Fri 18 Jan 2013

Orica-GreenEDGE and SCICON Technical Bags have announced their partnership for the 2013 season. Italian bike bag manufacturer SCICON Technical Bags is the official technical supplier of customized bike bags in the 2013 season and supplies the team with the premium bike bag model AeroComfort 2.0 TSA in custom team design. 

"SCICON's bike bags provide excellent protection against damages in transit, comfort and ease of handling," declared General Manager Shayne Bannan, and he added: "organizing air transport for up to 20 bikes to be flown down under used to be a logistical masterpiece and with the help of SCICON we can now master this exercise in the minimum time required with perfection and peace of mind" 

Accurate bike fit is one of the single most important factors for optimal performance and efficiency, injury prevention, and comfort on the bike. SCICON’s AeroComfort 2.0 TSA model is equipped with an unrivalled feature, that allows to keep the handlebar and seat post in place. This feature compliments the efforts of accurate bike fitting as well as the ease of handling for the individual riders who use the bike bag on trips. 

Founded in 2011, ORICA-GreenEDGE competes in the UCI World Tour. With a stellar debut on the tour of down under with overall victory by Simon Gerrans followed by victories of Milan Sanremo, the Australian Road National Championships, Volta Ciclista a Catalunya and Circuit Cycliste Sarthe the team has set out to finish races on a high note and has set ambitious goals for the 2013 competitive season. 

Australian Road Race and Time Trial Champion Luke Durbridge is joined by Australian Simon Gerrans and current Canadian time trial champion Svein Tuft. 

Co-sponsor of the team is Swiss based bicycle manufacturer Scott. The bike bag choice to protect the team’s bikes, such as the Scott Foil and Scott Plasma time trial bike, is SCICON’s AeroComfort 2.0 TSA.
