New World Tour Team Bikes for 2020

New WorldTour Team Bikes for 2020 – A Closer Look

With the Tour Down Under already over and the spring classics looming, the 2020 season is well underway. Although we’re incredibly excited about the nail-biting racing ahead, we’re equally thrilled about the latest tech, fresh colourways and, of course, the brand new bicycles on display at the start of the season.  

It had to be said, this season hasn’t welcomed too many revolutionary new trends or partnerships. Indeed, INEOS are working with Pinarello for a tenth consecutive season, disc brakes are becoming more prevalent throughout the professional ranks, and aerodynamics remain a crucial part of race bike design.

However, 2020 isn’t a story of total continuity. One major sponsorship change comes from Movistar, who after a 37-year partnership with Campagnolo have switched to SRAM groupsets and Zipp wheels for 2020.

Similarly, there have been a few significant tech updates too. Now, some endurance bikes offer clearance for 38mm tyres to ensure maximum comfort over even the roughest cobbles.  All this in mind, here’s a closer look at some of the new bikes and tech the WorldTour riders will be using for the 2020 season. 

AG2R La Mondiale

AG2R Eddy Merckx 2020 Team Bike

AG2R have made one fundamental sponsorship change for 2020, switching from Campagnolo to Shimano groupsets. Apart from this, everything else remains broadly unchanged. Framesets are provided by Eddy Merckx, wheels are provided by Mavic, pedals by Look and finishing kit by Deda Elementi.

Astana Pro Team 

Astana Wilier Trestina Team Bike 2020

For 2020, Astana have switched bike sponsors from Argon 18 to Wilier Triestina. However, Shimano continue to provide shifting and Corima are still supplying the wheelsets.

Framesets: Wilier Trestina 0SLR and Cento 10

Bahrain-McLaren

Bahrain-McLaren Merida Team Bike 2020

While Merida have stepped back as a title sponsor, they’re still providing the team with framesets for the 2020 season. With this new orange and black paint scheme, the Bahrain-McLaren team bikes are without a doubt, some of our favourite in the WorldTour.

Like last season, Shimano will continue to offer incredible shifting performance with their Dura Ace Di2 group set, while Vision provide wheels and finishing kit.

Bora-Hansgrohe 

It should hardly come as a surprise that Bora-Hansgrohe has stuck with all of their major sponsors from last season.

With a Specialized Tarmac for the mountains, a Venge for the flatter stages and a Roubaix for the rough stuff, they’ll be well equipped for victory, regardless of the terrain. 

Framesets: Specialized Tarmac, Venge & Roubaix

Team CCC 

CCC Giant Team Bike 2020

Team CCC are riding into 2020 aboard Giant bicycles. Wheels are provided by Cadex (a subsidiary of Giant) and the groupsets are, of course, supplied by Shimano. 

Framesets: Giant TCR & Propel

Team Cofidis 

Cofidis De Rosa Team Bike 2020

After ten years on the Continental circuit, Cofidis has finally returned to the WorldTour. Riding De Rosa bikes for the 2020 season, they’ve kept the Italian theme running, with Campagnolo Super Record groupsets and Fulcrum wheels 

Framesets: De Rosa Merak & SKI Pininfarina

Deceuninck-QuickStep 

Deceuninck-QuickStep S-Works Team Bike 2020

Being a Specialized-sponsored WorldTour team, Deceuninck-QuickStep will be riding a Tarmac in the mountains and a Venge on flatter courses. Like last season, they come equipped with Specialized Roval wheelsets and Shimano Dura Ace Di2 groupsets.

EF Education First 

EF Education First Team Bike 2020

EF Education will be riding Cannondale bicycles with a striking navy and pink colourway for 2020. They’ll also be equipped with Shimano Di2 groupsets, Vision wheels and Speedplay pedals. 

