Specialized is also the apparel partner for the Dutch-registered UCI Women’s WorldTeam.
SRAM continues as the component partner with the squad, and sibling company Zipp will continue to issue the team’s wheels and cockpit components. Tacx will provide trainers, water bottles, and bottle cages, and its parent company Garmin will supply GPS units and wearable devices.

Specialized also presented the UCI men’s World Tour Team Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl with updated bikes for the 2022 season on Tuesday, January 4.
