Gallery: New bikes on the 2020 Tour de France

The Tour de France historically serves as one big unveiling for brand new bikes and kit. And whereas the occasions of this yr imply most manufacturers have already revealed their new race choices, that hasn’t stopped the Tour being a spot to see some shiny new issues (from a distance).

This gallery seems to be at a handful of latest bikes seen to this point. Israel Begin-Up Nation is using a yet-to-be-released Issue aero bike, choose riders on Movistar are utilizing Canyon’s newly lightened Final CFR, Mitchelton-Scott has a couple of new Foil Discs in use, after which there are a handful of different groups using new bikes for the reason that start of the season.

And for those who haven’t already, go try our video from Abby Mickey and Dave Everett which covers the Bikes of the Tour De France (no less than these they might get nearby of).


Issue is among the few manufacturers to have what’s clearly an all-new bike at this yr’s Tour. A fast take a look at the UCI-approved body and fork record leads us to imagine that is the Ostro, a possible successor to the corporate’s One aero highway bike.

The brand new aero body options truncated airfoil tube shapes, a fork crown that’s nestled into the down tube and a totally built-in cockpit. Maybe what’s most fascinating is that Issue’s distinctive “Twin Vane” down tube is now not. New bike or not, Israel Begin-Up Nation has new bike graphics and so they’re good.

Issue has lengthy provided one-piece carbon handlebars and stems by way of its sister model Black Inc elements. The built-in cabling is a contemporary characteristic for Issue, and can be being provided with a newly up to date model of Issue’s light-weight climbing bike, the 02 V.A.M.

The body contains a horizontal high tube.

No slender D-shaped seat submit right here, Issue’s new aero bike is utilizing a deep part seat tube and matching submit.

Israel Begin-Up Nation isn’t sponsored by Shimano and so makes use of a mix of elements. The facility meters are from 4iiii, whereas the brake pads and rotors are from SwissStop.

The staff can be racing on new Black Inc tubular wheels. On this case, it’s a low profile Thirty (30 mm depth) up entrance matched to a Sixty (60 mm depth) at rear.

CeramicSpeed is a sponsor of the staff and provides its outsized pulley wheel methods (OSPW), backside brackets, hub bearings and headsets.

The fork options airfoil-shaped legs. There are replaceable inserts on the dropouts, a characteristic that’s nearly actually offered for long-term servicability.

Maxxis offers team-issue tubulars.

This new Issue belongs to Belgian rider Ben Hermans.

The body presents a direct-mount derailleur hanger.

Israel Begin-Up Nation seems to be utilizing 3D-printed quantity plate holders which can be retained with a easy o-ring.

The bikes of Israel Begin-Up Nation have a small “100” decal in clear view of the riders. That is in reminiscence of the staff proprietor’s father, Marcel Adams, who not too long ago handed on the age of 100.

Most Trek-Segafredo riders at the moment are utilizing the newly overhualed Emonda. Pictured is Richie Porte’s bike.

Like a lot of the staff, Porte runs “staff subject” 52/39T chainrings. In comparison with what was seen earlier within the yr, these chainrings are trying fairly polished, maybe even production-ready.

So why such massive chainrings when there’s a 10T on the again? Nicely, it’s one thing we speculated about during the Tour Down Under, and the overall concept is that the staff doesn’t use its 10T cog; somewhat the 11T is the smallest they go to. The way in which this bike was setup for the images suggests our concept could also be proper.

Trek-Segafredo team-issue bikes have lengthy featured built-in race quantity holders. The brand new Emonda is not any totally different.

The brand new Emonda now tucks the cables into the entrance of the bike. Such a design means most common stems and bars can nonetheless be used, though it is sensible to see the staff principally utilizing Bontrager’s supremely light-weight Aeolus RSL one-piece setup.

Trek-Segafredo mechanics usually add rubber grippers to the Bontrager BAT bottle cages. The cages on Porte’s bike are not any totally different.

