Editor’s picks from the 2022 edition included e-bikes from British-based bike builder Forme, distributed by Moore Large, with the Peak Trail Pro E and ELS both scoring plenty of attention during the show. Both Thok (distributed by Windwave) and Forestal (Silverfish UK) were also displaying some eye-catching models.

Conversations with Cumbria-based distributor Lyon Cycle revealed their spirit of adventure, which is most aptly demonstrated by apparel brand 7mesh which offers kit for road, mountain and gravel riders. Orro, distributed by I-Ride, offers a range of carbon and aluminium bikes across disciplines, including fixed gear, time trial, gravel, and aero bikes.

FastHouse, distributed by ZyroFisher, offers a range of performance clothing from trail pants to jerseys, and collaboration kit like FastHouse colourway Bell full face helmets. On the componentry side, Extra UK-distributed Enduro Bearings stood out amongst the rest, in part due to the expertise of co-founder Matt Harvey. Check out more product highlights from BikeBiz editor Alex Ballinger here.
