    • Sylvain Richou (Expert)
    • Jordi Vedere (National)
    • Clément Méot (R1)
    • As well as three up-and-coming young riders: Maxime Lleba, Tony Visentin et Jeremy Descloux.

- These Co-factory contracts are open to all trials riders, and will be the same contract for all categories.

- The best rider overall from each category (R2, R1, National & Expert) of the FFC 2010 French Cup (four riders) will receive Atomz’s top-of-the-range bike (20” or 26”) for the 2011 season.

- The Co-Factory contracts entitle you to a significant discount on the 20” or 26” bikes from the 2010 range, up to two bikes in a year and a 20% discount throughout the year on accessories.

    • For and ATOMZ QUARK II 26’’: €1290 Full bike + jersey + shorts.
    • For and ATOMZ QUARK II 20’’: €1290 Full bike + jersey + shorts.

- There will also be assistance on hand at all French Cup rounds to help you out.

The 2010 Atomz Quark range:

Christian has also sent us some of the first photos of the 2010 Atomz Quark range…... We were hoping for a bit more colour, but they have stuck with the sobriety that the brand is known for. The design of the Quark remains the pretty much the same, but has been improved in places and should be a bit more reliable than the Quark I: the frame has been improved, the fork, cranks, hubs and freewheels have been changed and the paint job is new – the bike is available in grey or white. Click below for more details or click on the photo to see it in its original resolution.
