2020 WorldTour Team Bike Guide | What’s New In The Peloton?


– The Pelaton Merry Go
Round, it’s not just riders who changed teams, there’s
also equipment and sponsors too. So let’s have a look at
the 2020 Bikes of the World Tour. I’m looking forward to this one. (intro music) – [Speaker 2] Ag2R La Mondiale.
As in 2019 the bikes come from Belgium brand merckx,
which is now subsidiary of ridley. The bikes of the French team,
[Akitany] [Inaudible] group sets, Mavic wheels, [Redisign]
tires, Look pedals, Fi’zi:k saddles and the power
meters come from Rota. A classy looking bike. Kazakhstan squad have
changed from [Arbor] 18 bikes to those of Wilier Triestina. And I think are in one of
the best color waves in the Pelaton this year. That blue is beautiful. Group sets and power meters
are from Astana, wheels from Corima, tires are from a small
German brand called Wolfpack. The saddles are Prologo,
the handlebars and stems of Wilier own brand and the
pedals are from Look. The team largely based around
Peter Segan, are sticking with the same brands as
they did use in 2019. So Specialized provide the
bikes, saddles, ties and wheels and the brand Roval, that
the squad use, are actually part of the Specialized brand
when it comes to wheels. Group sets and pedal are
Shimano Dura Ace and they’ll be using disc brakes just like last year. Power meters, well this
year they’re coming in from Shimano. Remember the
last year that the team were using the 4iiii or
Specialized branded ones. Bars and stems can be either
from Pro or Specialized depending on the model chosen. The Polish team, that is
home of Greg Van Avermaet, they continue to ride
giant bikes with Shimano group sets, power meters, and pedals. The finishing kits, such
as the wheels, bars, stems, and saddles all come from
the brand Cadex, which is a stand alone brand but
still sits under the umbrella of the giant brand itself. And finally the tires are Vittoria. Taking a step up into the
WorldTour for 2020, is the French team of Cofidis,
that includes sprinter extraordinaire Elia Viviani. The team moves away from
the [Querta] bikes and now has bikes from the
Italian brand De Rosa. In group sets from Campagnolo, the wheels are Fulcrum, who
are actually part of the Campagnolo group. Tires
from Michelin, and Look provide the pedals. Saddles from Selleitalia,
and lastly the bars and stems are either from FSA or
Vision depending on if their riders opt for the
integrated versions or not. The slight change in name
and certainly the colors but not much else has changed. Bikes continue to come from Merida, and the groups sets and
pedals continue from Shimano. Also the power meters are
now from Shimano, making the change away from SRM. The team have also gone fully
disc brake this year too, it would seem. The tires
are Continental, saddles from Prologo and finally the
bars, stems and seat posts are from FSA or Vision
depending on the model chosen. Belgium brand
Deceuninck-Quick-Step, practically mirror the team of Bora
Hansgrohe in their equipment choices. The only exception, I think,
is that Deceuninck-Quick- Step don’t use supercast handlebar tape. So again we’ve got
Specialized bikes, Shimano group sets, power meters,
and pedals, the rest all come from Specialized where possible. Again the only little
exception is pro handlebars and stems. The EF Pro Cycling team
hailing from the USA, certainly got people talking in 2019
with their interesting kit design. The style was carried over
into the paint work of the bikes. And the bikes
remain Cannondale for 2020. Group sets are Shimano, wheels
from Vision and the bars and stems come from Vision,
if in the one piece variety and FSA, if a traditonal
bar and stem is being used. Tires from Vittoria, and
the saddles, Prologo. Power meter is Power2max
and then finally the pedals are Speedplay. The red, white and blue
team of Groupama FDJ are set to replicate the same
material choices as in 2019. The bikes come from French
brand of Lapierre, the group sets, pedals and
wheels are all from Shimano. The latter being wrapped
up in Continental tires. Power meters, well
they’re also from Shimano. The handlebars, stems and
seat posts, they all come from Pro, which is part of the Shimano brand. And the saddles they’re from
the Italian company Prologo. The newcomer to the 2020
WorldTour is the squad of Israel Start Up Nation, who site
some big name riders. Let’s look at the bike though. The frame and forks come
from British brand Factor. The wheels, handlebars,
stems and seat posts are Black Inc, who are Factor’s own brand. As are the handlebars and stems. Group sets are Shimano with
the ceramic speed oversized pulley wheel system mixing
it up on the [Rederalia]. Tires, are again the new color
to the WorldTour and they’re from the brand Maxxis. Saddles are Selleitalia and
the power meters are 4iiii. Pedals largely a rider
choice but most of them have opted for Look. Lastly things have blinged
up just a little bit more KMC gold chain. The Belgium squad of Lotto
Soudal stick with the same tried and tested, and
trusted components of 2019. We’ve got Ridley frames and
forks, Campagnolo wheels and group sets, Vittoria tires
and Selleitalia saddles. Deda, they provide the
bars, stems and seat posts. And Look remain the pedal sponsor. Power meters, yup they remain with SRM. The Australian team of
Mitchelton Scott, are pretty much like Lotto Soudal,
sticking with the same set up as the previous year. So Scott continued to
provide the bikes, Shimano the wheels, group sets, and pedals. Finishing kits such as the
bars, stems, seat posts and pedals all come from Syncros. Power meters they are Shimano. The tires, they’re provided
by Pirelli, more commonly known within the automotive industry. They’re certainly making
inroads in cycling again after being a popular
choice a few decades back. Former World Rage champion
Alejandro Valverde and his colleagues at Movistar remain
on Cannon bikes but the big change comes in the
news that the squad will be using Sram group sets. Gone are Campagnolo after
a 37 year partnership. Zipp wheels replace the
Campagnolo ones too. And Fi’zi:k continued to
supply the saddles and Look the pedals. Quarq are the new power
