Cortez, CO – January 15, 2021 – Osprey, the leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions, announced it has been designated the Official Bag Supplier of Trek-Segafredo Men’s and Trek-Segafredo Women’s cycling teams for the 2021 season. The USA-registered World Tour team competes internationally from January through October. As the Official Bag Supplier, Osprey will supply bags to support 43 racers who compete in 125 races over 300 race days and across 12 countries. Trek-Segafredo’s Men’s and Women’s teams both race in the top tier of professional cycling and are the road racing division of Trek Factory Racing, Trek’s in-house racing program.
“Life in a professional cycling team is one spent mostly on the road, living out of a suitcase. Having gear that can keep up with our heavy demands day in, day out, is vital,” said Matt Shriver, Technical Manager of Trek-Segafredo. “Osprey’s commitment to quality, durability and sustainable design make them the ideal partner to equip our teams.”
Osprey will supply each racer with a Transporter Wheeled Duffel 90, a Transporter Wheeled Carry On, and a Radial pack. The Transporter 90 is durable, weather-resistant gear hauler featuring 800D TPU-coated nylon providing incredible abrasion and water resistance. The smaller Transporter Wheeled Carry On offers the same durability with travel-specific features. Radial is a feature rich 26-liter everyday pack that expands to 34 liters. It features a tensioned mesh backpanel for highly ventilated carrying comfort, a padded laptop sleeve, and an integrated kickstand to keep the pack upright and accessible. In addition, the teams’ staff will be using Osprey’s Farpoint Trek 75 as podium bags.
“Trek-Segafredo is one of the most respected, forward-looking teams in professional cycling,” said Vince Mazzuca, Director of Marketing at Osprey. “The team possesses the same level of dedication and passion to their sport as we do in the design of our products. We are confident our packs will deliver the durability and functionality required to support their rigorous race schedule.”
Founded in 1974 and based in Cortez, Colorado, in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains, Osprey designs the highest performing and longest lasting carry solutions on the market including technical packs for outdoor, travel and everyday adventures.
In addition to creating top-quality packs, the Osprey team is focused on becoming the most progressive, transparent and sustainable hardgoods brand in the world. From raw materials and chemistry benchmarks to progressive factory code of conduct agreements and programs that extend a product’s end of life, Osprey is taking a truly holistic approach and looking at every aspect of their business to ensure they leave as little trace possible. Osprey’s dedication to create innovative, high performance, sustainable gear reflects the brand’s love of adventure, devotion to the outdoors and steadfast resolve to leave the world better than they found it.
