Eurobike is the worlds biggest cycling trade show, and is the best place to check out all of the upcoming product. Although I would’ve loved to check out the latest and greatest at Eurobike this year, Australia just isn’t close enough for a ‘pop on over’ kind of trip! So here’s a bit of a round-up gallery of touring gear from the show, thanks mostly to Road.cc.

The Adipura bikepacking bags look great on any bike. The Canyon below is the bike used by Juliana Buhring to beat most of the men’s field at the Transcontinental bike race!
Blackburn have recently be working hard to bring out lots of lightweight touring gear, here is their bikepacking setup.
Brooks teamed up with Orlieb to make some REALLY nice looking gear! Mmm… those panniers! Images: TomsBikeTrip.com
This Centurion is technically a cyclocross bike with a rack, bags and mudguards, but it’d still doing a great job on a tour.
The German-made Columbus trekking bikes come with lots of great parts and are lighter than your standard touring bike.
Creme put together this tourer which looks a bit better than we think it would work. It uses very basic componentry, but that said, it probably comes in at an agreeable price point.
Fuji’s ever affordable touring bike hasn’t changed much, and still comes with great components for bike travel.
These guys not only make good looking (and functioning) casual cycling apparel, but their SPD line of shoes are understated and would be great for touring. Images via UrbanVelo.com
Koga always put together great touring bikes. The top bike runs a Pinion 18spd gearbox and is Gates Carbon Drive powered. The bottom bike features a Rohloff hub, Gates Carbon Drive, Magura brakes and more. The bottom one is a bit more of a light tourer, still with great parts (pics via UrbanVelo.com and TomsBikeTrip.com).
The only touring bike to take home a Eurobike award this year was this KTM Life Lontano. At 3399€, it’s pretty much equipped to ride around the world out of the box, with a steel frame, dynamo lights, Gates Carbon Drive and a Pinion 18spd gearbox.
This MTB Cycletech Amar looks amazing! Built with Reynolds 853 steel tubing, this frame has some really neat looking features. The partspec is robust and how good do the green Ortliebs look?
This lugged Patria looks the part! It features at Rohloff hub with a chainglider to keep muck and dirt off your drivetrain, as well as ALL the other top end touring parts.
These guys had on show their aluminium touring bikes with Rohloff hubs and a choice of a chain or belt drivetrain. Images: TomsBikeTrip.com
This Shand, although not setup for touring, would probably do a good job of it, with a steel frameset, Rohloff hub, Gates Carbon Drivetrain, TRP hydro discs and more.
Schauff had their Sumo touring bike on display, which is able to carry riders even 240kg! This overbuilt bike would be perfect for heavy riders looking to do some touring. Tandem image: TomsBikeTrip.com
Surly was showing off their World Troller, a dirt touring bike with 2.75″ tyres and S&S couplers which allow you to break the frame in half for airlines. The frame comes with standard axle sizes, brake mounting options for disc or v-brakes, lots of space for water, clearance for a triple chainring crankset and dropouts which will take geared hubs or derailleurs! Basically, a very versatile, fat, but-not-too-fat… bike! Images: BikeRumor and TomsBikeTrip.com
Tern had a new 20″ touring folder on show, the Verge S27H. This model now features an eccentric bottom bracket, so that you can now run it with a Rohloff hub, unlike most other high end folders. It is finished with a dynamo hub, 27spd drivetrain and disc brakes. The 24″ Eclipse S18 has had similar updates. Images: TomsBikeTrip.com
Tout Terrain never disappoint. They showed off two of their high-end touring bikes, one with a Pinion 18 speed gearbox, and the other with a Rohloff. This brand always used the best touring gear available, Gates Carbon Drive, Supernova lights, Schmidt hubs, Chris King headsets and more. We love their built-in rear racks!
The Light Blue
A brand I’ve not come across before, The Light Blue Darwin uses Reynolds steel tubing to put together their touring bike. They’re designed in the UK, and use an interesting adjustable rear dropout, allowing the rear rack to be mounted quite far back, giving great heel clearance.
Van Nicholas make some of the nicest touring bikes around. But you do pay for it, this Pioneer will set you back over 5800€ but that includes bags, phew. This titanium-using brand employs the best componentry out there: Rohloff hubs, Gates Carbon Drive, Tubus racks, custom Ortlieb/Brooks bags, Brooks saddles and grips, Schmidt hubs/lights, Magura brakes, Schwalbe tyres. Mmm. Van Nicholas were also showing off their new Divisible road handlebar, which breaks into parts, allowing you to mount a Rohloff shifter.
Velotraum were showing off a 26″ tourer which would make a great round-the-world bike, as well as a fat bike, complete with rear rack, dynamo lighting and a Rohloff hub.
Among other things, VSF had their 3399€ top-of-the-line TX-1200 touring bike on display. It utilises a Pinion 18s gearbox as well as lots of other great touring parts. Photo: Cyclable.com
