Our partners prove that just because they don’t necessarily race a bike doesn’t mean they’re not on the roster. While each of our 10 team riders is vital to our success on the bike, it’s the partners who support us and, essentially, make our program possible.
For 2010 we are thrilled to be working with an ensemble of some of the world’s most well-known and respected brands. They support us financially, logistically, and emotionally, each sharing our vision, excited about our potential, and believing in us.

Échappé Equipment provides athletes the opportunity to use high-end cycling wheels and equipment through a unique rental program. This program gives athletes the chance to experience the benefits of equipment that would otherwise be inaccessible to them. Elite equipment is prohibitively expensive to entry-level athletes who are unwilling to buy or uncertain about their level of commitment when the activity is so costly. Consequently, Échappé’s rental program provides the best of both worlds; the customers will be able to experience high-end equipment benefits while not being pressured into buying the product.
