The Bikes and Tech to see at Rouleur Live
Rouleur Live is a unique opportunity to get hands-on with rare and unreleased bikes and kit ahead of the coming season.
Taking place in London on 4-6th November, Rouleur Live is the best cycling show in the world. The perfect occasion to join the stars of the sport, it’s also a unique opportunity to get hands-on with rare and unreleased bikes and kit ahead of the coming season.
Each year our carefully selected exhibitors showcase historic machines and future-facing products yet to receive an official release. That makes Rouleur Live the place to see new bikes break cover and talk to the creators of the industry's finest kit.
Besides meeting Fausto Pinarello and getting the lowdown on what it takes to create some of the most auspicious bikes in the peloton, visitors will also be able to take in the firm’s most iconic machines in the flesh. With fellow luminaries Colnago, 3T, and Bianchi also in attendance, there’ll be the best of Italian design on show.

Joined by more esoteric brands like Titici, Heroin, and Hope - the supplier of Team GB’s track bikes - the entire gamut of racing engineering will be represented.

Training has become both smarter and more enjoyable. A trend accelerated over the last couple of years; most riders will now possess some kind of indoor set up for accomplishing effective intervals or keeping the legs spinning when the weather looks mardy.
Although you’ll have to invite your friends over to show it off, this means indoor training equipment is almost as covetable as the stuff that goes outdoors. We’ve got innovative products at this year’s show, including a launch from British firm, Muoverti, plus new products from Wahoo, Elite, and 4iiii.

Often the largest purchase you can make besides a bike, wheelmakers Zipp, Mavic, DT Swiss, FFWD, and Reserve will all be looking to lure visitors with their radical designs.
We’ve also got all the bits that make the wheels go round. Uniting all three leading groupset manufacturers under a single roof, we'll have the latest from Shimano, Sram, and Campagnolo.
Whether you’re after incredibly wide gravel gearing as exemplified by Sram’s AXS range and Campagnolo’s 13-speed Ekar, or keen to get a look at the new Dura-Ace road group, you’ll find all three on display.
