Shimano and PRO components help Froome claim second Tour victory

After three exciting weeks, 21 stages and 3,360km (2,088mi) through the Netherlands, Belgium and France, Chris Froome brought the yellow jersey to Paris to win ‘Le Tour’ for the second time.

Froome claimed his victory on his SHIMANO and PRO equipped bike, riding the majority of stages with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 components (including the handlebar satellite switch), C24, C35 or C50 deep section wheels and a PRO stem, handlebar and seatpost combination.

In time trial stages Froome opted for a PRO disc rear wheel and three-spoke front wheel.

Team Sky dominated the Tour de France 2015 from start to finish, winning the yellow jersey after Stage 3 and, after losing it briefly, reclaiming it again on Stage 7.

Froome demonstrated his superiority with victory on the mountainous Stage 10 from Tarbes to La Pierre Saint-Martin. His controlled performance in the Alps, where he also took the Mountains Classification jersey on Stage 20, saw him seal the win.

SHIMANO and PRO are proud partners to Team Sky and congratulate Chris Froome and Team Sky on winning the Tour de France.

  • Components: Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 9070
  • Wheels: Shimano Dura-Ace C24, C35 & C50
