COFIDIS AND FULCRUM
COFIDIS AND FULCRUM
17 January 2020
We are happy to announce that for the 2020 season Fulcrum will be working alongside World Tour Team Cofidis, an ambitious team and a benchmark for many years on the international professional cycling scene. A team that, with Elia Viviani, has a strong presence at major events and can also provide an excellent opportunity for product development consultancy.
For the 2020 season we will also continue our partnership with the Belgian ProTeam CIRCUS - WANTY GOBERT.
Both teams will be racing with the top of the range disc brake models Speed 40T DB and Speed 55T DB.
European Champion, 97 professional victories
"We know since many years that top-level teams and great champions have won with Fulcrum wheels. The wheel is an essential component of our equipment. It is the last piece that makes the transition between the bike and the road. Whether it's for Spring Classics specialists, mountain climbers or sprinters, Fulcrum provides valuable technical experience that will allow us to make our best in every race."
17 professional victories
"Joining the UCI World Tour obliges us to have strong ambitions for the New Year. We owe it to ourselves not to neglect any detail, particularly the technical aspects. Joining forces with Fulcrum illustrates how much we all want to achieve our aims.”
2nd French rider in the UCI ranking
"It's a brand I know well, I've been riding with them since I was a professional cyclist. I'm very happy to continue riding with this brand and I'm convinced that Fulcrum will allow the whole team to live up to its ambitions in this new season.”
General Manager of Cofidis Competition
"Wheels are an essential component of performance. Riders such as Elia Viviani, Guillaume Martin and Jésus Herrada pushed us to create this partnership, seduced by the brand's reputation, by its capacity to innovate constantly and by the quality of the wheels. We are convinced that the partnership with Fulcrum will allow our riders to gain in efficiency and to raise the team's colours high.”
General Manager of Fulcrum Wheels
"When the Cofidis team got together to evaluate which would be their best possible choice of technical partner for wheel-sets, we met and this was the beginning of a fantastic new partnership between Team Cofidis
and Fulcrum Wheels. The team was already well aware of the quality and performance features for which Fulcrum wheels are universally renowned and Cofidis was basically determined to go for the best practice in the market. Whereas at Fulcrum we were searching for a World Tour Partner that could properly represent our high-end products and image while sharing our common values which stand for unconditional commitment
to the best performance with unmistakable style."
