Tour Down Under: New bikes and tech for WorldTour teams - Gallery

All the gear for the first WorldTour race of the year

The first WorldTour race of the season, the Tour Down Under, puts all of the newest bikes and tech on display together for the first time of the 2017 season, and thanks to Belgian photographer Tim De Waele, Cyclingnews has compiled a huge gallery of images and information about which teams are using which new fancy gear.

We've already covered Team Sky's Pinarello Dogma F10 extensively, with a close look at Geraint Thomas' bike, and highlighted Peter Sagan's Specialized Venge ViAS DIsc, which is on test in Adelaide. The only team missing from this gallery is Quick-Step Floors.

From what we see, the Continental Competition Pro is the tyre of choice for most teams, with eight of the 18 opting for this tyre. Vittoria are on five teams' bikes, while Astana use Schwalbe, Trek-Segafredo the boutique hand-made Veloflex tyres, and Cannondale-Drapac use Mavic wheels and tyres. Quick-Step and Bora-Hansgrohe are using Specialized's Turbo Cottons.

Check out our WorldTour team bikes guide for 2017 to see the list of teams, their bikes and models and components, but also click or swipe through the massive 132-image gallery above and see what kind of unique, prototype or special components you can spot.
