Going from "Victorious" to "Unbeatable," that's the goal of the partnership between the Paris Roubaix 2021 winner's team and Prologo. For six years now, the two companies have been working closely together to take riders to the highest level, providing saddles and straps for the team's Merida Sculpture bikes. From 2022, the collaboration will expand further.
The riders and technical staff wanted to choose to use Prologo gloves with the patented CPC cycling technology. Used in "F1" and the military, CPC - Connected Power Control is Prologo's patented system that guarantees performance and comfort through vibration absorption, grip and positional stability. Thanks to its nano-structure, the special 3D conical and hollow polymer reduces muscle fatigue and facilitates airflow by reducing the temperature in the contact area. CPC, moreover, positioned in strategic points, protects muscles, tendons and soft tissues from the stresses that come "from the road" guaranteeing its performance in all weather conditions.
Laboratory studies carried out with teams and research centers show clear results on the benefits of CPC:
+ 15% Shock and Vibrations Absorbing
CPC absorbs shocks and vibrations from the road. It reduces muscle fatigue while improving recovery, performance and comfort.
+ 15% Grip and Positioning
The conical design of 3D polymers that a "Vacuum" effect, ensuring a perfect grip position.
+10% Air Cooling
The space and geometry of the 3D cones facilitate airflow, reducing heat and sweat.
Lycra back provides thermoregulation, flexibility and comfort.
The CPC is also applied on the saddles, with an arrangement called "airing" to dampen the vibrations of the road, stabilize the rider and allow a better airflow, all devices that can ensure maximum performance and comfort. You can find it both on road saddles, such as the Scratch M5 CPC or Dimension 143 CPC, and on time trial saddles, where maintaining position and stability is fundamental.
For all these reasons the team, which in 2022 will see champions of the highest level as, Pello Bilbao (ESP), Damiano Caruso (ITA), Sonny Colbrelli (ITA), Mikel Landa (ESP), Ahmed Madan (BHR), Gino Mäder (CHE), Jonathan Milan (ITA), Matej Mohoric (SLO), Domen Novak (SLO), Mark Padun (UKR), Jan Tratnik (SLO) and Matej Mohorič (SLO), to aim for the highest possible results. Results that in 2021 have already been achieved, with Sonny winning the European and Italian titles as well as his conquest of one of the toughest editions of the Paris Roubaix, and several stage victories in the grand tours.
For those looking for a glove less racing and more with style the Faded model is the right one, both long and short offers all the functionality of the classic road glove, but with a style that can stand out in the middle of the group.
