Team Sunweb

On race days in the cycling world, the margins are fine and performance is everything. Each extra gram of weight will slow you down; each ounce of energy will push you forward. Whether it’s lightweight protective gear, high-quality nutritional supplements, or even superior sunscreen, science can fuel success. 

That’s why, over the past few years, DSM has become a trusted innovation partner of Team Sunweb – and why we’ll be their partner until at least 2021. Our science-based solutions offer riders enhanced protection, improved recovery and, ultimately, superior performance. Because when you’re facing the final climb at Alpe D’Huez, Passo dello Stelvio, or Alto de l’Angliru, it’s the small things that will make all the difference.

Science fuels success

In 2019, Team Sunweb will be tackling a series of high-profile events on the UCI World Tour, including the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Tour de Guanghxhi. The team’s riders will be making the most of a range of DSM-based solutions to both protect them from potential accidents and enable them to recover better from the challenges of professional cycling.

How? Well, Team Sunweb will be wearing shorts reinforced with Dyneema® to help protect them from abrasions in the event of a crash or fall. The riders will also be provided with a range of specially tailored multivitamin supplements incorporating Fruitflow®, to help them maintain healthy blood flow and reduce inflammation, and PeptoPro®, which aids recovery by enabling better energy preservation and muscle protein development after a race.
