Posted by Editor on 03/30/16

Cycling Canada welcomes Blade Carbon Wheels as a supplier of wheels for National Team road projects in 2016 and beyond. A Canadian company based in Barrie, Ontario, Blade manufactures and distributes a wide range of hand-built full carbon fibre and carbon alloy wheels for the road and track cycling markets.

Blade's 50mm carbon clincher wheels, which received UCI certification in late 2015, will be used by Canada's National Team program as well as other Cycling Canada road development projects.

"Support from Canadian companies in the cycling industry is crucial to the sustainability of Cycling Canada's national team programs," commented Cycling Canada High Performance Director Jacques Landry. "Thanks to the products these companies donate, our athletes and support staff benefit from having access to top-quality equipment and it frees up critical resources that can be better spent in other areas."

"Blade Carbon Wheels is excited about our new partnership with the Canadian Cycling Team," stated Rob Milligan, President of Blade Carbon Wheels. "As a Canadian company, we are proud of our athletes and look forward to working with them to reach their goals and wish all team members the best for the 2016 cycling season."

In addition to supplying wheels for use by the National Cycling Team, Blade has set up an online promotional offer that will raise funds for Cycling Canada. When purchasing a set of Blade wheels use promo code "Cycling Canada" and receive $50 off your purchase. Blade will then donate $100 to the national federation for investment in Canadian road cycling programs. Design your custom wheels at and help support our athletes.
