Intermarché-Circus-Wanty is now riding with performance products "made in uvex" and put their trust in uvex helmets and eyewear for the upcoming seasons.
The Intermarché-Circus-Wanty helmet collection includes the uvex rise and the uvex race 9 for the typical race days. While the uvex race 9 with its large ventilation channels ensures a cool head, especially for climbers and in warmer weather conditions, the uvex rise is the perfect aero helmet. The lightweight helmet passed the WorldTour competition in aerodynamic tests already before the start of the season. Especially for the pros, the uvex rise has been equipped with an upgrade package that offers even more performance and comfort features.
In the time trial, Intermarché-Circus-Wanty relies on the uvex race 8 and thus on the helmet, which proved its top class just a few weeks ago at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii with winner Chelsea Sodaro. A shortened teardrop shape and special dimples on the helmet shell provide optimized air flow and maximum power savings on the time trial bike.
The pros are also equipped with the uvex eyewear flagship models. They can choose between the uvex pace one V, the uvex sportstyle 231 2.0 V (both with automatic lens tinting) or the uvex sportstyle 236 (with interchangeable lenses) in a striking shield look.
uvex has been a known name in the peloton for more than 30 years. uvex athletes have cheered almost a hundred times at the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta a España or one of the cycling monuments. Now the performance products from the German family-owned company are returning to the roads of the biggest races with Intermarché-Circus-Wanty.
The uvex helmets and eyewear were already shown in competition by the riders of Tormans Cyclo Cross Team and will soon also shine on the road in the first races of World Team Intermarché-Circus-Wanty and Development Team Circus-ReUz-Technord.
Together with Intermarché-Circus-Wanty, uvex is working on new performance products. Thanks to in-house development and own production facilities, the rider feedback has a direct impact on new helmets and eyewear. New uvex models are already expected in the coming months.
