2020 Eurobike Special Edition on the right track

Friedrichshafen – The Eurobike Special Edition (24 to 26 November 2020) in Friedrichshafen will be one of the few trade shows this year to take place as a live, physical event and not online. There is a comprehensive hygiene and health and safety concept in place to protect all participants. “We understand that the bike industry wants to meet up and discuss matters in this exceptional year. Eurobike 2020 at the end of November is an important opportunity for everybody to gain perspective,” explains CEO Messe Friedrichshafen, Klaus Wellmann. Nearly 400 exhibitors are expected to attend the industry get-together at Lake Constance. The effects of the Corona pandemic and the post-season scheduling have made it a challenge to organise a big trade show in the current climate. “Larger formats and internationality are understandably more like limiting factors at present.

REPETE: Unveiling of the new gravel groupset Campagnolo EKAR 1×13

A visual connection on symbolic planes. Through this, it is possible to understand the design of the Repete Verne bike, which was created in connection with the launch of a novel product by the Italian manufacturer, Campagnolo. Today, the brand is making history as they release their first single-chainring gravel groupset, EKAR 1×13, designed for off-road riding. We were given the opportunity to test the groupset in advance on Czech trails. It is the iconic marking of the trails that inspired the motif of this unique bike. You can also find Campagnolo EKAR in our component selection. Graphic designer, Martin Kolerus, is behind the visual appearance of the frame. The graphic elements are based on the unique Czech tourist trail markings, unifying the tricolor representations of both countries. The green arrow, like a solitaire, offset from the remaining elements, points to the crankset at the center, and draws attention to […]
