LEZYNE GPS JOINS THE WORLDTOUR

Lezyne GPS computers debut on the WorldTour this year with the AG2R LA MONDIALE Pro Cycling Team. Lezyne entered the GPS category in 2015 and has rapidly advanced their GPS platform, now headlined by their Mega GPS models.

The French-based AG2R LA MONDIALE races at the highest level of professional cycling. The team competes in Grand Tours, such as the Tour de France, and all of the major Classics, including Paris Roubaix. Lezyne and the WorldTour squad inked a two-year deal that includes exclusive use of the Lezyne GPS computers. The team will also be provided with Lezyne LED lights and tire repair accessories.

 

Lezyne’s electronic product line has grown since introducing LED lights in 2011. Today, the California-based company offers a comprehensive GPS platform that includes full navigation capabilities, third-party platform integration with Strava, TrainingPeaks and Today’s Plan, plus many other features. With the sponsorship of World Tour team AG2R La Mondiale, the head units are validated at the highest level of professional cycling.

AG2R LA MONDIALE has a rich legacy that dates back to 1992. For 2019, Tour de France podium finisher and stage winner Romain Bardet will lead their squad in the Grand Tours. The team also boasts a strong Classics crew, with the likes of perennial podium threat Oliver Naeson, a former Belgian National Champion. Their roster of 28 riders will fight for victories at every race across the WorldTour calendar.

 

“The AG2R LA MONDIALE Pro Cycling Team has a considerable interest in starting a collaboration with Lezyne,” stated Jean-Baptiste Quiclet, the team’s head of performance. “The quality of the products allows us to meet the needs of our high-level cycling. The mapping and the direct communication with our training platform allows us the best coordination and precision work with our athletes.”

Lezyne’s worldwide marketing manger, Dillon Clapp, explained, “Working with a WorldTour team, with guys like Romain Bardet competing for Tour de France victories, will legitimize the work we’ve put into developing our GPS platform, and also raise considerable awareness about our products. The feedback from this WorldTour collaboration will also provide unparalleled opportunity for rigorous research and development for Lezyne.”

The team will use the Mega XL and Mega C GPS computers. As with all Lezyne products, these units were designed, developed, and produced in-house. The Mega GPS line provides best-in-class battery runtime and offers all of the necessary metrics, allowing riders to achieve peak performance. In addition to providing metrics, the navigation on the Mega GPS will guide the riders through races and provide preset alerts, indicating crucial segments in the races.

 

Going forward, the team will provide invaluable feedback that will allow Lezyne to further enhance and innovate the entire GPS platform, including the GPS Ally phone app and the GPS Root website.
