Team Giant-Alpecin winter training

Pro-cycling innovation partnership

The UCI World Tour is the world’s premier annual male elite road cycling tour, bringing together the greatest road races, notably the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia or the Vuelta a España – as well as the most prestigious one-day classics.

Team Giant-Alpecin is the first German-licensed team in the World Tour since 2010 with a mission “to progress the sport of cycling, pushing the limits of technology, innovation and athletic achievement.” DSM’s innovation partnership with Team Giant-Alpecin is intended to help them achieve these goals.

Salomon X Alp mountaineering shoes

The Salomon X Alp range of mountaineering shoes offer the ideal combination of agility, precision and support that mountain enthusiasts want for everything from hiking to technical terrain.

DSM’s high performance bio-based EcoPaXX® polyamide was selected by Salomon for their innovative Edging Chassis, a special plate built into the sole with a sophisticated design that combines two opposites: flexibility (for comfort) and stiffness (for stability).

Neutrogena Sailing Team

Barcelona World Race

Gleistein Ropes, who have exclusively used Dyneema® fibers for their ropes for many years, were official sponsors and suppliers of around 3,000 meters of running rigging to the Neutrogena Sailing Team in the 2014/2015 Barcelona World Race.

The race is an incredibly arduous non-stop voyage of approximately 26,000 nautical miles taking around 3 months, testing both the two men crews and their equipment to the limit, and frequently beyond. Gleistein’s lines made with Dyneema enabled the highly renowned and experienced Skippers, Guillermo Altadill and José Muñoz to take 2nd place.
