It’s the most wonderful time of the year for building bikes for Cynisca Cycling’s (CYN-USA) inaugural season. Cynisca’s jolly Technical Director John Gatch and his elves were busy assembling the team’s initial fleet of bikes for the 2023 season. Cynisca Cycling, a UCI-registered Women’s Continental team, announced partnerships with Ventum for frames, Shimano for groupsets and wheels, Vittoria for tires, WTB for saddles and Arundel Bicycle Company for tape, cages and bags. The Cynisca team will wear Lazer helmets, Mumu Apparel kits and Shimano shoes and glasses.
“We are extremely proud and grateful for the confidence these companies are showing for the Cynisca team and vision in our first season,” said Chris Gutowsky, team co-founder and general manager. “They are putting their support behind not only the athletes but also the behind the belief that women’s cycling deserves sponsorship from the best suppliers in the world.”
The team will train and race on cobalt blue Ventum NS1 frames. These frames shatter the notion that a road bike must be either lightweight or aerodynamic. Every element of the Ventum NS1 has been optimized for maximum aerodynamic performance, and yet fully configured, it weighs about 14.9 pounds. Learn more at https://ventumracing.com/bikes/road/
The frames will be equipped with Shimano drivetrains, brakes, pedals, power meters and wheels. With more than 100 years of experience and innovative research, Shimano products are known for being lighter, faster, stronger and more reliable. https://road.shimano.com/us/
Shimano will also supply the team with comfort and quality from head to toe with Shimano glasses and shoes and Lazer helmets. Like Shimano, Lazer has been at the front of the race for more than 100 years, leading the industry in innovation, design, safety and technology. https://lazersport.us/
The bikes will meet the road on tires by Vittoria, the world’s leading brand of performance bicycle tires and accessories, known for its unique graphene-enhanced compounds and advanced cotton & nylon casings. Many professional road teams confidently count on the quality and reliability of Vittoria tires in all conditions.
Rounding out the bikes will be WTB saddles and Arundel Bicycle parts. Different options of WTB saddles will provide the comfort needed for long training rides or races. https://www.wtb.com/ The final touches include bar tape, bottle cages and seat bags from Arundel Bicycle Company. https://www.arundelbike.com/
