WorldTour team bikes 2022: The complete list

An updated look at what the pros will be using at the Tour de France along with the season's remaining races

Mmmm. New and shiny things. While pandemic-related delays have made getting hold of bikes tricky for many, plenty of teams are now equipped with the machines they’ll be riding for the coming season. However, this year there’s been a marked reduction in the chopping and changing of suppliers, with most teams seemingly keen to hold onto any sponsors they already have. This early in the season is also a slow time of year for new models, so most squads are currently making do with new paint jobs rather than redesigned bikes. Expect this to change as the weather and the racing hots up.

Below you’ll find all the latest 2022 season team bikes that have broken cover. Expect any stragglers to be updated as newer versions arrive on the scene.

Ineos Grenadiers

Pinarello Dogma F, Pinarello Bolide 

The 2022 season appears to be the year Ineos finally parts ways with its old-fashioned brakes. Is this because quicker wheel changes are now no longer considered a marginal gain? Could it be related to the fact Pinarello’s bikes are now a bit lighter? Who can say?

Either way, in both formats, Pinarello’s Dogma remains the world’s most winning bicycle. Unusually, rather than split its range, Pinarello employs the Dogma to cover both lightweight and aero duties. Updated last year in time for the Tour, this latest model supersedes the F12 and is dubbed simply the Dogma F. Tweaked rather than rebuilt from scratch, it’s lighter and stiffer than any previous Dogma, plus it’s now also wireless-only.

Still being offered with either rim or disc brakes, the fact that you can now build it almost to the UCI’s 6.8 kg weight limit in either format will likely leave Tadej Pogačar and Colnago as the peloton's last advocates of traditional callipers. You can read about the bike's launch here.

SD Worx

Specialized Tarmac, Specialized Roubaix, Specialized Shiv

Formerly known as Boels–Dolmans, it’s lucky the mighty SD Worx team has so many national and world champions in its ranks, if only because their jerseys water down the effect of that purple kit.

Weirdly, applied to the squad’s Specialized S-Works bicycles the unusual combo of red, black, and purple is significantly more appealing. With Specialized recently aeroifying its Tarmac and killing off the Venge, the SD Worx riders will spend the most time aboard this all-rounder, allowing them to save the more forgiving Roubaix for bumpier Classics.

With Demi Vollering winning what's likely to be the last ever La Course by Le Tour de France, this year the team will be back targeting the extended eight-day women's Tour.

Intermarché - Wanty - Gobert team bike

Cube Litening, Cube Aerium

How Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert’s kit manages to accommodate so many clashing logotypes and yet still look the business I don’t know.

Its bikes, produced by German firm Cube, also look very nice. A lot of this is down to the Newmen wheels. Pasted with perhaps the nicest of the almost twenty different fonts dotted across rider, bike, and kit, their spinning logos can’t help but make the squad’s riders look fast.

With Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert bringing Cube bikes with it when it levelled-up to WorldTour in 2021, this is only the second time its machines will have been seen at this level. With the brand’s Litening model likely to do most of the work, the Aerium will get held back for time trials.

Bora-Hansgrohe

Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7, Specialized S-Works Shiv

Already sponsoring the mighty SD Worx and Deceuninck-Quick Step teams, Bora-Hansgrohe represents Specialized’s cheeky side-bet.

Having already convinced riders the world over to max-out their credit card on a new extractor hood for their cooker and shower for their bathroom, the influence of Peter Sagan has probably helped shift a few bikes too.

However, the 2022 season sees the Slovak rider off to TotalEnergies. Taking his sponsor with him, they'll now be the fourth WorldTour team on Specialized bikes. Perhaps the quartet of teams should start a mini-league.

Lotto-Soudal 

Ridley Helium, Ridley Noah Fast, Ridley Dean TT

Repping gambling, household fixatives and proper bike racing. Belgian team Lotto-Soudal is the oldest cycling team in the world, and perhaps also the coolest. Looking to add more victories to the thousand or so it’s already snatched, this year both its men’s and women’s squads will continue to employ Ridley bicycles.

