From the 2021 season onwards, the athletes of Team Sunweb’s Men, Women and Development Programs will race on SCOTT bicycles. The iconic, Swiss based global bike brand with American heritage and the WorldTeam today proudly present their partnership.
SCOTT’s large world class engineering team has designed some of the fastest road bikes to date and is fully committed to never settling for the current standard but keep setting new standards for road, aero and time trial bikes.
Team Sunweb’s DNA is very much similar, its distinguished elite sports approach has built a reputation as the “keep challenging” model and is even visually illustrated by its iconic central two stripes on the race kit. These two ever rising stripes reflect the passion to always keep improving, one stripe to show the continuous progress of the athletes and specialists, and the other stripe to reflect the continuous development of the modern performance environment in which they operate. This aligns well with with SCOTT’s “NO SHORTCUTS” approach, to always strive for new ways to make their bikes faster.
For the global high performance bicycle brand and the pro road cycling team to come together one day was somewhat of an inevitable, given the team’s focus on every detail obviously also includes the choice of the best road bikes out there. SCOTT’s passion to design bikes which make the difference is a natural fit to the team with such an eye for detail.
In its pursuit of success in Grand Tours, classics and sprints, the team will race next year SCOTT’s Addict RC for climbing and lumpier races, the SCOTT’s Foil for sprint races and the SCOTT’s Plasma for time trails, all bikes will come with Syncros components, a sister company of SCOTT. Syncros is a bicycle components and accessories brand built on the principle of obsessive, precise design and production through their in-house engineering and design team. Team Sunweb will ride the latest road one-piece cockpit, the Creston iC SL, for Addict RC and Foil with intelligent internal cable routing and ergonomic focused design.
Furthermore, the riders will use the newly launched SCOTT Centric plus helmet, SCOTT’s Cadence aero helmet and SCOTT’s Split time trial helmets.
