The bike brand that came out ahead for 2019 is...

More than 30 triathlon and bike industry representatives spent Friday afternoon tallying the makeup of all 2,377 bikes to check-in on the Kona Pier ahead of the Ironman World Championship. For nearly two decades, the annual Kona bike count has served as a bellwether of buying patterns among triathletes around the world.

Toronto-based Cervélo again took top honors in the bike category, adding just two bikes to its total from last year after seeing a dip of 74 bikes between 2017 and 2018. Once again Canyon was the big mover in the count. The German brand added 49 bikes from last year but still sits fifth overall. The three brands between Cervélo and Canyon—Trek, Felt, and Specialized—were all within a handful of bikes of where they were a year ago.
