While it becomes easy to get bamboozled whilst wandering across the 100,000 square meter layout of Eurobike, there are still some products that catch your eye, despite being tucked away in a dark booth in the corner of a far away hall. Even when you’re exhausted, delirious, and in a post-pretzel food coma. One of the bikes that cut through the glitzy show haze was this striking number from French brand Cavalerie.
Hailing from Lyon in France, Cavalerie is a small-time frame builder that didn’t originally begin as a frame building company. In fact, the company’s first product was actually a gearbox; the Effigear. Also made in France, the Effigear is designed to go up against the likes of the Pinion gearbox used on the Zerode Taniwha we also spotted at Eurobike. But while Effigear sat waiting to be approached by other companies to build bikes around their gearbox, they decided to make their own bikes under the Cavalerie name.
