The Tour may have rolled out of the Basque country and back into France, officially bringing the Grand Depart to an end, but the tech keeps on coming. The Tour is always a hotbed for new bikes, components, and accessories, and 2023 is far from disappointing.

In this gallery, we take a look at a new saddle from Specialized, we don’t look at some valves from Newmen, we keep the corny turned up to 11 with some random painted Nike trainers, and consider a €15,000 turbo trainer intended for use in professional research and healthcare settings. That price is not a typo.
