For 2019, Team Dimension Data partners with the Switzerland based bike brand, BMC. While the riders will have their choice of road-bikes from BMC’s line-up, the main bike of choice will be the Team Machine.
Founded in 1986, BMC is no stranger to the World Tour with a bike brand presence in the pelton since 2001. Throughout the years, they’ve seen much success including wins at the Tour De France and World Championships.
As the World Tour Peloton has slowly seen the transition to disc brakes, Team Dimension Data will join the move with a full fleet of disc-brake bikes for the 2019 season. Shimano will provide the hydraulic brake and electric drivetrain for these state of the art race bikes.
“We’re excited about the move to disc brakes with Dimension Data. We’ve had fully developed disc brake road wheels in our line for a while now, and this now allows us to show that technology on the big stage.” said Jake Pantone with ENVE.
“By pulling off the brake track, we can further refine the materials and lay-up for each wheel. Similarly, we can shape the rim where it meets the tire to provide better aero transition from the tire to the rim. The SES disc line-up in which the Dimension Data team will be running is an advantage”, added Pantone.
