Powered by X-BIONIC®: professional cycling teams

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.


Team Colombia Cycling Pro

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

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.”

Team Hrinkow Advarics Cycleang

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.”

Track cycling with X-BIONIC

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!

Our next X-PerienceDay (cross country skiing) takes place at the 14th of March and the next track session at the Velodrome Suisse will be at the 10th of April – you can already apply now for one of the limited places at both events!

Pedal for no Medal

*Update 10 February 2015

The project Pedal for no Medal has its first anniversary: one year ago they arrived in Sochi. Some weeks ago they published the video of the trip, a really nice one:

Last week they also received their reward from us because they sent us their X-BIONIC® products they used during the adventure. We sent them a The Trick® biking set plus socks and they were happy:

 

Click here to read the original post about the project from last year

Four guys from Riga started an outstanding project: they cycle from Lattvia´s capitol to the Olympic games in Sochi. They started on January 21st and planned the arrival for the 7th of February, the day the Olympic Games begin. The hardest thing during this 2800 kilometers long ride is their fight against the winter conditions. They have to ride through five countries and about 165 kilometers per day to reach Sochi on the planned date.

Janis, the guy who is one of the organizer of  this trip, told us about about the unusual bike tour:

“To make this not only adventure project, we thought making something good. And what’s more good than helping children. To encourage our followers make donations for renovating Children’s Hospital’s Hemato-oncology ward. Also guys will work as messengers. In special boxes mounted on bikes, they will deliver children drawings and good wishes to our Olympians.”

This aim makes the four guys really sympathic and we wish them all the best for this adventure. Janus also told us, that the team truts in X-BIONIC® and X-SOCKS®, so they easily decided to wear our products during the ride – that sounds great too! Watch their nice trailer:

You can stay updated through their web site or social media, find more information in the box below. They also put a live tracker online, so everybody can see, where they actually are.

A sunny September TeamRide

On the last weekend of September we organized our first TeamRide with the new X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini Biking Wear. The weather was perfect and very sunny, everybody was excited and happy about the upcoming event.

We met in the morning here at our headquarter in Wollerau – about 25 TeamRider joined us. Before we started the ride, we had a nice breakfast and the participants got some interesting insights to our development department and products. After this we went on the 65 kilometers long ride along the Zurichsee. We returned from the easy tour around 1 pm and enjoyed our reward: A delicious pizza.

Mastermind Prof. Lambertz had a final speech to our guests and explained the innovative technologies we use for our products. The day was a big success and we are already planning the next event, stay tuned!
