Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Top teams at every level of pro cycling look to SRAM for the world’s lightest, fastest and most ergonomic components. In recent weeks we’ve announced our new and expanded team partnerships including AG2R LA MONDIALE (France-based UCI WorldTour), Team Roompot (new Dutch team ) and Axeon Cycling Team (premier U23 development program led by Axel Merckx ). Yet our commitment to pro cycling reaches even further into our great sport.

For 2015, SRAM is proud to extend its agreement with DRAPAC Pro Cycling, an ambitious UCI Pro Continental squad based in Australia. In the U.S. peloton, SRAM maintains its support of Team SmartStop Pro Cycling, last season’s emerging winner on the American scene, and perennial power Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies. We’ve added to our roster Team 3M, a motivated and growing program based in Belgium.

SRAM RED 22, the world’s lightest and fastest drivetrain, will be the teams’ componentry of choice. Several teams also will race on SRAM Force 22. Each groupset features technologies including Yaw™ front shifting and WiFLi™ with 11-30 or 11-32 gearing to handle any race situation smoothly. Reach Adjust™ allows each rider to position control levers to the optimal position for them regardless of hand position or size. These teams also choose from the largest range of aero shifters.
