Team Volksbank will be riding Corratec bikes in the coming season, the team announced Monday. Corratec, based in Germany, uses hand-finished carbon frames made in Italy by Mauro Sannino. Measurements were taken at the team's meeting this fall to fit each bike to its rider, and the riders also discussed "the possibilities to adapt the Corratec frames to their individual strengths and preferences."
According to team manager Thomas Koffler, "After five years on Ideal bikes, it was time to try something new. In the future we won't leave anything to chance. We have found the perfect partner in Corratec; perfect material from a professional environment."
