Gaerne's G.STL and the G.Stilo before it have a unique lower Boa dial placement, farther down the midfoot than any other shoe.

Looks like the Supacaz Kazze shoe to me.

Yeah it doesn’t make sense in Italian

Also, I can’t get the picture of a little happy 4 year old girl all dressed up like a princess on her way to a children’s party, out of my brain

They also seem to be gone out of most OEM bikes.

There's a topic somewhere talking about it.
Supposed to drop helmets and shoes and focus on a tighter range of wheels with a new investor group to back up an attempt to survive.

Tim Wellens was on S Works shoes in 2020 and I think Gaerne in 2019.
Now this picture was posted with what looks like some chromed......Gaerne?

Mavic's financial issues are well publicized. The new owners are refocussing on their core products and dropping other money-losing ventures.

For sure. This will be new. Since when does Shimano support Campy or SRAM (XDR) cassette options?

They don't have to, but it sure was easier with 11-speed, wasn't it?

Anyway, NS has to have compatible equipment, but not every possible combination for every bike in the peloton (I think Trek and Movistar are S.O.L. when it comes to their 12-speed offerings). If NS doesnt have the necessary pedals, wheels, etc., then they can substitute a bike, instead (probably won't be a problem for front wheels, but rear wheels are a bigger issue). This usually doesn't apply to team leaders, because they'll have someone their approximate size they can bum a bike off of, or the team car will be close by and they can just get a bike from there, but for domestiques or guys who won't factor into the race, they can borrow anything from a wheel to a bike from NS (they'll usually have the most common components - wheels - available for swaps, but for bigger issues, you just pull a bike and ride along until you can get one from your team car).

If I remember correctly, Shimano NS used to use some nice Ti frames with their latest groupsets. It's a nice advertisement for Shimano (or whoever does NS).

Caleb Ewan still sticking to 11spd Campag rather than 12spd again for this season, but has now moved to an integrated bar/stem rather than his previous Deda Superzero:

The team presented the special painted Tim Wellens bike.
And it's the same as his shoes.
