Look at next year's road bikes, right now

Gallery: 2018 bikes and kit at Eurobike Media days, including new Ultegra Di2

Held in the mountains of northern Italy, the Eurobike Media Days were one of the first opportunities to lay hands on some 2018 bikes. We've picked the roadie highlights just for you, including a look at the Di2 version of Shimano's new Ultegra R8000 groupset. 

There weren't as many brands at the Media Days this year, but we got to admire some choice new aero bikes from KTM and Simplon, along with 3T's genre-bending Strada. 

If aero was one major theme, e-bikes was the other, and it's fair to say Focus stole the show with its stunningly good-looking Project Y. 

Click through the gallery above for all the best bits, and let us know what you're looking forward to for 2018.
