We take a look at some of the latest products on show at Europe's biggest bike show

Swiss manufacturer BMC unveiled their vision of what bikes may look like in the future on the opening day of the Eurobike show in Friedrichschafen, Germany yesterday.

The Impec concept  bike takes current day aero stylings to the extreme with sharp angles, a twin blade stem and seat posts and mono-forks and stays.

Transmission is enclosed – although this is a department BMC will leave up to other manufacturers- while storage for tools and bottles are integrated into the frame.

Vents in the stays present a cooling air intake for the disc brakes.

Although the machine is not something BMC envisage bringing into  production as a whole anytime soon, design director Torgny Fjeldskaar told us research from the project may see real application in current projects they’re working on.

Same goes for Canyon’s concept machine which utilises carbon springs to offer a level of suspension for road riding. The German company teamed up with compatriots T-Mobile to work on the bike’s ‘connectivity’.

According to Ward Grootjan’s, Canyon’s Head of Global Sales, this means such actions as a tightening of grip on handlebar sensors, or GPS detecting a stretch of cobbles coming up,  could trigger a change of suspension setting.

Elsewhere, Mavic were using Europe’s biggest bike show to show off a new line of aero gear, including some natty integrated shoe covers. Zipp launched their Tangente Course and Speed tyres, designed with aerodynamics in mind, and Cervelo revealed updates to their S5 aero bike and super-duper handmade carbon RCA frame. It now weighs 670g for the frame and 277g for the fork.
