True Speed Weaponry for time trials

Tony Martin of the Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Team confirmed his standing as the world’s best against the clock with a brilliant victory in Wednesday's 33km Stage 11 time trial at the Tour de France.

But the story doesn’t end with Martin’s stellar performance. His Omega Pharma – Quick-Step teammates Michal Kwiatkowski and Sylvain Chavanel finished fifth and seventh respectively in Wednesday’s stage. Kwiatkowski’s performance put him back in the white jersey for best young rider. The results underscore Omega Pharma – Quick-Step’s preparation and attention to detail in time trials.

With a sea of aero-wheel choices available, it’s worth pointing out that all three men rode the same Zipp wheel combo – 808 Firecrest in the front, Super-9 Disc in the rear.

It’s the absolute fastest, most stable time trial setup, period.