meter provider and the tires, yup they are still Continental. NTT Pro Cycling, the new
name of Dimension Data. They will be staying on
the same equipment for the season, sticking with
bikes of BMC, Shimano group sets and pedals, plus Rotor
cranks and power meters. The wheels, bars and stems
all come from Enve and those wheels they’re decked
out with tires from Italian brand Vittoria. The squad will be set
on Selleitalia saddles. Oh and the chains KMC,
the gold one of course. The team that was previously
known as Team Sky. Team Ineos launched last
May and is sticking, again, with the same equipment
choices that they’ve used for a number of years,
pretty successfully you know. The bikes are Pinarello
and the group sets, wheels, pedals, power meters all
come from the giant of the cycling industry Shimano. Riders will be using saddles
from Fi’zi:k and the wheels, well they’re wrapped up
in tires from Continental. Team Jumbo-Visma, a team that
didn’t seem to win a great deal for a number of seasons
really and then showed real strength in 2019. And for 2020 they’ve
boosted the squad, but what about the tech. Well they’re looks to be
just one change in equipment from 2019, let’s see if you can guess it. Frames and forks are Bianchi. Group sets, pedals, and
wheels are Shimano and those wheels they’ve got Vittoria
tires fitted on them. The riders they’re going to
be sat on Fi’zi:k saddles. Handlebars and stems they
come from Italian brand FSA. And finally the power meters are Shimano. What was the change? The power meter. Gone are Pioneer. Another Dutch squad name
Team Sunweb, they’re grand tour TT specialist Tom
Dumoulin, may have left them for Jumbo-Visma this year but
they’ve still got some pretty blinged bits of kit
being used, so let’s take a look. Frame and forks come from
Cervelo and the wheels, pedal, group sets and power
meters all come from Shimano. Pro, they provide the bars
and stems where there are two piece versions, and the
saddles, they are also Pro. Finally the tires,
they’re from Continental. For this team, of course
Trek bikes are being used and they will use Sram
group sets again in 2020. Bontrager provide the wheels,
saddles bars and stems. But a change from last year, is the tires. Pirelli have joined the squad. Quarq provide the power meters. And one of the most interesting
things actually here, is that the team are using
Shimano SPD-SL pedals. UAE Team Emirates. One of
the most traditional squads out there. The team of UAE, Team
Emirates, continue to use the frames of Colnago combined
with the group sets of Campagnolo. But the rebreak
versions. Maybe that will change though. Who knows, keep your eyes peeled. The wheels they are also from Campagnolo. Power meters are Stages, saddles Prologo. Pedals are from French
brand Look and finally the tires are from Vittoria. At this point we are going
to talk though 6 of the 8 women’s WorldTour bikes
that we were able to film at the Santos Women’s Tour down under. Sadly there were two
teams missing because they weren’t obliged to actually
race, but we hope to see them at some point this year.
So check out their bikes. The Italian Slovenian squad
stick with their brightly colored kits for the year. But we’re here to talk bike tech. That team it was formally
known as Ale Cipollini. They remain with bikes from
the Italian brand Cipollini. Of course owned by Mario
Cipollini, the Lion King himself. Group sets on the bikes
are from Campagnolo. I’m pretty sure that Mario
Cipollini wouldn’t have it any other way. The wheels they’re also
Campagnolo, and fitted with Vittoria tires. Finishing kit, again, is a full
Italian affair with Prologo saddles and bar tape and the
handlebars from Deda Elementi. And last but by no means least,
the pedals are from Look. The team that unofficially
has the coolest kit design in the Peloton and also the
incredibly multi-talented pulley [Inaudible] is that
of Canyon Sram Racing. Their equipment choices for
the season remain the same as last year so they’re sticking
with the bikes of Canyon and the group sets of Sram,
just as their team name suggest. Handlebars and stems they’re
provided by Canyon, and Ergon provide the saddles. Quarq relay the power
numbers to the riders through their power meters and
Zipp provide the wheels. And the tires they’re from
the German brand Schwalbe and the pedals they’re from
the American brand Speedplay. Of FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine
Futuroscope will ride the French brand of Lapierre. These are kitted up with
Shimano wheels and group sets. Shimano also provide the
pedals and power meters. The tires are from Continental
and the handlebars, stems, and seat posts are
courtesy of Pro, which is part of Shimano. And the saddles they come from
the Italian brand Prologo. This team has a number of
riders who split that race to pieces and of course homes
the World Rage Champion [Anameek Fanburton]. Here at the Santos tour down
under the riders will be using their old race bikes
but in Europe they’ll be [Inaudible] slightly differently. That difference I will tell you shortly. Now Scott are going to be
continuing to provide the bikes and Shimano the wheels,
group sets and pedals. The finishing kit such as
bars, stems, seat posts, and saddles, they all come from Syncros. The tires are Pirelli. I’ve been reliably informed
they’ll also be using disc brakes. The squad of Team Sunweb
are using identical kit to that of the men’s team. So let’s have a little runthrough. Frame and forks come from
Cervelo and the wheels, pedals, group sets and power
meters all from Shimano. Pro provide the bars and
stems whether the two piece versions, otherwise it’s
Cervelo’s specific integrated bar and stem. The saddles they also come from Pro. Finally, the tires that
wrap up those Shimano wheels come from German brand Continental. Trek Segafredo, who I
think have the best looking clothing and bike combination
in the whole of cycling. Naturally, they use trek
bikes and they’re fitted with Sram’s etap access group sets. Montrager, who are part of
the Trek brand, they provide a whole heap of components,
the wheels, the saddles, the bars, the stems. The tires though, they’re a
newcomer to Trek Segafredo this year and they are from Piralli. – There we are the 2020

