Lezyne has teamed up with the new women’s professional squad Cylance Pro Cycling. Based out of US, the nine-rider team features four Americans, four Europeans and one girl from St. Kitts & Nevis. Cylance Pro Cycling boasts a synthesis of veteran experience, ambitious protégés and an excellent mix of talent that will be competitive at any race they enter.
Former professional athlete and long-time cycling director Omer Kem founded the team with an eye on the newly created UCI Women’s World Tour. In addition to racing, Kem wants to use the team to encourage leading an active lifestyle. “We believe that sports can be a critical component to a happy and healthy life, and we want to empower everyone to get active and achieve their goals,” said Kem in a recent press release. “Cylance Pro Cycling Team members will be role models to athletes of all sports, male and female, not only for their accomplishments on the team, but also as they strive to represent their nations in the Olympics.”
The team will be racing with Lezyne bottle cages and new GPS computers. When not racing, the girls will be outfitted front-to-back with Lezyne gear including saddle bags, hand pumps, multi tools and LED lights.
