On the eve of the 2019 Tour de France, CCC Team and Giant unveiled the all-new wheels, components and finishing kit brand Cadex, which is being used by the team during this year's race.

Patrick Bevin arrived with the team on the hunt for stage wins, but a crash early in the race and the subsequent broken ribs caused the New Zealander to be the first rider to abandon this year's race ahead of the start on stage 6.

Ahead of the race, Bevin's Giant Propel Disc was equipped with new wheels and saddle from the new Cadex brand, with the components paired with a Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 drivetrain and brakes.

The Cadex range also extends to time trial wheels, which CCC Team used on the stage 2 team time trial, and tyres, however, Bevin's bike was paired with the team's usual Vittoria Corsa Speed tubulars ahead of the race start in Brussels.
