2017 Zipp Global Road Teams Lineup

Zipp’s roster of global road teams for 2017 features current world champions on WorldTour teams and future champions on development teams. This year’s Zipp® team roster underscores our commitment to supporting road cyclists at the highest level while also investing in the next generation in the men’s and women’s pro pelotons. The 2017 lineup of Zipp-supported teams includes WorldTour power Team KATUSHA ALPECIN on the men’s side and CANYON//SRAM Racing and BOELS-DOLMANS Cycling Team on the women’s side. Zipp also is proud to support Veranda's Willems-Crelan Pro Cycling Team , a Belgian Pro Continental road squad that features cyclocross megastar Wout Van Aert.

Zipp provides these teams with pro-proven wheels at every rim depth with its Firecrest lineup for rim and disc brakes as well as its Super-9 Disc for time trials. Teams also rely on Zipp’s leading-edge NSW™ wheels for time trials. What’s more, Zipp’s SL carbon and Service Course SL alloy bars, stems, and seatposts provide the fit, efficiency and stiffness demanded by top professionals.