  1. 4iiii is pronounced "four eyes" by the people that work there. Their logo looks like an eye looking through a lens, which makes sense as four eyes is, of course, a term for someone wearing glasses. 🤓

  2. 7:41 the stems are BMC, not ENVE. And in some cases riders can opt for the BMC ICS Aero, meaning a bar diameter of just 25mm at the clamp, which means those bikes have a BMC bar, since ENVE doesn’t make those.

  3. Well Jon, They are all my favorites. Why? Because I cannot afford any of them yet I lust after each and every one.

  4. Anyone know where the ol pro bikes go to retire? What I heard was they belong to the team and the rider has the option to buy it at the end of the season. Sure would like to pick up an ol racer with some random pros name stamped on the top tube.

  5. That was heavy, all that carbon overload, way too many to pick just one, each of those could take me to victory. Thanks, Jon, those are spectacular and so is your encyclopedia of brand info, crazy that you know so much about components and how one is related to the other.

  6. Favourites are the Wilier Triestina, Merida, Cannondale, BMC.

    And Canyon SRAM from women’s tour. Party because they use my favourite saddle brand Ergon as well as having the coolest paint scheme.

  7. The Eddy Merckx bike looks like a Ridley Fenix, which looks like a pragma nitrogen, which looks like a chinese factory carbon bike, which they all are actually.

  8. What's the deal with this disc brake hype? They weigh more, have more maintenance and squeaking can be a bitch to get rid of (from what I understand, I don't ride disc).

