Starting the new season, professional German triathlete Laura Philipp (29) will be joining the Swiss Side Pro Team. The current German Champion and Vice-European Champion in middle distance triathlon will be racing on Swiss Side wheels and will gain access to Swiss Side’s unmatched aero know-how.

Laura Philipp is looking forward to the new partnership with the Swiss aero experts: ”I am really happy do be riding on Swiss Side wheels and to be able to take advantage of Swiss Side’s unique know-how in aerodynamics. The collaboration with Swiss Side will be highly valuable to exploit my full potential on the bike and to achieve even faster bike splits in the future.“ 

Swiss Side is eager to start working with the charismatic triathlete. ”We are looking forward to the collaboration with another professional triathlete from Germany’s highly respected Erdinger Alkoholfrei Team. Laura is a great addition to our team and we are convinced that we can help her achieve many more top finishes through our aerodynamic analysis including wind tunnel optimization, and of course with our HADRON Ultimate aero wheels,” says Jean-Paul Ballard, Swiss Side CEO and Technical Director.

The Swiss Side team will use their entire aero know-how from Formula 1 racing, to improve Laura Philipp’s complete bike and rider setup. This will directly result in faster bike times through aerodynamic drag reduction.

Laura’s first race of the season will be the 70.3 Ironman Dubai on January 27th, 2017. Look out for Laura on Swiss Side HADRON Ultimate aero wheels!
