Scicon Celebrates the Strongest Friendship in the Peloton: Fabian Cancellara & Roger Theel
A tribute to a cycling legend and loyal friend and mechanic, the SCICON® AeroComfort 2.0 TSA bike travel bag by Fabian “Spartacus” Cancellara & Roger Theel.
Swiss cyclist and legend Fabian Cancellara has decided to bring his highly successful cycling career to an end this season, having competed a final time in this year’s Tour De France.
To commemorate Fabian’s impressive career and celebrate his last season in the peloton, SCICON® has teamed up with Fabian’s mechanic Roger Theel, the driving force behind almost all of Fabian’s customized bikes, to design a SCICON® AeroComfort 2.0 TSA bike travel bag, carrying the famous Spartacus insignia.
Fabian Cancellara and Roger Theel share an obsession for detail, but that’s not all that connects these two personalities. Fabian and Roger, rider and mechanic, a complementary, interconnected, and interdependent team.
Watch the exclusive double interview and quiz with professional cyclist Fabian Cancellara and his all time mechanic Roger Theel. A story about great passion and friendship, spanning 15 years, 1,200 days of racing and 27 World Tours.
While many fans of Fabian get to know about his custom bikes at races, spiked with detail and story, most of them meticulously stored in his very own bike museum and some of them only ever ridden once, very few people know that there are matching bike bags that SCICON® has specially designed and hand made for Fabian over the last years, too. Each of the special edition bike bags, being exclusive to Fabian and only to be seen if you would bump into him on the way to the airport with his bike.
I travel with Scicon Bags because they make by trips safe. I’ve never had an issue, nothing broken and I can pack my bike last minute.
– Fabian Cancellara
For Fabian’s final season, Fabian has decided to make one style available to his fans and for the very first time a SCICON® AeroComfort 2.0 TSA bike travel bag with insignia by Fabian Cancellara will be available for purchase in a limited number.
The limited edition SCICON® AeroComfort 2.0 TSA bike bag, carries the ‘fleurs-de-lis’, a take on the lily on the coat of arms of Florence and symbol for Fabian the king, spearheaded by his seven team mates. The sum of the two rolling dices – one plus six – is seven. Seven is Fabian’s lucky number, following him throughout his entire career. Seven consecutive yellow jerseys, seven monument wins, seven seconds time distance, and many other events related to seven that brought success and at times, also misfortune. All symbols are embedded on a diamond pattern, a link to the cobbles and the cobbled classics, a race category Fabian is know to be an expert in winning Paris-Roubaix and Flanders three times each. Circled in by a Greek key design, symbolizing the twisting and turning path of Fabian’s career and all suits of cards, resembling cycling as a game with the chance to lose, but more importantly, a chance to win.
For the first time ever you can get your hands on your very own special edition AeroComfort 2.0 TSA bike travel bag in Fabian Cancellara design. The series is limited to a run of 25 bags only, available through sciconbags.com.