  9. Great video, but at this time what we need is a video summarizing what tech are being used. Which team is on discs entirely, which is on discs except for TT bikes, which team still will give their riders the choice? Same for tire tech and in which applications, e.g. for mass start stages, for TTs, for uphill TTs, for cobbles or stages with gravel or dirt sectors?

  10. man enve branding team could learn a thing or two from black inc. still can't get over their obnoxious decals & stickers

  11. You forgot to include that most of the time team ineos is actually riding Lightweight Meilensteins. Especially on climbing days in grand tours.

  12. Interested to know, who has final say in the team's is it commercial or technical? Excellent presentation. I thought some of the paint jobs looked to fussy.

  13. Cervelo went too far with aero. We need more classic looking bikes. I like the giant TCR (perhaps because I own one ;p )

  14. I dont know anything about the bikes, but how big of a difference (of any) is there between the "best" and the "worst" bike.

    And wich would be the best and worst.

    Only the most sucessfulm team rides pinello og many teams ride spiceslized

    Just wondering

  15. I have q. About the same subject , can you explain to us how the teams get the component company's to give them the things , in some cases the give everything like shimano and pro and some the saddle will be from different company , or in the case of fsa and vision are they the same company to choose from one of them

  16. Thanks for the great (as always) content. I really enjoy the up close look at the team bikes.
    It was especially nice to see the Ladies peloton included! My daughter loved seeing it, and I loved seeing the look in her eyes when she realized the sport her father enjoys has a women's side as well!! (She's 8, and is just starting to put these things together for herself) Thanks again, and do enjoy the rest of your time down under, Jon!

  17. The AG2R Merckx and the McClaren Merida are the standouts as far as looks go. EF's Cannondales a close third.

    If AG2R would just switch to black shorts … they'd look 1000% better and match their spiffy new bikes!

  18. "The team largely based around Peter Sagan"
    Mr. Cannings seems to be in the mood to stir up some controversy 👀 Thin ice, my friend
    On a side note: Just how lovely is that team Emirates colnago 😍❤

  19. IDK but whenever I see a pro bike without cable integration it triggers me, what's more; rim brakes….I just can't stand seeing those 2 things as a personal preference

  20. There seems to be a lot of turquoise/light blue/green with black and white going on – the first 3 teams featured in the video have that colour scheme! By the way, what's with the cranks angles of the bikes being filmed? I'm afraid not many would get a super nice!!

  21. I’m a huge fan of the Trek, Pinarello, Specialized, Bianchi, and Canyon bikes, if I have to pick my favorites. That being said, nearly every bike shown was gorgeous in some way, shape, or form. These new one piece handlebar setups are really slick, as well as the use of gold chains. The only thing I’m not really a fan of at all are tires with a brown sidewall – like on the EF team’s blue/pink Cannondales.

  22. "The polish team continues to ride giant bikes" can't help but imagining loads of tiny people on something penny farthing-like

  23. I dont know why but i personally dont like camapagnolo, scott and ridley brands. SRAM and Shimano are good, Trek is my favourite and followed by Specialised and Canyon

  24. As to Canning insights, what are the most common "off-sponsor" equipment choices across the pros?
    E.g. Look pedals, particular saddles, or maybe even bar tape

  25. Nice to see a lot fewer of the big fat "aero" bikes that were so 2018… Because with those and disk brakes they would weigh about 9Kg… So happy to see them gone and can't wait for the next Madone to get on a diet!!!

  26. Jon: FSA is a Taiwanese Company that keeps quite a fog about where it is really from and with a few offices in the right place (like Italy and the USA) to be able to keep the illusion going "designed in …" (fill in the blank with a place that is thought to be sexier than Taiwan)… From a rare interview by the owner in 2015 http://www.bicyclingtrade.com.au/interviews/global-leaders/full-speed-ahead-for-douglas "FSA Today we have 460 people in Taiwan, and we have an Italy office in Milan and a US office in Seattle, which each have about 20 staff". By the way, I personally think they make excellent high-quality products…

  27. I think I might have a brain problem: every time I hear someone mention "Giant Bikes" my first thought is: That's a normal-sized bike.

  28. La pierre fixed the 219 paint glitch, looks so much better,
    anyway would be cool for the GCN to spot anomlies all through 2020 🙂
