Peter Sagan had two Specialized bikes ready to race: this Tarmac with 26mm tuibulars on 64mm wheels, then a Roubaix with 30mm FMB tubulars on 40mm wheels. The plan was to switch after the first ~100km of racing, before the cobbles began

Welcome to Cyclingnews' 2016 WorldTour team bikes guide.

Although none of the 18 WorldTour teams have changed bike sponsors for 2016, there have been several changes in equipment at the top tier of men's professional cycling.

Katusha are one of the team's to change transmission for 2016, joining AG2R La Mondiale on SRAM's eTap electronic road transmission although both squads are in the majority with Shimano supplying the lion's share. Campagnolo can count on Astana, Lotto Soudal and Movistar. FSA was set to enter the market with Etixx-Quick Step and Tinkoff later in the year but both teams will remain on Shimano.

Specialized are once again the top bike supplier in the WorldTour with three teams while Scott and Canyon can count on two teams, leaving 11 other bicycle manufactures to supply one team each. Cervélo returns to WorldTour with Dimension Data while Colnago is the most obvious brand missing from the list.

Cyclingnews has put together a list of all the bike manufactures, models, wheels and components the 18 WorldTour teams will use in 2016. For the cobbled classics there will be slight changes in terms of which bike models certain teams use with the added intrigue of which teams will decide on using disc ready frames, effecting its wheel selection and frame model for example.

Cyclingnews has visited various teams' training camps over the winter and has had the chance to take a close look at the new bikes of a range of top riders, including Chris Froome's Pinarello Dogma F8Richie Porte's BMC Teammachine SLR01, and Marcel Kittel's Specialized EQS Venge. Our regular pro bike features will also be added to this page across the season so make sure you keep checking back.
