KTM bikes ridden by Delko Marseille team this season

KTM Bicycles makes their modern day debut into the top levels of the pro peloton with the new Delko Marseille Provence KTM team. The French registered team was running the standard KTM Revelator road bikes, which are a little more race oriented than the Revelator Prime version that debuted last summer as a more endurance oriented version with disc and rim brake options.

Delko is a French auto parts retailer, and Marseille Provence promotes tourism to the Marseille region.

Quarq is listed as a team sponsor, but the bikes we saw didn’t have power meters installed. Time pedals were in use, a somewhat rare sight in a sea of Dura-Ace and Look Keo pedals.

Corima S+ carbon tubulars were glued to Schwalbe One tires. The Corima brake pads don’t have the good looks of SwissStop’s, but they get the job done.

Sigma is another brand you don’t see as often in the pro peloton, but their Rox 10.0 GPS cycling computers were being used to track mileage.
