Osprey, the leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions, has been announced as official sponsor of the Trek-Segafredo Men’s and Trek-Segafredo Women’s cycling teams for the 2021 season. The World Tour team competes internationally from January through to October. As official sponsor, Osprey will supply packs to support 43 racers who compete in 125 races over 300 race days and across 12 countries. Trek-Segafredo’s Men’s and Women’s teams both race in the top tier of professional cycling and are the road racing division of Trek Factory Racing, Trek’s in-house racing programme.
“Life in a professional cycling team is one spent mostly on the road, living out of a suitcase. Having gear that can keep up with our heavy demands day in, day out, is vital” said Matt Shriver, Technical Manager of Trek-Segafredo. “Osprey’s commitment to quality, durability and sustainable design make them the ideal partner to equip our teams”.
Osprey will supply each athlete with a Rolling Transporter Duffel 90, a Rolling Transporter Global Carry On, and a Radial day pack. The Rolling Transporter 90 is durable, weather-resistant gear hauler featuring 800D TPU-coated nylon providing incredible abrasion and water resistance. The smaller Rolling Transporter Carry On offers the same durability with travel-specific features. Radial is a feature rich 26-liter everyday pack that expands to 34 litres. It features a tensioned mesh backpanel for highly ventilated carrying comfort, a padded laptop sleeve, and an integrated kickstand to keep the pack upright and accessible. In addition, the teams’ staff will be using Osprey’s Farpoint Trek 75 as podium bags.
“As one of the most respected and forward-looking teams in professional cycling, Osprey couldn’t be more excited to support Trek-Segafredo” said Gary Burnand, Head of Marketing at Osprey Europe. “The Trek-Segafredo team possesses the same level of dedication and passion to their sport as we do in the design of our products. We’re confident our packs will deliver the durability and functionality required to support their rigorous race schedule”.
