Team DSM get the base to power performance in 2021 with PRO saddles

Partner Updates

After numerous years of great cooperation and many successes together already, Team DSM are delighted to announce that PRO will continue to support the team in 2021 and beyond. PRO will provide the team with saddles, allowing the team’s Men, Women and Development programs the perfect perch for their unique anatomy and riding styles.

Guided by data from industry-leading scientific studies PRO has developed a range of road saddles to suit every rider perfectly. Whether that be the team’s world class athletes to keen amateurs and social riders, PRO have a saddle to fit everyone’s needs. The feedback from the team’s elite cyclists and experts has been used by the PRO designers and engineers to keep innovating and improving on their saddles – something the team is really proud of. As a result this partnership, at the highest level of the sport, not only benefits the team but also directly benefits all cyclists.

The team has access to the full range of PRO saddles in 2021, although the most common ones used are the Performance versions of the Falcon, Turnix and Griffon saddles, as well as the Stealth Carbon and Stealth.

“We are very happy to continue the relationship with PRO,” Team DSM’s Commerce Manager Jente Rijpstra said. “We have a great working relationship with their product team and we’re delighted to see how our product feedback has been incorporated over the years in to the designs of the PRO saddles we’re riding this year. We are confident that PRO’s blend of performance, comfort and positioning will give Team DSM a competitive edge, especially as fatigue kicks in later in the season.” 

“Aside from being incredibly proud to see how the riders at Team DSM take time to understand our technologies and choose their saddles based on their characteristics we’re also thrilled to see our products performing again at the highest level,” Alexa Cunningham, PRO Marketing Manager added. “PRO has been providing world-class products to teams at the pinnacle of the sport since 1989 and we look forward to seeing our saddles in action on the bikes of riders like Romain Bardet, Tiesj Benoot, Coryn Rivera and Liane Lippert.”

“There has been a lot of change at Team DSM in the off-season,” Cunningham continued. “The team changed title sponsors and switched to SCOTT bikes. Being able to remain one of the squad’s consistent partners during this exciting period showcases PRO’s commitment to building lasting and productive relationships. To that end we are excited by the possibilities offered by collaborating with the team’s new partners. By working together at the highest level we can continue to innovate, produce and test products which are race-proven and available to cyclists of all levels.”