Almost as aggressive as their pilots, the Flanders-based bikemaker’s slender Helium model will do for the mountains or races where comfort is in high demand. Otherwise, the Noah Fast will come out when speed is of the essence.

Recently swapping from Campagnolo to Shimano, the team now also rolls on DT Swiss wheels.

Total Energies

Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7, Specialized S-Works Shiv

It’s all change at French team TotalEnergies. For one, its sponsor gains an an ‘s’ to become plural and assumedly suggest it’s now also into windfarms or something similar. More excitingly for cycling fans, it also gains an ‘s’ for Sagan.

Arriving with the multiple-time World Champion comes his perennial bike sponsor Specialized. Displacing Wilier, Specialized now sponsors so many teams I’m refusing to explain its range again every time one of them crops up. Basically, despite making a host of great racing bikes, its sponsored riders all use the Tarmac most of the time anyway.

With a nod to his Slovak heritage, and top bod status, Sagan gets his own custom blue and red version, while the rest of the team have to make do with matching red ones.

Team BikeExchange 

Giant TCR Advanced SL Disc, Giant Propel Advanced SL Disc, Giant Trinity Advanced Pro

Team BikeExchange continue to live up to its name with a third bicycle sponsor in as many years. So out goes Italian firm Bianchi, in comes Taiwanese behemoth Giant.

Giving both men’s and women’s squads a whole new set of toys to play with, the team has decided to paint each in either pink or blue, so no one gets confused as to whose is whose.

Regardless of colour, both sets of riders are likely to find themselves spending the majority of their time aboard the aerodynamic Propel, while climbers like Simon Yates will reach for the more slender TCR Advanced SL Disc when things get hilly.

Recently relaunched as a stand-alone brand, the team are also expected to be using Cadex’s hookless and tubeless wheels. .

Israel Start-Up Nation

Factor Ostro VAM, Factor Slick 

Despite what you might hear from fellow golfers on the links, Chris Froome's success was not actually entirely down to the Italian firm’s pricey bicycles.Now battling to return to the front of the pack, his weapon of choice is Factor's Ostro Vam, which has superseded both the O2 and the Vista as the brand's flagship bike. He has already set the cycling internet alight this season with his now infamous bike review where he questioned exactly how much benefit the bike's disc brakes really offered. On one hand, it was a tad negative for the Ostro, but at the same time the most publicity Factor bikes has ever had. So this is a partnership that is already paying dividends.

Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl

Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7, Specialized S-Works Shiv

Shop S-Works Tarmac

The Specialized S-Works Tarmac is now the brand’s default race bike. Seemingly sponsoring half the peloton, it’s also rapidly becoming the default bike, period.

However, of all the teams the Californian bike maker sponsors, its relationship with Quick-Step has been the most fruitful. Proving so again, 2022 will likewise see Alaphilippe’s bike done up in rainbow stripes.

Despite being a Classics-focused squad, Specialized’s cobble-gobbling Roubaix rarely seems to get a look in with the Wolfpack these days. However, the team has occasionally experimented with sending riders out on its consumer-focused Aethos for extra comfort on transition stages. So it’s possible that bike might again get thrown into the mix.

Otherwise, expect the Tarmac to cover everything that doesn’t require the TT bars found on the Shiv.

UAE Team ADQ

Colnago V3rs, Colnago K-One

Having snaffled up most of the defunct Alé BTC Ljubljana team’s riders, the new UAE Team ADQ won’t be entirely unfamiliar to cycling fans. However, bringing it in line with the similarly UAE-backed men’s team, its riders will take on the 2022 season aboard new bikes. Migrating from one Italian brand to another, its riders will switch from Cipollini to Colnago.

So far, we’ve only seen this lovely custom V3rs, which, if the men’s team is anything to go by, will be the rider's mainstay. Also likely employing the K-One for time trials, the team keeps everything matching with Campagnolo groupsets and wheels.

