Giant is the world’s leading brand of high quality bicycles and cycling gear. Since 1972, Giant has combined craftsmanship, technology and innovative design to create the ultimate cycling experience for all riders, casual to competitive. Through its products, people and retail partners, Giant inspires passion for cycling all around the world.
Giant bicycles are race proven, with victories at some of the biggest races in the world. For 2018, Team Sunweb’s riders will once again have four different models at their disposal – the aerodynamic and super-stiff Giant Propel Advanced SL; the Giant TCR Advanced SL, the punchy, lightweight climber’s favourite; the Giant Defy Advanced SL race ready for the tough roads covered at the spring classics; the Giant Trinity Advanced SL to help power the time trial specialists to victory as well as top of the range power metres and tyres.
Team Sunweb’s women’s team will also benefit from Giant’s innovation and technology, riding the Liv Langma bikes, designed by Giant, and the Giant Trinity Advanced SL for the time trials.
From 2015, Giant has elevated its partnership with the team by becoming the official helmet sponsor. Riders will have a full range of high-performance Giant helmets to choose from, including the superlight and highly ventilated Rev model. Giant has also been working with its world-class team of designers, engineers and aerodynamics experts to develop cutting-edge aero road and time-trial helmets, and these new developments will be proven at the highest level by riders such as Michael Matthews and Tom Dumoulin throughout the season.
For 2018, Team Sunweb’s bikes for all three of its programs will be completed by Giant wheels. Team Sunweb will ride Giant’s Clinchers during training and switch to Tubulars during road races. For time trials Team Sunweb will ride a three-spoke and disc combination, with all road wheel types a 42 and 55mm rim height. All three of Team Sunweb’s Program’s will also ride the 2018 season wearing Giant shoes.
