Matrix Fitness – Prendas has added 2 impressive partners to their line-up for 2012. FFWD wheels and CycleOps Powertaps will be evident on the team’s Velocite Geos bikes as the riders look to take on all of the UK’s major races, as well as featuring in UCI events in Europe.
FFWD Fast Forward is a young, high-end brand, specializing in high speed Carbon wheels. Their goal is to deliver fast, lightweight and durable wheels to the Road, Cyclocross, Track & Triathlon markets. “With our young squad and big ambitions, FFWD is the perfect partner for us. The wheels are outstanding and we can’t wait to use them” commented Team Manager, Stefan Wyman.
“The race wheels are excellent and to have them in combination with the CycleOps PowerTap G3 on our training wheel sets is amazing. The advantages we’re going to have with race and training data will be second to none. In fact we have the same set up now in terms of wheels as ProTour men’s team Vancansoleil – that’s something we’re very proud of, and we’re very grateful to CycleOps and FFWD for their support”.
“These partnerships stem from our relationship with Paligap who have been supporting the team since its inception in 2010. Paligap has also renewed their agreement to provide Ritchey products to us, providing an enviable setup to take to the major events this year” continued Wyman.
“Throughout the year we’ll also be providing expert analysis of the riders’ PowerTap data on our website. This will be supplied by Dan Fleeman, of Forme Coaching, and should provide the team’s followers with an excellent insight into what it takes to ride in the women’s peleton at a top level in the UK and Europe.
