If there is one thing that characterises the Sea Otter Europe exhibition area it’s the wide range of exhibitors, who are capable of satisfying the curiosity of cyclists from all disciplines. From MTB to gravel and from road to city bikes. The growing involvement of international brands at the fair will mean that a large number of new products that have just reached the market will be on display.
Brand-new bikes fresh off the assembly line
Being able to see so many new products in one place is one of the major attractions of Sea Otter Europe Costa Brava Girona by Continental. For brands like Canyon, a pioneer and leader in online bicycle sales, it’s an exceptional opportunity to showcase their products directly to their potential customers. These will include the new Canyon Lux World Cup, the XCO bike used by Loana Lecomte to win the European Championship, launched just a few months ago.
One of the bikes that will be seen in public for the first time at Sea Otter Europe Costa Brava Girona by Continental will be the Wilier Usma, the Italian brand’s new rigid MTB presented just a few hours ago. Factor Bikes made its début in the world of MTB this year and its two models, the Factor Lando XC and HT, will feature at its stand.
People who visit BMC will be able to admire the BMC Kaius, the new bicycle created by the Swiss for gravel racing with which they aspire to win the first Gravel World Championship with Pauline Ferrand-Prevot.
The Scott brand will also impress us with its innovations for 2023, although they don’t want to reveal the models they’ll present yet, so you’ll have to go to the festival to find out for yourself.
E-bikes are the major players in the market in terms of increased sales in recent times, and practically all the brands offer models for this segment. Husqvarna is one of the most impressive ones due to its pedigree in the motor world. The new Mountain Cross MC6 will turn everyone’s heads. E-bikes have such a big market share that there are brands entirely focused on these kinds of bicycles. This is the case of Rotwild, with a range that includes new lighter and more compact models geared towards the high range and maximum performance. The Haibike Lyke, launched a few days ago, is another excellent example of this new trend towards light e-MTBs that will also be on view at Sea Otter Europe Costa Brava Girona by Continental.
