Specialized have announced the release of a spectacular frame in recognition of our squad’s outstanding season.
Sixty-six victories. Fourteen days in yellow. Eight Grand Tour stages. Two Monuments. Number 1 ranked UCI team. 2019 has not just been an incredible year for the 25 riders of Deceuninck – Quick-Step, it’s one of the most incredible seasons any team has had in the history of the sport.
To honour the team’s magical year and our 11-year partnership, Specialized are making a limited-edition Deceuninck – Quick-Step Tarmac Disc frameset that celebrates every win and every rider. Based on the team’s 2019 colorway, only 200 of these individually numbered framesets will ever be made, and each will be an instant classic.
Frameset No. 1 was presented to the team at Il Lombardia and will hang in Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s Belgian Service Course, a fitting reminder of the team’s achievements. The riders were stoked to receive the frame and find their names and victories called out in the graphics. The Tarmac Disc, the most complete race bike in the world, is the perfect frameset to celebrate the team’s season long success, success around the globe.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate our riders and our victories with Specialized and this very special frame. The riders truly enjoyed finding their names and wins incorporated into the bike’s design. We’ve been partners with Specialized for 11 years and we all work tirelessly to achieve this success, so this bike will hang in a place of honour at our Service Course in Belgium as a reminder of all we have achieved together and all we can achieve in the future”, said Patrick Lefevere, Deceuninck – Quick-Step Cycling Team CEO.
Only 199 Deceuninck – Quick-Step LTD Tarmac Disc framesets are available to riders globally for $5,500 USD.
