ONE OF A KIND
The colours of Team Bahrain Victorious are some of the most striking in today’s peloton, but when an individual rider achieves an outstanding result, our designers like to dig deep and create an incredible and equally eye-catching one-off design to honour the victory, whether it’s in a particular race or part of an 'above and beyond' contribution to the team. Here are a few of these unique bikes, celebrating races and events where our riders achieved results of the very highest levels.
SCULTURA V – NATIONAL CHAMPION OF JAPAN
To honour another great rider and his huge commitment to the team, Heinrich Haussler also received his own 'one-off' REACTO, decorated in the national colours of Australia and wearing his nickname 'Heino'. With the 2022 World Road Championships taking place in Wollongong, in his home country Australia, Heinrich Haussler was able to line up at this start line with this beautiful creation. As one of the real all-rounders of the team, Heinrich is known for his tireless efforts to support his teammates and his ability to bring the team together, regardless of how challenging the task ahead might be. As a real team player and role model for the younger members of the team, he is a deserving recipient of such a special bike.
REACTO IV – THE 'EDELHELFER'
Sometimes, it is not about focusing on one incredible win but honouring an outstanding contribution and the tireless efforts of a rider to put his teammates into the perfect position for the sprint. This is the reason that made us create a very special bike for a very special rider. After more than 20 years in the professional peloton, the most successful 'Edelhelfer' or 'Top end domestique' Marcel Sieberg brought his racing career to an end, finishing his racing years in the colours of Team Bahrain Victorious. As an appreciation of his impressive career with unrivalled effort and undisputed commitment, creating this special bike was the least we could do. Key areas of the bike, such as the underside of the downtube, the front part of the top tube and the area behind the headtube, carry vital moments from Marcel’s career as well as his 'Edelhelfer' inscription, serving as a lasting reminder of what he achieved for Team Bahrain Victorious and previous teams he has raced for.
REACTO IV – EUROPEAN CHAMPION
REACTO IV – NATIONAL CHAMPION OF ITALY
THE CENTENNIAL EDITION
SCULTURA IV – 100TH EDITION OF THE GIRO D’ITALIA
One of the first and most widely documented 'one of a kind' paint jobs we have created was former BAHRAIN MERIDA’s team captain Vincenzo Nibali’s black and gold SCULTURA. The bike was created to be the two times champion’s bike for the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia in 2017. Taking inspiration from the famous spiral-shaped trophy of the Giro, the super light carbon frame featured a black and golden paint job that mirrored the shape of the event’s trophy and used real gold leaf rather than paint to create this unique look. As an additional special feature, every winner of the Giro d’Italia was mentioned by name on the gold spiral of the bike; most importantly, the rider of this 'one of a kind' SCULTURA used during the centennial edition of this famous Italian road race.
