Stevens Bikes, sponsor of such Elite athletes as US National Champion Katie Compton, current World Champion Marianne Vos, former World Champions Niels Albert and Hanka Kupfernagel, and Canadian National Team rider Vicki Thomas, has released a preview of their 2011 Carbon Team and Prestige cyclocross bikes.
The familiar white, black and orange of last year’s Team model has been given a face lift, with blue replacing the orange and white taking over the downtube. While the frame looks like it will match Compton’s stars and stripes jersey, The US National Champion will pilot a custom-painted ride.We’ve had an exclusive preview of the not-yet-public frame. Compton will be racing in a special “Vegas” National Champion kit for Cross Vegas with elements of the Stevens custom paint graphics in the skinsuit. Stay tuned for an early look.
The aluminum Prestige has shed its more subdued image and taken on a flashy red theme, which is sure to stand out beneath layers of mud.
We’re sure to see these new colors flying around the courses in just a few short months!
