Almost two weeks ago we organized our second track cycling workshop this year in Grenchen, it was the fourth X-PerienceDay in 2015. In February, we were already on this track and every participant was happy with the great event at the Velodrome Suisse.
This time our guests came from Switzerland and Germany to join the track cycling event. Most of them visited for the first time a cycling track and were really impressed about the steepness of the turns (46 degrees), this was really fascinating when they saw it for the first time. They could not imagine riding in that zone, but everyone could resolve it after some laps with the instructors.
After we introduced ourselves to each other, the workshop instructors gave first insights into the track bike and the do’s and dont’s during the riding.
We finished this event with a lot of new knowledge about how to train and behave on a cycling track. We are planning to repeat this workshop later that year and are looking forward to seeing you there!
This week the first edition of the LikeBike Monte Carlo takes place in the heart of the principality. The LikeBike Monte Carlo is open the whole Easter weekend from Friday to Sunday. All products at this exhibition are presented by some of the most exclusive companies in the bicycle industry and beyond.
For that reason X-BIONIC® is one of the few exhibitors there: we will present our latest products of X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini which are soon available at our webshop.
X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini brings the aura of the automobile brand onto the human body. And provides it with the physical superiority that makes it an icon. Exclusivity and aesthetics, dynamics and prestige, crowned by visible technological advantage. At Automobili Lamborghini, the interplay of surface and edge have been made into a design language.
The NiteRace in Monaco
Last Sunday the NiteRace took place at the original F1 track in Monaco. Our British distributor and former pro cyclist Matteo Carrara participated at this unique race the week before the exhibition. Below you can find some pictures that were taken during the event. We will update this post the within the next few days and add new pictures from our booth, stay tuned!

X-BIONIC® is happy to announce two new partnerships with professional road bike teams: Team Raleigh GAC from the UK and Team Hrinkow Advarics Cycleang from Austria. Since 2013 X-BIONIC® already supported the Team Colombia Cycling Pro who had a great race season last year and showed an outstanding performance during the Giro d’Italia. All of these teams use X-BIONIC® high performance sportswear and X-SOCKS® during their training sessions and races. Read more about these ambitious cycling teams in our team overview below.
The UCI Pro Continental licensed team was founded in 2011 and developed continously under the lead of team manager Claudio Corte. One intention of the Team Colombia Cycling Pro is to bring the Columbian cycling spirit back to the world public. In it’s first year of racing in 2012, the team achieved a lot of promising results during races in Colombia and Italy. In 2013 they earned a wildcard for the Giro d’Italia where they showed a great performance during the three weeks of racing there.
“We are really excited that X-Bionic is supporting our team with their hightech products for training, competition and recovery. I fully rely the scientifically, proven technology. My favorite is the Effektor Powershirt as underlayer under my bike shirt during my daily training and competition. Especially the moisture and temperature management help me to be focused on the race performance” said rider Fabio Duarte about his X-BIONIC® gear.
Team Raleigh GAC is one of the most successful roadbike teams in the UK. The UCI licensed Continental Team consists of 12 riders at the moment: “With national champions, World Champions, Olympic medallists and Elite title winners in the squad, plus a promising crop of neo-pro riders, the team are never far from the TV cameras and the top step of the podium.”
Team owner and Sports Director Cherie Pridham said about the new partnership with X-BIONIC®: “When X-BIONIC® approached us I was over the moon. The quality of their products is second to none and the possibility for our team to have X-Bionic technologies is invaluable.”
Rider George Pym mentioned about his new X-BIONIC® and X-SOCKS® products: “They are all great bits of kits and do exactly what you want. The socks are comfortable and are just the right height. The vests are brilliant as well. They keep you nice and cool on the climbs and warm on the descents. Once back to base the compression socks come into their own. You can really feel them working and allow us to do as much we can to make sure we recover in every way we can.”
The Austrian Team Hrinkow Advarics Cycleang from Steyr was founded in 2015. Founder and Manager of the team Alexander Hrinkow created his own bike label Hrinkow-Bikes 28 years ago. His son Dominik Hrinkow is a professional cyclist of the team and manager of it as well. The team consits of 11 riders at the moment.
One word of the team name Hrinkow Advarics Cycleang was created of two words: cycling and clean = cycleang. This is caused by the environment friendly approach of the team: the team cars are equipped with Eco-Drive that reduces the fuel consumption by 10 to 15 percent. The chain oil and bidons are addionally biodegradable and underline their sustainable intention.
From the beginning the whole team relies on high performance sportswear created by X-BIONIC® and X-SOCKS® during training sessions and races, rider Dominik Hrinkow mentioned about it:
“Our products from X-BIONIC® and X-SOCKS® are perfect for me as a road biker. During spring when it’s still quite cold outside I wear the Energizer Shirt under my team shirt to keep me warm during training and races. The shirt is also very well for my warmups before a race, the whole functionality of it makes a very good job. The functions of the X-SOCKS® Biking Pro convinced me as well: they fit perfectly and complete our equipment.”
Last Friday we organized our first track cycling event at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, it was the second X-PerienceDay in 2015. We had lots of applications for this workshop and our guests traveled lots of kilometers to join us there: they came from Switzerland, France and Germany. It was the first time to cycle that way for almost everyone of us and we were excited about the upcoming hours.
After a short introduction we split the group in two parts because we had two session slots at the track. While the first group got their track cycling workshop, the other one got a short product overview from our development department. Before the workshop started we equipped everyone with an X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini Huracán respectively The Trick® biking set and the X-SOCKS® Biking Pro, which were a gift for each participant.
During the track cycling workshop our instructors teached us the basics of this amazing sport step by step. The hardest thing at the beginning was to stay on the track inside the curve because it seamed to be really steep to us newbies. But after some rounds and further instructions every participant was able to ride at the highest point inside the curve. We really enjoyed our rides there and were happy with the instructive workshop. We also want to send a special thanks to our track instructors there, you were really great! The event video will be published soon, stay tuned and follow our blog to see it first!