AG2R Citröen 

BMC Teammachine SLR01, BMC Timemachine 01

Shop BMC Teammachine SLR01

in 2021 French outfit AG2R Citröen Team switched from Eddy Merckx Cycles to Swiss maker BMC. This left the newly refocused team chasing the Classics aboard the brand’s latest Teammachine SLR01 while tackling any time-trials they might find themselves presented with on the Timemachine 01 (the time trial specific Timemachine that is, not to be confused with the Timemachine Road).

In an unusual twist, the sponsorship arrangement means they'll be riding Campagnolo groupsets, which is a pairing of brand and groupset we haven't seen since the days of Phonak.

Movistar Team

Canyon Ultimate, Canyon Aeroad, Canyon Speedmax

Shop Canyon

Movistar sticks with long-term sponsor Canyon. Teased by the men’s and women’s squads last year, the recently redesigned Aeroad road bike will be both outfits’ default choice.

Less aggressively slippery, the Ultimate might also get occasional use, while the Speedmax will serve for solo racing and team time trials.

Jumbo–Visma

Cervelo R5, Cervelo S5, Cervelo P5

While the radically shaped S5 is the most distinctive of Cervelo's bicycles, it was the more conventional-looking machine spotted beneath Primoz Roglic this April that got bike nerds twitching.

Eventually revealed as the new R5, it remains Cervelo's most classically styled bicycle. Now slicker and more versatile than the former self, it's also spawned a cyclocross-specific variant, the R5-CX - good news for multi-discipline stars Wout van Aert and and Marianne Vos.

Team DSM

Scott Addict RC, Scott Foil, Scott Plasma 

American bicycle behemoth Scott provides the machines to support the male and female DSM squads. With the pointy looking Foil for sprint races, the Addict RC will come out in the mountains leaving the brand’s Plasma for time-trials.

Cofidis Solutions Crédits


De Rosa Merak, SK Pininfarina, De Rosa TT-03

As I’m sure they’ll be thrilled to discover, it’s not escaped my notice how handsome the Cofidis lot are looking this year. From team kit to personal grooming, the whole shebang is a vast improvement on previous iterations.

Having swapped bikes a few times in recent years, this year they’ve also stuck with De Rosa, which is a good move because De Rosa bikes are also devilishly handsome.

With a pick of either the Merak or SK Pininfarina, I’d always imagined these were too boutique to be high-volume sellers. With retro-futurist looks, red paint, and Campagnolo Record disc groupsets, even if they do nothing but hang themselves out in the break they’ll at least be a pleasure to look at.

B&B Hotels p/b KTM

KTM Revelator Alto, KTM Revelator Lisse, KTM Solus

As known for motorbikes as pedal-powered machines, KTM supplies bikes to the French B&B Hotels p/b KTM team.

No doubt invited to the Tour de France to keep domestic fans supplied with additional riders to cheer; the team provides a home to Maxime Chevalier, Cyril Gautier and Franck Bonnamour. Based in Austria, KTM will be delivering its skinny Revelator Alto and more aerodynamic Revelator Lisse bikes for the team to choose between.

Built up with DT wheels and Shimano components, FSA supply the carbon fibre crankset and bars.

Canyon-Sram

Canyon Aeroad, Canyon Ultimate, Canyon Speedmax

Now having parted company with Rapha, we're keen to see if Canyon-Sram remains the best turned-out team in the peloton.

Home to established powerhouses Katarzyna Niewiadoma and Chloé Dygert, their direct-to-consumer Canyon bicycles provoke envy from amateur racers and hatred from bike shop owners in equal measure. Likely to take on most stages above the dangerously sharp looking Aeroad, the more rakish Ultimate CF will do for nipping off into the hills.

Time trials, of which the team has more than a few riders capable of winning, will get covered by the firm’s Speedmax. Replicating both the bikes and kit list of the similarly outfitted Movistar squad, Canyon-Sram has formerly had the edge when it comes to their livery.

UAE Team Emirates

Colnago V3rs, Colnago K-One

Now the winner of two back-to-back Tours, Tadej Pogačar is the latest rider to help Colnago add another win to its extensive collection. Coming after something of a drought for the Italian firm, Ernesto has certainly got his money’s worth.

