First things first, Edvald Boasson Hagen’s bike looks pretty smart. The majority of the Dimension Data team ride black Cervélos, but Eddy Boss has a special custom paint job celebrating his status as Norwegian national champion.

The resplendent metallic silver finish is complimented by red and blue streaks to reflect the Norwegian Flag. Boasson Hagen also has name written on the top tube with the insignia “2015 Norsk Mester.”

Boasson Hagen’s custom paint job

At 5’11 Boasson Hagen is riding a 54cm S5 frame with an Enve 130mm stem and has his saddle quite far forwards, favouring a Fizik Antares VS with a relief channel.

Dimension data are using Rotor’s new In2power double sided power meter with Boasson Hagen favouring standard round rings over Rotor ovalized ones. Pedals are Speed Play and Dimension Data also use Ceramic Speed bearings throughout the bike.

Excluding the Rotor chainset, the groupset is full Shimano Dura Ace Di2 with sprint shifters on the handle bars. It is likely that the bike will be fitted with the new Rotor Uno groupset later in the season. Dimension Data has some of the tastiest kit in the pro peloton, with Cervélo frames complimented by Enve wheels and finishing kit.

The bike is fitted here with Enve 4.5 tubulars built on DT-Swiss 240 hubs. Tyres are the hugely popular 25mm Continental competition Pro Ltd Tubulars. The cockpit is all supplied by Enve too, with Boasson Hagen opting for a compact round bar over the aero set ups available to him.

This is probably the coolest looking national champions bike in the pro peloton. Will we see Eddy Boss winning the Tour of Britain on it a 3rd time on this machine?
