Since beginning our TEAM CENTURION VAUDE sponsorship in the 2011 racing season, these riders have become THE marathon team to beat in Europe. Not only was Markus Kaufmann able to take the 2012 and 2016 individual German Marathon Championship title, but the team itself has won the overall title in the legendary BIKE Transalp four times: 2013, 2014 and 2015 with Markus Kaufmann and Jochen Käß, and 2016 with Daniel Geismayr and Hermann Pernsteiner. Multiple victories at the VAUDE Trans Schwarzwald (2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016), a consistently dominant role in the Zillertal Bike Challenge and a spectacular 2nd place in the Cape Epic in 2016, the hardest MTB stage race in the world (Matthias Pfrommer and Nicola Rohrbach), all make the TEAM CENTURION VAUDE a perfect representative of our brand and of our own self-image: passion for design, perfection and quality.

Backfire Carbon Team.29 Edition GRAFIKERIA CENTURION RACING

Its “Race Carbon Fiber” frame tips the scales at just 920 g! The super light CENTURION Backfire Carbon Team.29 is the standard working tool of the GRAFIKERIA RACING TEAM. Headtube and bottom bracket area stiffness data are impressive with 85 Nm/° and 65 N/mm. Nevertheless, the rear end still offers an optimum level of comfort which saves important energy during racing.
