Win on Sunday, sell on Monday. Paris-Roubaix is the ultimate proving ground for new bike tech. And this 2021 edition was a big showcase for loads of new tech.
Tubeless tyres, disc brakes and 1x tech was on show big time in Paris-Roubaix and while it wasn’t plain sailing for all the two winning riders both made use of the latest tech trends. In this video we take a look at the winning bikes of Sonny Colbrelli and Lizzie Deignan and analyse some of the tech that was on show, from massive wide tubeless tyres to 1x gearing, disc brakes and much more.
