BORA-hansgrohe Team (Germany) - Press Release: From 1st January 2023, the Munich glove specialist Roeckl Sports and the internationally renowned Raubling-based pro cycling team BORA – hansgrohe entered into a partnership. The agreement has at first been decided upon for the next three years. In addition to their common Bavarian origins and similar values, the two entities are above all united by their passionate commitment to cycling.
Through this step, the Roeckl Sports brand, as a sponsor, will be working particularly hard to provide the team’s riders with the best possible material during intensive training rides and races. With the help of the aerodynamic models developed for them, a new standard has been created that offers an optimum balance between comfort and grip safety in every situation - at the lower handlebar or in brake grip position, when changing gears, or during a tough final sprint.
