Dowsett chose to race aboard a Canyon Ultimate as opposed to the more aero-focused Aeroad option from the brand this season, which Dowsett favoured at his previous team Movistar.
Katusha-Alpecin are racing on disc brake equipped bikes almost exclusively this season, with the team pairing their bikes with groupsets from SRAM and wheels from Zipp. Launched in March, the new SRAM RED eTap AXS groupset is a 12-speed drivetrain system, utilising smaller chainrings and non-standard gearing ratios as a result.
Canyon provides an aero, integrated cockpit for Dowsett and carbon seat post while Selle Italia provide saddles and handlebar tape to the team.
