The World championships in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, are the pinnacle for many mountain bikers. This magnificent event was also of special importance to ABUS: we have been an official supplier for the 2018 Mountain Bike World Championships. In addition, we were sponsoring the current World and European Champion, Jolanda Neff, as well as other top cyclists and were passing our knowledge directly on to our sports teams.
The MTB World Championship took place from 05. - 09. September 2018 in Lenzerheide. More than 30,000 visitors were expected to attend the main Cross Country and Downhill races. More information here
All in all, there were 12 cyclists from ABUS-sponsored teams among the starters:

Former World Champion Jolanda Neff was already relying on ABUS at the 2017 World Championships. This year, Jolanda and other top athletes were again betting on our sports helmets. We provide our athletes with the best equipment and a sense of security as they cycle, when every detail is important in their battle to gain seconds. This is precisely the area in which our helmets excel, thanks to their light weight, good ventilation and high level of wearing comfort. The helmets used most at the World Championships are our Aventor model and the GameChanger as well as the AirBreaker.
It is very important to us to be personally close to the sport and our athletes. That is why we was on location with our own stand and were offering an exciting program in addition to the World Championships. This included an autograph session with the cycling professionals and a technology workshop.
