Renishaw has extended its partnership with the British Olympic cycling team ahead of the Paris summer games taking place in 2024.

The 3D printing company has been named an official supplier to the team, and will use additive manufacturing (AM) to create lightweight, complex parts for an upgraded track bike design, which aims to reduce drag and improve overall speeds.

“We're really excited to be working once again with the British Cycling team after the success in Tokyo,” said Ben Collins, senior applications engineer. “Creating a bike light enough for Olympic competition that also stayed within the Union Cycliste Internationale guidelines was a challenge, but it also gave us the chance to showcase how beneficial additive manufacturing can be across all industries.”
