Team Sunweb will continue to ride the bikes of former title sponsor Giant and Liv for the 2018 season.
Several key changes for the men’s bikes include Shimano’s new power meter, and swapping out Shimano wheels for Giant’s own line of carbon race wheels.
The men’s and women’s bikes are equipped with full Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 electronic groupsets, while Giant provide the wheels and finishing kit for the Giants and Livs respectively.
The women’s team’s and development squad’s bikes are paired with Pioneer power meters, which also supplied the men’s team in the 2017 season.
Giant is the biggest bicycle company in the world and produces an array of models for men and women, the latter models branded as Liv Cycles. Based in the bicycle production hub of Taiwan, the brand also produces an array of high-end finishing kit for both the teams’ bikes, including saddles, bottle cages, cockpits and wheels.
The women’s team raced on the Giant SLR 0 series wheels in 2017 and the men’s team have swapped out Shimano wheels for their own line for the first time this year.
The development squad are equipped with the slightly older Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 series groupsets and have been training on disc brake-equipped Giant TCRs.