Repeatedly switching between disc and rim brakes to tailor the weight of his bike depending on the stage, he’s one of the last great advocates for rim braking. Happy to supply him with either technology, Colnago provides him with the V3rs for road stages and the K-One time trials. On occasions, like during the decisive stage of the 2020 Tour de France, you might even see him using both in a single day.

Often switching to the disc version for training or muckier races, all UAE Team Emirates’ bikes come finished off with equally Italian Campagnolo wheels and Record EPS gruppos.

FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope

Lapierre Aircode, Lapierre Xelius, Lapierre Aerostorm

Before we get onto bikes, how cool would it be to be sponsored by a theme park? Even if that theme park had a weird educational bent and instead of rides was based around multimedia cinema shows, and if I remember correctly from my last visit in the 90s, included a soundtrack provided by the Pet Shop Boys?

Pretty cool huh? Not cool like Universal Studios Hollywood, but still good.

Anyway, continuing its dedication to all things French, the FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope team has paired with Dijon-based Lapierre to supply its bikes. While the Aircode would seem an obvious all-around choice, the team also regularly employs the more swoopy and forgiving Xelius. With the Aerostorm doing for time trials, all come decked-out with Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets and wheels.

Groupama - FDJ

Lapierre Aircode, Lapierre Xelius, Lapierre Aerostorm

Like its sister-squad, FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope, the Groupama - FDJ men race on French-designed Lapierre bikes. These now include an updated version of the Xelius.

Trialled at the Critérium du Dauphiné, this latest third version of the firm's lightweight platform retains the unusual chainstay configuration, but now also benefits from much cleaner hidden cable routing.

Also sporting a new carbon cockpit, tube shapes across the bike have also been tweaked to make it a little more aero. Arriving done up in matt black and hung about with PRO components and Shimano wheels, they're significantly more handsome than previous versions.

Trek-Segafredo 

Trek Émonda, Trek Madone (above), Trek Domane, Trek SpeedConcept

Shop Trek Madone

The clue is in the name. Caffeine and bicycle pedalling outfit Trek-Segafredo makes the unsurprising choice to stick with the eponymous Wisconsin-based brand. Listing three possible models alongside the time-trial-specific SpeedConcept, these are the slinky Émonda, versatile Madone, and cobble-capable Domane.

All likely to see rotation as the conditions demand, Lizzie Deignan and Elisa Longo Borghini will head up a very strong women’s roster while Giulio Ciccone and Dario Cataldo will aim to give the Tifosi something to cheer on the men's side. For our part, we have to admit to having a little more affinity for the colour of the women's team bikes, such as the women's Emonda below, than the men's.

Astana-Qazaqstan

Wilier Filante SLR, Wilier 0 SLR, Wilier Turbine TT

After many years out of the WorldTour, we were very happy to see Wilier return to the peloton last year as the bike of choice for Astana (now Astana-Qazaqstan).

Wilier's new Filante will certainly be the eye-catcher for 2022. With fully integrated cabling and a host of technical wonders, it represents a substantial update from the brand's stalwart racer the Cento10Pro.

Merida Reacto, Merida Scultura, Merida Warp TT

Shop Merida Reacto, Shop Merida Scultura 

Merida might have been bumped as title sponsor of the vaingloriously-named Bahrain squad a few seasons ago, but it continues to supply the bicycles.

Slipped out during the Tour's traditional prologue, the Critérium du Dauphiné, its latest Scultura got off to a good start in 2021 by helping propel Mark Padun to two consecutive wins in the mountains. Clearly taking a few cues from the firm's other more recently updated bikes, it's likely to be rolled out only for the highest peaks.

Leaving Merida's blade-like Reacto to deal with the flat and rolling stages, time-trial duties will be taken care of aboard the firm’s Warp TT.

Jonathan Vaughters and Charly Wegelius’s outfit sticks with Cannondale bikes, no doubt planning to commit further atrocities upon them using neon pink paint and randomly aligned skateboard stickers. Out of the American brand’s bikes, the SystemSix is the most aero, so will get the most use. The Supersix might come out occasionally on bumpy days, while the vicious-looking SuperSlice will aim to cut down the competition in any time-trials.
