The Sphère Bike team showed is the new range of BONZ products at the French Cup in Super Besse in July. It is a wide range of components that will equip the new 2011 Ozonys bikes and which is aimed at a wide audience, from riders looking for a quality product at a low price to the most demanding of competitors looking for the lowest weight and highest performance. There are three categories of products in the BONZ range: Expert, with high-quality pieces at very competitive prices; Prolight, with products aimed at competitors who want machined, light parts without breaking the bank; and Racing, for the most demanding and dedicated competitors, with machined, light parts with titanium bits across the board.
In short, it is a great range of parts, very much in line with today’s tastes and standards, with an irreproachable finish, both sober and classy.