Framesets: Cannondale SuperSix & System Six

Groupama-FDJ 

Groupama-FDJ La Pierre Team Bike 2020

Not much has changed about FDJ’s equipment set up for 2020 – they’re riding Lapierre triple triangle framesets, Shimano components  and wheels along with PRO finishing kit. However, we did notice the majority of FDJ riders switching to disc brakes at the Tour Down Under, a trend we think could stick – especially during the harsh weather of the spring classics. 

Framesets: Lapierre Xelius SL & Aircode SL

Lotto-Soudal

Lotto-Soudal’s equipment goes entirely unchanged. Like 2019, they’ll be riding Ridley frames coupled with Campagnolo wheels and Super Record EPS groupsets for the 2020 season.

Interestingly, Lotto-Soudal have adopted a policy of disc-brake only road bikes, for increased stopping power and added modulation.

Mitchelton-Scott 

Mitchelton-Scott Scott Team Bike 2020

Last year Mitchelton-Scott welcomed the new, fully integrated, disc-only Scott Addict race bike, which they’ll be using again for 2020. Again like 2019, they’ll be using Shimano components and wheels, as well as Scott’s in-house Syncros finishing kit. 

Framesets: Scott Addict & Foil

Movistar 

Movistar Canyon Team Bike 2020

This season, Movistar are the only Canyon-equipped WorldTour team. Though, that’s not the big news here. After a 37-year-long partnership with Campagnolo, for 2020, Movistar have switched to SRAM components and Zipp wheels.

Movistar are also planning to ride disc-brake bikes throughout 2020, although, we think key riders could revert to a lighter rim-brake set up for critical mountain stages.   

Framesets: Canyon Ultimate, Aeroad & Endurace

Groupset: SRAM Red AXS

Wheels: Zipp

Finishing Kit: Canyon

NTT Pro Cycling Team 

Team NTT BMC Team Bike 2020

While their team name might have changed, their equipment certainly hasn’t. Other than a slightly tweaked colourway to match the new team colours, NTT Pro Cycling will be using the same bikes from BMC, which are equipped with Shimano drivetrains, Enve wheels and finishing kit. 

Framesets: BMC TeamMachine & TimeMachine Road

Team INEOS 

What’s that old saying? If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. After winning eleven Grand Tours riding Pinarello frames and Shimano components, it should come as no surprise that INEOS are broadly sticking with the same equipment for 2020.

However, keen-eyed cycling fans might have noticed INEOS using Lightweight wheelsets last season, instead of wheels from the official sponsor, Shimano. We’ll be interested to see if this continues.

Jumbo Visma Bianchi Team Bike 2020

Jumbo-Visma are continuing to use Bianchi bikes, Shimano Di2 groupsets and wheels for 2020. Like their Grand Tour winning rivals INEOS, Jumbo-Visma are primarily using rim brake-equipped bikes this season.

Framesets: Bianchi Oltre XR4 & Infinito CV

Israel Start-Up Nation

 

New boys on the block Israel Start-Up Nation will be riding Factor bikes for 2020. With a black, blue and white paint scheme, Ceramic Speed parts, Black Inc wheels and finishing kit, this bike will undoubtedly being turning a few heads at the start line.

Like most teams on this list, Sun Web have kept their bike sponsor from last year, Cervelo, which remain equipped with Shimano di2 groupsets and Dura Ace carbon wheels.

Framesets: Cervelo R5, S5 & R3

Trek-Segafredo 

Trek Madone SLR Trek–Segafredo

No prizes for guessing what bikes Trek-Segafredo will be riding for 2020. With a choice of either Trek’s all-out aero road bike the Madone, the lightweight Emonda or the endurance-focused Domane with behemoth clearances for up to 38mm tyres, Trek-Segafredo riders are well equipped for just about any terrain.

UAE Team Emirates

Colnago V3R UAE Team Emirates

Bar the Stages power meter and Look pedals, UAE Team Emirates will be riding all-Italian superbikes for the 2020 season. They’ll have a choice between the Colango C64 and Concept aero bike, both dripping in Campagnolo Super Record and Deda Elementi finishing kit.
