Riding his second Tour de France for UAE Team Emirates, Dan Martin will race predominantly aboard the lightweight Colnago V2-R frameset and look to continue his streak of three top 10s in as many years at the race.

Paired with the Colnago frameset is a Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupset with the Bora WTO 45 wheels also coming from the Italian brand. Like his teammates throughout the season, Dan Martin is running tubeless Vittoria Corsa Speed Graphene 2.0 tyres at the race, a trend that continues to grow in prominence at the top-tier of the sport.

The Italian theme doesn’t end with the frame, wheels and tyres, however, with Deda, Prologo and Elite providing the Irishman with cockpit components, his saddle and bottle cages, respectively.

French brand Look provide Martin with special Tour de France edition versions of the popular Keo Carbon Blade pedals.
