Cycling Canada has announced new partnerships with bike parts manufacturer Digirit, and marketing and bike parts distribution start-up BikeAce. Known for their full carbon chainrings, oversized pulley kits and other cycling components, Digirit joins a list of official suppliers ‘helping Canadian cyclists achieve their best performances on home soil and abroad.’
Over the next year, Digirit will supply Cycling Canada with 52 chainrings varying in size from 48T to 53T and 55T to 64T. The variety of gearing suits the demands of Canada’s top endurance and sprint track athletes, whose record-breaking speeds are made possible by the right gear selection. Additionally, there will be preferential pricing for purchasing Digirit products for Cycling Canada athletes and staff.
“Quality drivetrain components are critical for a successful track program and we’ve been very fortunate to connect with an innovative partner in Digirit,” said Kris Westwood, Cycling Canada’s Head of Performance Operations. “Their carbon chainrings are light and stiff and have been the perfect addition to our inventory as we evolve to ever-bigger gears.”
BikeAce specializes in the marketing and distribution of new cycling related technologies. Through its extensive network of manufacturer contacts in Europe and Taiwan, BikeAce introduces new products to the North American and European markets.
