The Eurobike Demo Day is an opportunity for journalists and punters to try out some of the latest and greatest offerings from international bike brands.

Disc-brake fever has a strong grip on many of the premium brands’ offerings: Pinarello, Specialized and Colnago’s disc frames were on fast turnaround times all day.

Elsewhere, Abus revealed a performance road helmet with an integrated visor, Lightweight showed off its revised 900g Meilenstein Obermayer wheelset and Focus displayed a 5.35kg Izalco Max frame.

Tomorrow the show gets underway properly in Friedrichshafen and BikeRadar will delve into the nitty-gritty of the show. Click on the gallery to see some of the tech on show at Demo Day.
