anniversary wheels and you’ve got a limited-edition bike that’s anything but limited in performance.
In its single-speed rocket, the Gazzetta, traditional Italian bike manufacturer Cinelli has fused steel perfectly to make a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Designed as a bike for both track racing and modern city life, you’ll be overtaking cycle messengers on this one.
