Eurobike 2015: Bicycle Touring & Travel Gallery

Eurobike is the biggest bike tradeshow in the world, and the place where most manufacturers unveil their upcoming bikes and products. This year there was huge growth in the off-road touring sector, as well as with e-Bikes and bikepacking gear.

Unfortunately I couldn’t make Eurobike, so it is with thanks to Kenni and Heidi of Ecotrip.bike, and Martin from Biketour.global that we have these images. Kenni and Heidi are currently travelling sustainably and simply around Europe on their bikes – make sure to check out their website or give them a follow on Instagram. You can follow Martin on the BiketourGlobal Facebook or Instagram pages.

Ok, without further ado, here’s a round-up gallery of all the touring, trekking and bikepacking gear from the show. I will update this resource as more photos become available.


Apidura are one of the most prominent bikepacking bag brands around. They had all of their bag options on well-used show bikes to give you an idea of what they are capable of.

Blackburn have recently built themselves quite a collection of bicycle touring / bikepacking bags, racks and accessories. I especially like their handlebar roll and compression seat pack.

Brooks didn’t bring any new bicycle touring products to Eurobike, but they’ve certainly extended their casual bag range. I also really like those sand coloured panniers with Ortlieb clips!

B&M didn’t disappoint with a handful of new dynamo lights for 2016. The IQ-X now tops the range in terms of brightness.

Co-Motion had their gravel, touring and road tandems on show. I have a soft spot for Co-Motion bikes, considering I’ve used their Equator tandem to ride from Turkey to Australia. They’re super well made bikes in general, and definitely some of the best tandems around!

Gates Carbon Drive

Gates recently released their new CDC:EXP belts and sprockets, and were keen to have them on display. The sprockets are deeper set than the standard model – designed for ‘expedition’ use.

Gilles Berthoud

GB’s range hasn’t changed much since last year. All of their classy, timeless product have stood the test of time, and probably will for a long while to come!

Koga had their latest touring offerings on show, including lots of Rohloff and Belt Drivetrains. The WorldTraveller bikes now feature eccentric bottom brackets instead of sliding dropouts. I especially like Koga’s step-through touring bikes. Oh, and the last picture is of Mark Beaumont’s bike which he used to break the record for the fastest solo ride of Africa!

KTM brought their exceptionally well-priced Life Lontano touring bike to the show last year where it won a Eurobike award. 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.

Maxx was showing their aluminium touring bikes as well as a few interesting e-Bikes. The first pic is of a neat trekking e-Bike, the last images are of a dual suspension fat e-Bike with a very powerful motor. The batteries are so big you have to carry them in a backpack!

MTB Cycletech had lots of touring/trekking/travel bikes to show this year. Some set up as full-blown touring bikes, others as mountain bikes with bikepacking bags. They extensively used Pinion 18s gearboxes, Rohloff hubs and Gates Carbon Drive across their range. What a great line up!

With the exception of new product colours, Ortlieb didn’t have much new gear on show. It’s good to see they have extended their reflective fabrics to their smaller bags.

  1. Any notion of the model names for the new Intec and Tout Terrain adventure touring bikes? I would love to find more pictures.

  2. Sad to see there are no more than ONE drop bar touring 29er for 2″ tires. One must digress to the nice, albeit costly option of a custom frame if one has the means, or settle to the gamble game and wait for a Fargo to be available in the right size. Or make a frankenbike and deal with all the subtle size problems/workarounds associated with shortening and heightening the reach and stack of a frame designed for flat bars; to use with drops.

  3. I did and it has been the nicest list I’ve seen yet for drop bar touring 29ers. Unfortunately my tastes are so refined for what I do that I require Titanium or Carbon to reduce vibration WHILE being easy to climb with at speed. I will be spending about 16 hrs in the saddle each day within 2 yrs time and need to be able to climb competitively. So with my specific needs, I can get a TI Fargo (no longer made) or Carbon Cutthroat (VERY hard to get) or go custom.

  4. Hi Alee! Is 26″ wheels out on touring/adventure bikes, and what is your take on 28 spokes rims that many seems to use on 29ers even with front rack.?

  5. With lots of 29″ rim and tyre options out there, this will likely be the common size chosen for adventure touring bikes in the future. With regards to spokes – ideally you’d have 32 or more, but if the wheel uses a stiff enough rim (eg. carbon or really thick alloy), you can build pretty strong wheels with 28 spokes.

  6. Thanks Alee. Maybe 29 er and revelate designs bags is the future for adventures /touring biking. I have a Univega 700 and a topeak trailer.works great, but maybe i will try som of revelate designs frame and handlebar bags this year for easy travelling.
