Fabio Aru will begin his season and the build-up to the Giro d'Italia at the Tour of Oman this week. The Italian will be doing it on his new Argon 18 Gallium Pro after Astana partnered with the Canadian company over the winter.

Aru will ride the medium size Gallium Pro, but his height means that a few adjustments have been made such as the headset spacers. The bike will be fitted out with the team standard Shimano Dura Ace Di2 groupset with cranks and finishing kit from FSA, with FSA brake callipers, too. Aru's set-up features 11-28 Shimano Ultegra cassette on the back and a 53-39 on the front.

Pedals are supplied by Look with the team using the Keo 2 design. While the Aru's bike was kitted out with Vision Metron 40s for the team's training camp last month, he and the team will be using Corima wheels with Schwalbe tyres in 2017. For his saddle, Aru has opted for the flagship Prologo Zero C3 design, while several of his teammates have been using the Nago Evo.
