Our women’s team’s Canyon bikes, in detail

Feature

We show you the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Team MOV of Mavi García, a model identical to the one the men’s WorldTour squad is using; Movistar Team debuts next week in Valencia.

Just over a week before the Movistar women’s team takes part in their first-ever stagerace as a group in Spain, we bring you a gallery with Mavi García’s racing bike. The former Spanish road race champion will be one of the main references of the Telefónica-based squad, which will lineup at the Setmana Ciclista Valenciana from Thursday 22nd.

Each and every of the training and racing bikes the Movistar Team uses have a sticker on the top tube to indicate whose the bike is.

As it’s custom with the men’s team, Mavi’s bike is equipped with the highest-end Campagnolo components, including the 11-speed, electronical drivetrain system Super Record EPS.

One thing that differs from their male colleagues, who use the Fizik models Antares, Aliante or Arione, is that the Movistar women’s team sits on Luna saddles, specifically designed for them.

The power2max power meters are painted with the two blue tones that dominate the entire Movistar Team gear schemes.

Movistar Team competes and trains around the world with Continental Competition tyres, a reference and perfect mixture of comfort, anti-puncture protection and overall handling and grip.

Mavi’s bike uses the standard wheels for all Movistar Team members: the Bora Ultra 50 from Campagnolo.

The handlebar tape is made of the DSP polymer, property of Lizard Skins. The finish of those tapes includes a Movistar Team logo at the front.

Many of you ask us about which frame size our riders use. Even though all of them are adjusted up to the milimeter to the rider’s physical needs, the frame used by Mavi is based on the Canyon Ultimate’s S-size.

As with the men’s team, all Movistar women’s team’s riders use Look Kéo pedals.

Levers and brakes from Campagnolo are of the same, exceptional quality the men’s WorldTour squad uses.
