Men's Worldtour Team Bikes 2021: A Breakdown

The annual merry-go-round of bike sponsorship was in full swing over the winter months. Jumbo-Visma swapped Bianchi bikes for Cervelo with Team BikeExchange (formerly Mitchelton-Scott) exchanging bikes with a swap to Bianchi from Scott. Then to complete the perfect circle, Scott bikes were picked up by Team DSM (formerly Team Sunweb) after parting ways with Cervelo. One word: synergy. For the first time since the mid-1990s, Giant will be absent from cycling's highest echelons while BMC joins Specialized as the only manufacturer with two teams in the men's WorldTour. Below ...

Off the top of my head, I can think of the Fizik Infinito R1 knit, Giro Empire e70 knit, DMT KR1 knit and Rapha Pro Team powerweave shoes that have all hit the market fairly recently employing some form of ...
