TORQ/VIS Mountain Bike Team

Louis Garneau announces sponsorship of the UCI-registered Australian TORQ/VIS Mountain Bike Team which is comprised of both Victoria’s top elite riders (TORQ/VIS Team) and a development team of upcoming riders (TORQ Team). The team’s riders include standouts: Dan McConnell, who represented Australia at the 2008 Olympic Games, and Tory Thomas, a national cross country, marathon, and 24 hour solo champion. “We’ve always stood behind teams that not only consist of the best riders but the best riders of the future. They are referred to as a development team, but for Garneau that translates into us being able to provide gear for aggressive riders that will work with us to develop our gear for all types of riders,” says International Marketing Director, Pierre Perron. For 2009 the team will be racing the Australian MTB National Series, National Championships and Oceania Continental Championships as well as the World Cup Championships to be held in Australia this year.

Diamond Helmet

Diamond Helmet

The Diamond represents our greatest achievement in helmets. At 285 grams and 40 vents, we have designed a helmet to outperform the competition. The patented Super MSB technology consists of a monocoque base in the shape of a ring and two internal bridges. This technology replaces the commonly used internal cages and provides less shattering on impact, more vents, smaller walls on the side, and less touching of the head. In other words, this helmet is the pinnacle of helmet safety and conformability.
