These guys have the reputation as the most demanding team in pro cycling, and it’s true. They’ll push us to be our best.”

“Sportful fulfils all our criteria that we expect from a technical partner. Their clothing is aerodynamic, lightweight and will protect our riders in all weather conditions. With Sportful’s vast experience in research and development we are sure that they will keep pushing the boundaries of technical innovation,” says Bjarne Riis.

All the seams on the team bibshort are moved to the back of the short to smooth the airflow around
the body and help the rider cut through the wind more easily.

Frank Schleck says of the new team kit: “I just got back from my first ride in the new kit. It’s faaast! You can really feel that it’s aero.”

Sportful will make available for sale the exact same products developed with and for Team Saxo Bank.
