Elite continues with GFNY

June 1, 2023

Elite’s partnership with GFNY started with Gran Fondo New York 2012 and both parties renewed their commitment yet again

NEW YORK CITY, June 1, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Italy based Elite specializes in the research, development and production of smart trainers, sports bottles, and bottle cages. It’s the number one bike bottle supplier for professional cycling.

Our unwavering dedication to developing products that maximize performance and elevate user experience perfectly aligns with GFNY’s mission,” says Peter Lago of Elite. “We are excited to continue this incredible journey with GFNY, supporting them in delivering extraordinary and impactful cycling events that captivate riders worldwide.

At the GFNY World Championship NYC, riders expect the best – and get it: the Elite Fly, world’s lightest bike bottle that packs 700ml yet builds like a sleek 500ml bottle is given to all riders during registration and handed roadside during the race.

We have a tremendous respect for the work and passion at Elite,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “Partnering with Elite for GFNYs second edition eleven years ago was a personal dream come true. Even more so, having Elite as a partner on GFNY’s side through all these years ever since in a fast changing world, is a huge honor for us. Elite’s products are nothing short of spectacular – and the team is a pleasure to work with.”
