With a plethora of exciting, new and innovative partnerships, Team DSM today are proud to announce the continuation of their long-standing partnership with Shimano in 2021.
Sharing a vision of continuous improvement and development, the team has worked with Shimano since its inception and their high-quality products have been a constant hallmark in the team’s numerous victories over the years.
Looking back on all of their successes together, Shimano has been an ever-present partner in the team’s biggest wins – from Monuments such as Milano-Sanremo or Paris-Roubaix, to stage wins in all three Grand Tours and to the overall win at the Giro d’Italia – Shimano has been there throughout.
This season will see Team DSM’s Men’s, Women’s and Development programs continue to use Shimano’s top of the range components and accessories including Dura-Ace group sets, wheels, power meters and PRO saddles. Furthermore, Team DSM riders will be kitted out with the latest Shimano RC902 shoes which will provide comfort and performance while pushing on the pedals during races.

Shimano’s Myron Walraven, Sports Marketing and Events Manager continued: “We’re proud to continue our partnership with Team DSM as we embark on our centennial year. We share a similar way of working with Team DSM – always trying to improve and better ourselves – and we feel that it is only natural to continue our long-standing partnership. From Grand Tour stage wins to Monuments wins of both Men´s and Women´s program we’ve seen first-hand the countless incredible performances, their continuously improving elite sport environment and the approach that the team has created, which has been evident since we entered the partnership in 2008. We will keep working closely together to ensure that the Men’s, Women’s and Development programs have the best-possible components and materials so that they can continue to perform at the highest level.”
