Scicon wanted to do something special to celebrate Alberto’s amazing success at this year’s Giro so we decided to make him a very special Giro winner edition bike bag. It’s become somewhat a tradition at Scicon to present GC winners at the Giro and Tour with special edition AeroComforts. We did so with Chris Froome in 2013 following his epic Tour De France win, making him a bright yellow AeroComfort and also presented a bright pink one to Ryder Hesjedal when he won the Giro in 2012.
This year we thought we’d keep it classy with the majority of the bag in black with two stripes across the wheel-circle; one in hot pink and one in white with the text: Giro Winner 2015 and our hashtag #packsaferidefast. We also added the team logo, positioning it in the same place that it is on the 2015 Tinkoff-Saxo Team Edition AeroComfort 2.0 shown below.
After presenting him with this special edition bike bag he said:
I’ve been travelling with Scicon bags for many years now and I’m very happy with their products. I’m very grateful to receive this special Giro Winner edition AeroComfort from them and I’m looking forward to travelling with it soon.
Alberto has been travelling with Scicon bags for many years now, he talks about the AeroComfort 2.0 in the interview here from 2013 where he states:
It’s very important to protect the bike and if you have a bike bag like we have you can guarantee that the bike will arrive safely.
The special edition Giro bag was presented to Contador as a surprise at the end of a quick interview with the riders and management at an event held by Saxo bank on Sunday. You can watch a video summary of the event via Gazzetta TV.
Unfortunately, the Giro Winner Edition bike bag is not available to buy, you have to actually go out and win the Giro to get one! For more information on the standard AeroComfort 2.0 TSA click here.
