Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, Africa’s first registered UCI World Tour team, is delighted to announce its partnership with NormaTec, the industry leader in compression recovery technology for athletes. Team Dimension Data is adding NormaTec’s PULSE 2.0 Series technology to its training and recovery protocols, and touring with the systems for race recovery.

The NormaTec partnership offers Team Dimension Data riders, who collectively compete in over 250 race days across the globe, access to NormaTec’s revolutionary recovery systems to enable peak race and training performance.
