The new Look 695 Aerolight at Cofidis, the new, more sculpted Orbea Orca and Pioneer power meters were all present on the first stage of the 2013 Tour de France.

Tyres from Schwalbe – called the One – carried the company’s First Ride stamp, a sure sign that some new road tyres are on the way.

French team FDJ appeared to be using a new, cut away fork on the Lapierre Xelius EFi frame too: the leading edge had a cutaway in the leading edge which housed a Shimano Dura-Ace Dual Mount brake.

Check out the gallery to the right for all the details.

If you missed it, here is part one of our gallery, a quick look at the new Trek Madone, hydraulic brakes on Mark Cavendish's Specialized Venge and Peter Sagan's Cannondale SuperSix Evo.
