Bicycle manufacturer, Canyon Bicycles, today unveiled a custom Canyon Aeroad CFR, designed for the Miami Blazers team. The eye-catching design is meant to serve as a visual representation of the vibrant culture of Miami, the team’s hometown.
The Miami Blazers is one of America’s most prominent criterium teams and known for their efforts to diversify the sport. Owned by Justin and Corey Williams of L39ion of Los Angeles and launched ahead of the 2022 season, the team roster includes riders from Cuba, Belize, Venezuela, Anguilla, Guyana, Barbados and the United States.
For a second year, the team will race aboard a Canyon Aeroad featuring a custom design to represent the city of Miami. These design elements include the city’s symbolic ‘wave’ design, various reflective elements that become illuminated when the bike is put in sunlight and an iridescent decal material that displays an array of color from various angles to mirror Miami’s diverse population and all the different characters of the team.
There are several numbers painted on the frame which represent the city’s population, zip code and square mileage.
Despite the team’s criterium racing prowess, the team alongside L39ion of Los Angeles and DNA Pro Cycling announced earlier this spring that they will not be partaking in the all-new National Cycling League race series, which will make its debut in Miami in April.
