The LowestRates Cycling Team is happy to announce that they will be riding aboard Opus Bikes for 2017. The team will ride the Opus Vivace 3.0 at races throughout the season, and the riders are looking forward to be working with an innovative Canadian brand.
The Opus Vivace 3.0 team bikes will be outfitted with Easton Cycling cockpits, providing the best contact points, ride quality and weight savings for the riders.
The LowestRates Cycling Team is excited to work directly with the marketing department at Opus to help further the brand.
“Opus is one of the four biggest [bicycle] brands in Canada. Not long ago, we decided we had to add more depth to our company. We are attempting to create a culture and a brand, and so we thought it was time to work directly with an elite racing team that has big ambitions, both on and off the bike.” Martin Rancourt – Marketing Coordinator at Opus/OGC
The team will be involved in furthering the cycling culture Opus is creating, including taking part in social rides with the Opus Rouleurs cycling club.
Opus Bikes are distributed by Outdoor Gear Canada (OGC). The LowestRates Cycling Team is excited to be partnered with OGC for the upcoming season, and is equally excited to be using some of its quality cycling brands including Opus, Bell Helmets, and Easton.
