We dropped in to the Apollo 2016 dealer launch to see what was on offer and you would be surprised at the bikes and brands Apollo is bringing to the market.

Many would have bikes like this in mind when they think of Apollo. Not a bad specimen mind you. 

articleimageThis wicked looking carbon Fat Bike was very impressive. 

articleimageApollo Arctec TT. Apollo may have a hard time breaking into the Tri world but it does allow them to showcase their technology. 

articleimageThe Attain TT is the mechanical version at a lower price point. It still has some very nice lines. 

articleimageApollo are behind the well known ITM brand in Australia

articleimageSleek bar and stem combo. Note a hark back to the "old days"  with no removeabe faceplate for a stiffer front end. 

articleimageCatlike helmets are also in the Apollo stable. For those who only want one helmet for everything the Mixino is shown with and without the optional cover. From road to aero in a matter of seconds. 

articleimageFor those that want it permenantly aero the Mixino VD2.0 fits the bill. 

articleimageThe Catlike as worn by team Movistar in the TDF is undergoing testing now for Aus standards approval. I couldnt resist trying it on and it feels like an awesome helmet. 

articleimageApollo are also behind the Tacx range also, who are an official partner of Ironman. The Tacx Ironman trainer has electronic resistance and comes with a video of the Kona course for you to ride. 

 

We will try and get our hands on as many of these goodies to test as we can when they become available.
