ROTWILD are to equip DTM drivers with high-tech racing bikes.
High-tech racing bikes.
The drivers in the Mercedes-AMG DTM Team are suitably equipped to meet the challenges of the new 2015 season whether on four wheels or two. All eight Mercedes-AMG DTM works drivers were presented with new high-tech racing bikes manufactured by team partner ROTWILD at the DTM season opener in Hockenheim. Cycling is an important part of driver training and contributes to physical and mental fitness. The R.S2 Team AMG ROTWILD racing bike is built to the highest standards and has a wide range of applications. A full carbon frame ensures lightweight construction and damping throughout, while the application of powerful competition-driven technology ensures maximum forward motion and comfort, whether for training purposes, in competition or for endurance riding.
Expertise and experience.
ADP Engineering GmbH, based in Dieburg, founded the ROTWILD cycle brand in 1996 after working on various developments within the bicycle industry. Series production began in 1996 and ROTWILD immediately won the prestigious Downhill World Cup and followed that by winning several long-distance and cross-country world titles and Olympic gold medals, establishing ROTWILD as a high-end mountain bike brand. Together with R.S2 Team AMG ROTWILD, the German bicycle manufacturer is now bringing its expertise and experience to the open road. A period of intensive cooperation between the two high-performance brands, Mercedes-AMG and ROTWILD, began in 2013 with the R.X45 AMG full suspension carbon-fibre bike whose look and appearance is redolent of the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG Edition 1.
The ROTWILD team of pro mountain bike riders has been sponsored by AMG since 2014. The joint launch of the ROTWILD GT S inspired by AMG took place this year.
Ulrich Fritz, Head of Mercedes DTM: “Cycling is an integral part of fitness training for our drivers. They are now perfectly equipped to stay fit on two wheels during the season, riding their new ROTWILD racing bikes. The close cooperation that has existed in the past between Mercedes-AMG and ROTWILD now forms the perfect basis for a continuation of that partnership in the DTM as well.”
