“As a professional cyclist for 6 years, training with a power meter has become vitally important to how well I can do my job. The days of old where one could simply go out and ride your bicycle according to heart rate are gone as the sport has become ever more specific, scientific and quantifiable. I am so glad to have Power2max as Team Imbuko{type}DEVs power meter partners for the 2022 season. Having a power meter whose metrics I can trust to be reliable day in and day out will be of huge help as I chase those marginal gains which will make all the difference come race day as I chase my career 50th win, I look forward to putting Power2max on the top step of the podium this year.” – Stuart Marais, Professional MTB Cyclist for Team Imbuko {Type} DEV

This partnership with Team Imbuko {Type} DEV offers the opportunity to help propel the team into South African MTB history books, through optimisation in precise & consistently accurate data.

With overall top-10 placements at the 2021 Cape Epic, Team Imbuko {Type} DEV will be looking to build on an impressive past year of racing and aim for new heights in the 2022 season, with power2max backing them every step of the way.
