Atlas Composites receives contract from British Cycling

U.K.-based Atlas Composites has won a contract of an unspecified amount to provide composites design and manufacturing services to British Cycling as the U.K. prepares to host the 2012 Olympic Games.

Atlas Composites (Ilkeston, Derbyshire, U.K.) reports that it has won a contract of an unspecified amount to provide composites design and manufacturing services to British Cycling as the U.K. prepares to host the 2012 Olympic Games.

Commenting after his recent site visit to Atlas Composites, Individual Pursuit Gold Medalist Chris Boardman MBE, now a research and development consultant at British Cycling, says, “Saving weight in a moveable object reduces the power to move it. A combination of world-class frame design, excellent materials and specific lightweight components gives you a bike which feels natural to ride, is comfortable and provides the perfect platform to go on and achieve medal success.”

Atlas Composites managing director Shaun Moloney, says, “Atlas Composites have garnered a reputation as a quality U.K. composites manufacturer across a diverse range of industry sectors. We’re delighted to be manufacturing composite components for British Cycling during such an historic period for the sport and the country as a whole.”
