Tour de France bikes, gear and tech

Tour de France bikes  gear and tech

The latest pro gear from the biggest bike race in the world

The 104th edition of the Tour de France begins with a Grand Départ on 1 July in Düsseldorf, Germany, and finishes on 23 July in Paris.

Team Sky rider Chris Froome will be back to defend his 2016 title and looking to add a fourth overall win to his palmarés.

As ever, BikeRadar will be bringing you the lowdown on the bikes and gear that keep the Tour de France rolling. Manufacturers often debut unreleased products at the Tour, so we’re excited to see what they bring along this year. 

We’ve already spotted new machines from Merida, Specialized and Trek at the Critérium du Dauphiné, and we’re expecting there’ll be more to come.

Last year we were all wondering who'd get caught with a motor in their seat tube (no one, as it turned out), and we ogled brand new bikes from Orbea and Bianchi, among others. Ford brought along the best team car, while fancy new helmets were in abundance.
