For reasons we're all acutely aware, the past few years have seen a distinct lack of in-person cycling trade shows where brands can load up their stands with their latest and greatest creations for the public - and the media - to get up-close and hands-on with. But if the past few weeks are anything to go by, there's light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel; we recently brought you our tech gallery from Sea Otter, and now it's the turn of the Cycle Show at Alexandra Palace in London. 

Walking the aisles of the show, there was a host of new product launches on display, as well as previously unseen tech and prototypes to give us a taste of what's to come in the future, and while dozens of things caught our attention, we've rounded up the five most exciting below.

Josh has been with us since the summer of 2019 and throughout that time he's covered everything from buyer's guides and deals to the latest tech news and reviews. On the bike, Josh has been riding and racing for over 15 years.

He started out racing cross country in his teens back when 26-inch wheels and triple chainsets were still mainstream, but he found favour in road racing in his early 20s, racing at a local and national level for Somerset-based Team Tor 2000. 

These days he rides indoors for convenience and fitness, and outdoors for fun on road, gravel, 'cross and cross-country bikes, the latter usually with his two dogs in tow.
