The Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France, the Olympics, World Championships, and grueling Classics. Despite its success, we haven’t been resting on our laurels: to stand still means being overtaken – to remain at the top, the best must evolve. To bring you the new Teammachine, we pushed the boundaries of advanced cycling technology. Its creation has been all-encompassing. First we gathered feedback from our professional riders – no one knows the Teammachine better than they do. We also sought advice from partners outside of the industry to make sure we had access to the latest scientific research. We leveraged our decades of in-house carbon expertise, and explored the possibilities by applying our ground-breaking ACE Technology. The result is the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling: the world’s raciest balance of lightweight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximal integration and Swiss design. Let there be no doubts, we are ready to continue to dominate the peloton.
In ancient Greece, ‘Agon’ was the belief that anything can be achieved through effort, healthy rivalry and noble competition. An Agonist pits force against force; competitor against rival and athlete against nature, in fierce competition, to achieve an ultimate goal. For riders who charge up fast, epic climbs and over traverses – but also want to have serious fun on the long descent back to civilization – we created the Agonist. Harmonizing two opposing capabilities, like the agonist and antagonist muscle groups, to work toward one purpose. The Agonist demands as much of itself as you do, and together…you are unstoppable.

Op 15 juli 1969 begint Eddy Merckx –bezig aan zijn eerste Tour de France- met acht minuten voorsprong aan de etappe die het peloton van Luchon naar Mourenx zal brengen. 214,50 kilometer staan er op het programma met onderweg vier zware cols. Ondanks zijn riante voorsprong trekt Merckx op 75 kilometer van de finish solo in de aanval om met bijna acht minuten voorsprong op de tweede te finishen. De endurance racer van Eddy Merckx Cycles is vernoemd naar die heroïsche prestatie.
