Giro’s been teasing a something new by delivering mystery boxes to the BMC team riders at the Tour de Suisse, promising less drag, lighter weight and better cooling.
The boxes were photo’d in the hands of riders with various tidbits facing forward – 16% faster, 13% lighter and 2% cooler. Judging by the size of the carton and the particular hints, including the #girosynthe hashtag, we’re guessing helmet (aero or TT). We gotta admit, aero shoes would be cool, too, but with a name like Synthe, a helmet seems more likely.
Cadel Evans and the rest of the BMC Racing crew aren’t the only ones getting the gift boxes…
Heinrich Haussler of Team IAM Cycling (above) and Marco Haller of Team Katusha (below) show off their boxes, too.
