Some of these bikes have not even been released yet, but Simon and Tom are on the ground to reveal the seriously fast bikes on show at this year's Tour.

Aero is clearly still king in the pro peloton, and one look at these new bikes proves it - Orbea's Orca Aero gets added stiffness and an overall beefier look thanks to the UCI relaxing its 3:1 tube profile rule. Interestingly, we're seeing plenty of aero options for riders looking to use disc brakes. Michael Matthews' Giant Propel is one of these, brought out just in time for the biggest race of the year. In a similar vein, Alberto Bettiol's Cannondale Superslice made history as the first disc-equipped time trial bike in the Tour de France. We've also got offerings from Colnago and Merida to finish up this tech roundup. Which is your favourite? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
