Unior Bike Tools is new technical partner of Team Jumbo-Visma
Zreče, Slovenia – Team Jumbo-Visma has made a new long-term partnership with the Slovenian hand tools and workshop equipment specialist. Unior has become a technical supplier to the Dutch team, home of Slovenian superstar Primož Roglič.
For over a century Unior has manufactured hand tools in Zreče in their own facilities and with control of the complete process from raw materials through to finished product. It is with this control they maintain the highest quality and the specialized bicycle workshop program is no different. Presently exported to more than 80 countries globally, Unior has a strong presence in the world of professional cycling, adding another leading name to its roster. Unior has become a technical partner of Jumbo-Visma, a team that has made one of the biggest leaps forward in recent years – special note must go to the efforts of Primož Roglič & Wout van Aert. Unior has equipped the team’s mechanics and workshops with tools, repair stands and workshop equipment and everything is marked with Made In Slovenia. Cooperation is important from a marketing standpoint, as well as for R&D.
World Tour mechanics are masters of their trade and provide extremely important feedback on new tools; often they will also provide ideas for new developments. But above all, they need reliable tools that will work in any given moment and in every situation – in the team workshop or in the middle of the chaos in the biggest races – Unior has more than checked all of the boxes. As a Slovenian company, Unior is proud to support the team of national hero Primož Roglič, world’s number one cyclist, which gives this new cooperation even more significance. "We're very happy to work with Unior’s tools. Our mechanics have to use the best possible tools to make sure our riders can perform at their best. We’re also very proud to welcome a Slovenian company in our family of team partners. We happen to know that they can perform on top level!" – Dirk Janssen, mechanic at Jumbo-Visma "At Unior Bike Tools, racing has always been our strong focus and passion, working with top teams and mechanics is important part our marketing and product development cycle. Adding Jumbo-Visma to our roster is an incredible achievement for Unior." – Tine Mahkovec, Head of bike tools department Unior d.d. This new partnership increases Unior’s presence in the professional peloton; the company is already an official technical partner to Deceuninck - Quick-Step, Ineos Grenadiers, Movistar Team & Trek-Segafredo, while the tools are used by at least five other World Tour teams. Slovenian made Unior tools are therefore used by mechanics of many of the best riders in the world and are indirectly connected with the victories in the biggest events in the sport. Unior also supports own factory mountain bike team Unior – Sinter and several other top teams in the mountain bike circuit.
