The riders are the best in the world and they ride the most advanced bikes money can buy — in fact, the Tour de France is cycling’s biggest shop window for sponsors, putting the latest machines in front of the paying public.</p>
<p>That means we’ve seen a heap of bikes launched ahead of this year’s Tour, from Cannondale’s new aero-optimised <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/cannondale-supersix-evo-2020/">SuperSix EVO</a> to Scott’s cable-free <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/scott-addict-rc-disc/">Addict RC Disc</a>, and Specialized’s <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/specialized-sworks-shiv-tt-disc/">S-Works Shiv TT Disc</a> time trial bike. You can also expect to see the new <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/road-bikes/wilier-triestina-zeroslr-review/">Wilier Zero SLR</a> — and will <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/road-bikes/cube-litening-c68x-slt-review/">Cube’s Litening C:68X SLT</a> make an appearance at the race?</p>
<p>We’ve put together a complete list of the bikes in this year’s Tour de France, along with the kit they’re fitted with, and have picked out some of the trends to keep an eye out for at the 2019 race.</p>

<p>The last couple of years have seen an explosion in aero bikes and equipment, with manufacturers fighting to out-integrate one another.</p>
<p>While some riders will still favour so-called climbing bikes, aero machines are now lighter and more versatile than ever before, and bikes such as the Scott Addict RC Disc — which used to be placed in the lightweight category — <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/scott-addict-rc-disc/">now sport aero features</a>.</p>
<h2>Disc brakes: yep, we’re still having <em>that</em> debate</h2>

<p>Rim brakes seem to be disappearing from the upper reaches of some brands’ ranges, with the likes of the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/road-bikes/specialized-venge-pro-review/">Specialized Venge</a> only available with disc brakes, but you’ll still see plenty in use by the pros.</p>
<p>Pro riders are often resistant to change and some have previously voiced safety concerns over the use of disc brakes in bunch racing. Nevertheless, <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/uci-finally-approves-disc-brakes-for-road-racing/">the UCI approved disc brakes for use on the road</a> just in time for the 2018 Tour.</p>
<p>With sponsors keen to promote their latest and greatest disc-equipped aero bikes, you can expect to see plenty of rotors at the 2019 Tour.</p>
<h2>12-speed: so hot right now</h2>

</div>
<p>With the recent launches of top-tier 12-speed groupsets from both <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/campagnolo-12-speed-record-and-super-record-groupsets-launch/">Campagnolo</a> and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/groupsets/groupset-road/sram-12-speed-red-etap-axs-hrd-review/">SRAM</a>, it’s clear that 12-speed has arrived on the road.</p>
<p>Saying that, <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/groupsets/groupset-road/shimano-dura-ace-di2-r9170-first-ride-review/">Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di2 (R9150/R9170)</a> is by far the most used groupset by Tour de France teams, and that’s still 11-speed.</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/road-bike-groupsets-everything-you-need-to-know/">Road bike groupsets: everything you need to know</a></li>
</ul>
<p>If Shimano sticks to its usual pattern for product updates, it’s more than likely that a new Dura-Ace groupset will launch in 2020. Given current trends, it seems almost inevitable that R9200 (or whatever it ends up being called) will be 12-speed. Might we see a sneak preview at the 2019 Tour? It seems unlikely, but it’s not impossible.</p>
