FULL SPEED AHEAD IN WOMEN’S WORLD TOUR WITH VALCAR CYLANCE CYCLING
The great progress made by women's cycling is visible to everyone and for this fact two brands always attentive to innovations like FSA and Vision will collaborate with Valcar Cylance Cycling in 2019.
"We are proud to start this collaboration with a young and enthusiastic team like Valcar-Cylance - said Maurizio Bellin, General Manager of FSA Europe. - Full Speed Ahead and Vision believe a lot in a constantly growing sport like women's cycling. Feedback from professional riders involved to the most important competitions of the UCI Women's World Tour calendar will be also really important for developing our products and increasing the visibility and awareness of our brands".
K-FORCE WE GROUPSET IN ACTION
In 2019 season the Valcar-Cylance athletes will be powered by the K-Force WE Wireless-Electronic "hybrid" groupset, one of the new features of Full Speed Ahead. This impressive item will represent a great advantage during the races. This groupset exploits the Ant+ wireless protocol for the communication between the gear levers and the derailleurs, allowing however a considerable saving in terms of weight.
Moreover the electronic part regards also the derailleurs that are connected with a cable to the main main battery (allocated inside the seat post) in order to guarantee a greater autonomy.
"I want to say thanks to FSA and Vision, and expecially to Mr. Claudio Marra for the beginning of this collaboration", commented Valentino Villa, team rapresentative of Valcar-Cylance "It's really amazing testing the quality of these products and we are very happy because our girls will be able to run with this futuristic wireless-electronic groupset. Personally I'm a lover of technology and, of course, also of cycling, and it's a double satisfaction for me seeing products with this preciousness on Valcar-Cylance bikes".
