Two Italian brands to supply finishing kit for team's Factor bikes
One Pro Cycling have announced that they will partner with FSA and Prologo for the 2016 season, with the two companies providing finishing kit for the team’s Factor bikes.
FSA’s partnership will not extend to the groupset, so we shouldn’t expect One Pro Cycling to be riding the FSA electronic groupset that we saw at the Tour de France any time soon, but they will be using the Italian brand’s seatposts, stems, handlebars, and chainrings, with the chainrings attached to a Verve Infocrank power meter. Prologo will provide saddles and handlebar tape for the British team.
These are the latest in a string of new partnership announcements from One Pro Cycling, with the team having almost a complete kit overhaul for its first season in the Professional Continental ranks. That has meant they will be the first professional team to ride Factor bikes and wear Altura clothing during the 2016 season.
And the team has enjoyed a decent level of success in the opening races of the season, with Marcin Bialoblocki winning the intermediate spring competition at the Dubai Tour and former British national champion Kristian House notching up the team’s first victory of the year in stage three of the New Zealand Classic.
