Welcome to the team HJC Helmets, Wahoo Fitness and Kendal Mint Co.
This year Wheelbase Cabtech Castelli have welcomed some very generous new co-sponsors to the team and we thought it was about time we welcomed them properly and thanked them for the enormous amount of support and enthusiasm that they’re bringing to the young team of talented riders.
HUGE thanks to our supporting sponsors for helping to keep the Wheelbase Cabtech Castelli team training and racing throughout the busy season.
Kendal Mint Co. came onboard as the team’s nutrition sponsor at the end of last year and they have continued to supply the team this season with a large range of delicious products designed to help the lads train, race and recover as efficiently as possible.
Delicious chocolate-coated KMC NRG bars taste great and include Electrolytes and Vitamin B.
When the fatigue kicks in the Wheelbase lads always have a KMC NRG gel to reach for.
With Lake District brand Kendal Mint Co. and Wheelbase HQ practically being neighbours, working together to fuel the team was a no-brainer and Kendal Mint Co. are really excited to see their brand represented by the team all over the U.K. There’s been plenty of success for the Wheelbase team already this season including stage wins at the Ras Tailteann in Ireland and more recently a Bronze medal for Tim Shoreman at the National Circuit Race Championships as well as a fantastic win at Round 2 of the National Circuit Series in Ilkley where our Aussie sprinter took the win and celebrated over the line with the Kendal Mint Co. ‘Bowman’ victory salute!
The Kendal Mint Co. Natural NRG bars are a welcome source of nutrition, packed full of wholesome natural ingredients.
Iso Mix isotonic drink mix with electrolytes is fast and effective at fueling your body and keeping you hydrated on training and race days.
Good teamwork includes sharing Kendal Mint Co. products with your teammates.
A HUGE thank you to Saddleback Ltd who continue to support the team with various products from their extensive portfolio of road cycling brands. As well as supplying us with our amazing custom designed team kit, produced by premium Italian cycling clothing brand Castelli they are also providing us with a range of helmets from leading brand HJC.
The Wheelbase lads are wearing super-aero HJC Furion 2.0 road helmets this season.
Korean brand HJC have been manufacturing helmets for over 45 years; with their background in motorcycle helmets they perfected the art of aerodynamics and fit in MotoGP racing before moving into the cycling world in 2017. Since then their work with some of the most successful professional cycling teams in the world has informed their design and manufacturing processes, helping them to quickly establish themselves as one of the leading helmet brands on the market.
The HJC Furion 2.0 helmet combines slippery aerodynamics and efficient ventilation.
The Wheelbase Cabtech Castelli team are currently racing in the Furion 2.0 which is HJC’s light and sleek ‘semi-aero’ helmet, meaning it is both aerodynamically efficient enough to enhance performance at high speeds while being well vented to maximise airflow and cooling, keeping our riders cool on even the hottest training and racing days of the year.
The HJC Furion 2.0 road helmet provides crash protection as well as aero-efficiency.
We’re pleased to announce that Wahoo Fitness has come onboard this season as our GPS bike computer suppliers. Our Wheelbase stores have been working closely with Wahoo over the past few years, providing our customers with a full range of Wahoo Fitness products including their GPS computers, powermeters and indoor smart trainers so it’s great to see Wahoo Fitness UK stepping in to help support our young team of riders!
Wahoo Fitness have come onboard to help the Wheelbase Cabtech Castelli team train and race as effectively as possible.
The Wheelbase Cabtech Castelli team are using the Wahoo ELEMNT Bolt GPS bike computer to fine-tune their performance and ensure that they hit all of their training goals in the build up to their most important races of the season. The ELEMENT Bolt helps them to measure their progression and share important training data with their coaches, then post-race the lads are able to look back and analyse their performance, accurately measuring how they performed in the heat of battle.
Wahoo ELEMNT Bolt GPS bike computers help out riders accurately track their training and fitness performance.
The Wheelbase Cabtech Castelli team supported by HJC helmets, Wahoo Fitness and Kendal Mint Co. are having an outstanding season with big wins in the Irish Ras Tailteann stage race and the National Circuit Racing series as well as a fantastic Bronze medal in the National Championships. Those early to mid-season successes have built confidence in the team and our young squad carry that momentum into the second half of the season. A MASSIVE thanks again to ALL of our generous sponsors!
UNITE. FIGHT. BELIEVE!