Alejandro Valverde is using Canyon’s new Final CFR (Canyon Factory Racing). This makes use of the identical mould because the pre-existing Final CF SLX Disc, however contains a new ultra-premium layup that sees that body weight drop to a claimed 641 grams, some 144 g lighter than the common model. One other 40 g is saved within the CFR fork.

Becoming a member of Trek-Segafredo, Movistar is the opposite WorldTour staff on SRAM groupsets. Each groups use the top-tier Purple eTap AXS.

Movistar additionally makes use of the bigger team-issue chainrings. In the beginning of the Tour Valverde was using these enormous 54/41T rings, suggesting he both likes to dash under 100 rpm, or that Movistar, too, avoids the 10T on the rear.

Valverde is utilizing a zero-offset Zipp seatpost to afford what’s clearly a ahead using place. We’re guessing this saddle sits proper close to the UCI’s allowed 50 mm saddle set-back rule (the place the saddle nostril have to be no less than 50 mm behind the underside bracket).

The cockpit is Canyon’s CP20 cockpit, an merchandise that’s claimed to weigh simply 270 grams. Not seen within the photos is that Valverde has adopted a tilted hood place, that means his levers are turned in towards the stem. This appears to be turning into a pattern with the intention of lowering one’s frontal profile.

Valverde is utilizing Zipp NSW 303 tubular disc wheels shod with Continental Competitors Professional LTD. These wheels aren’t a brand new mannequin however somewhat characteristic Zipp’s up to date graphics.

Most groups have their very own options for mounting race numbers to the bikes. Movistar’s strategy is to make use of a small aluminium bracket that’s double-sided-taped to the submit after which cable tied for extra safety.

Apparently it seems that most of Movistar is on the common Final CF SLX and never the brand new CFR model that Valverde is using. Maybe that’ll change for the mountains.

Bahrain McLaren is using a mixture of Merida’s light-weight Scultura and the recently overhauled Reacto. Pictured is the latter, the Merida Reacto aero bike. This new mannequin is disc-only and makes use of FSA’s ACR built-in cockpit and headset system.

The brand new Reacto options Merida’s distinctive cooling fins on the entrance and rear brake calipers, however they’re not used right here. Apparently, these cooling fins will not be built-in into the body and fork, however are somewhat simply wedged between the brake caliper and body. Clearly the staff has determined to do with out them, probably as a consequence of weight and the truth that execs don’t precisely drag their brakes for prolonged durations of time.

Ag2r-La Mondiale continues to experience the Eddy Merckx Stockeu69, successfully a re-painted Ridley Helium SLX. The staff has entry to the comparatively new 525 mannequin, however continues to make use of this lighterweight choice.

Romain Bardet is operating the Stockeu69 in a noticeably totally different paint scheme. We’re nonetheless but to listen to the story for this one. Additionally intriguing is Bardet’s selection of the 64 mm deep Mavic Comete Professional SL wheels, with such a deep wheel not usually seen in use by such svelte climbers.

Scott released an updated version of its Foil Disc simply in time for the Tour. The bike is way the identical as earlier than however earns a brand new fork and built-in cockpit to scrub up the entrance finish.

Scott has retained its fork flaps. It’s a component of aero trickery additionally accomplished by the likes of Pinarello and Ridley, nonetheless, Scott’s are noticably extra elongated.

Each Bora-Hansgrohe and Deceuninck–Fast-Step are using the new Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7.

The massive story for each Specialised-sponsored groups is said to the selection of wheels. We’re seeing a complete lot of the clincher-only Rapide and Alpinist CLX wheels in use.

Bora-Hansgrohe is sponsored by Shimano’s element firm PRO, and so usually makes use of PRO’s stems and handlebars rather than Specialised’s personal. With the S7 this implies the cables are briefly uncovered to the wind. They’re not the one staff on this boat — EF Biking does the identical with balancing its Cannondale and FSA/Imaginative and prescient sponsorships.
