Giordana

The Giordana brand has clothed cyclists for over 30 years.

It is a company born from the passion of a team of people at the top of the sport. The Giordana brand is produced exclusively in Italy from beginning to end. Each stage of the process– from technical research to fabric selection, to styling and the finishing of every last detail, to cutting and packaging– comes to life in the new modern factory of Bonferraro di Sorgà (VR).

Giordana is genuine “Made in Italy” apparel. It is extremely proud of this characteristic, which today is absolutly unique. Every year Giordana is growing its market share: it has dressed thousands of teams of professionals and amatures around the world. Giordana produces over one million three hundred thousand items per year and shows a positive continuing trend. It is this ability to partner with so many diverse teams that drives the brand’s success. At its core, it is a company that knows how to gather, interpret and anticipate the needs of all cyclists.

Giordana is very proud to be a partner of the Node4 Giordana Racing Team for 2012. Having supported the British based outfit for a number of years Giordana will be providing kit for both the men’s and women’s team from the FR_C Body Clone range, the very best cycle clothing available.

Subaru

The Node4 professional cycling team is an official partner of Subaru UK, a leading manufacturer of All-Wheel Drive vehicles.  The Japanese carmaker is continuing its support for 2013 by providing the team with three Legacy Diesel SE NavPlus models and two Outback Diesel SE models, all of which will provide surefooted all-terrain transport, whatever the weather.

Node4’s cyclists will make full use of each of the Subaru’s effortless load-lugging capabilities and fuel efficiency throughout the 2013 series, putting Subaru’s trademark permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive – which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary – to good use.

Many of Subaru’s customers take a keen interest in outdoor activities such as cycling so the shared support with the Node4 Giordana professional cycling team is a perfect match. Both the Subaru Legacy and Outback proved invaluable to the team in the 2012 season so with Subaru’s continued support in 2013 the Node4 team are confident they have the best vehicles to perform to the best of their ability.

Pinarello

Despite the increasing demands of a frenetic market we never cut corners when it comes to pure research…

Research into new materials, new geometric solutions, new systems, to use in our production process.

For us, research and new concepts are never just “marketing pre-tests”, but rather, true progress and innovation. This is why we are our own first testers. Everyday, we test tubes, frames, forks and components on the roads that surround us, testimonial sites of legendary feats, from Montello to the Dolomites.

And if they withstand our relentless tests, they are then passed onto champions and then onto you.

This is the only way we can be sure that we are offering you the very best.

Schwalbe

“Schwalbe is the leading brand for bicycle tyres in the UK & Europe and is committed to being the best partner possible for Node4-Giordana. The Schwalbe Company is well known for its touring and mountain bike tyres, but its greatest ambition is to become the best brand for road racing tyres.

The team rides the excellent Ultremo HT (handmade tubular), which is produced solely in Schwalbe´s own tubular factory. The combination of traditional tubular manufacturing with the most modern compounding leads to a really outstanding product: very fast and reliable with excellent grip. It’s the best advantage possible for the team on rain-soaked roads and circuits on the continent and at home.

Schwalbe is extremely proud to be tyre partner for Node4-Giordana this coming season”
