Wolf Tooth Components becomes official supplier to Jumbo-Visma squad
Wolf Tooth is proud to be named Official Supplier of Team Jumbo-Visma. This new sponsorship includes men’s and women’s teams in road and cyclocross for 2023. As Official Supplier of Team Jumbo-Visma, Wolf Tooth will be providing custom components for team bikes. Some of the biggest names in the sport race for Team Jumbo-Visma, including Wout van Aert, Marianne Vos, Jonas Vingegaard, Fem van Empel, Primož Roglič, and many other talented riders.
Team Jumbo-Visma first began racing with Wolf Tooth in the 2022/23 cyclocross season. Team Jumbo-Visma heard good things about Wolf Tooth and started riding with the GnarWolf chainguide. The men’s and women’s teams won several UCI World Cup races with Wolf Tooth onboard including the women’s World Championship. After successful product testing with positive results, Team Jumbo-Visma approached Wolf Tooth about a sponsorship for the 2023 season. One benefit of working with Wolf Tooth that was identified by Team Jumbo-Visma is the ability to quickly design and machine custom components. Wolf Tooth will support Team Jumbo-Visma for upcoming races including Paris-Roubaix, Giro d’Italia Donne, Le Tour de France, and the entire men’s and women’s road and CX calendars.
Wolf Tooth is a small company with precision engineering, innovative design, and local manufacturing at its core. All Wolf Tooth products are created to make bikes faster, lighter, and more versatile. Wolf Tooth began with an innovative chainring design in 2013 and has since expanded the product offering to include headsets, pedals, bar tape, bottle cages, multi-tools, grips, dropper posts, and other components, tools, and accessories. Products are made at the Wolf Tooth machine shop located near Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Wolf Tooth GnarWolf chainguide is a small component that Team-Jumbo Visma will be using for this season. It is designed to eliminate dropped chains when riding with a 1x drivetrain. Chainguides are vital in races where a dropped chain can mean the difference between winning and missing the podium – think of a chainguide as a 30g insurance policy to keep you in the race. They are common in cyclocross and mountain bike racing, while also growing in popularity with gravel and road racing. Wolf Tooth has chainguides with four different mounting types to cover a variety of bikes. Expect to see a GnarWolf with a custom design for team bikes soon.
Team Jumbo-Visma is coming off of an exceptional start to the road season with top performances at Strade Bianche, Paris-Nice, and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. If you watched Milan-San Remo, you saw a Team Jumbo-Visma 1x drivetrain steal headlines with a Wolf Tooth GnarWolf prototype on the third step of the podium. The racing continues with Flanders, La Flèche Wallonne, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and several other races in the coming weeks. Pay close attention to the team bikes to see Wolf Tooth in action.
