EDCO USA has announced that it has acquired the Faster Cycling Performance Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Set to become the new headquarters for the business, including hosting warehousing, service capability and warranty, the facility has the world’s first low speed wind tunnel built specifically for cycling.
Nominated by the industry as “Best Pro Road Bike Shop in America” at Interbike in 2014, Faster has in its short history become the go to performance center for the United Healthcare Men’s and Women’s Pro Cycling Teams.
James Kramer, Faster’s founder, stated, “I am so proud of what Faster and our staff accomplished in a very short period of time, along with the contribution we have been able to make to cycling. Paul Lew and his EDCO USA team share the same passion that I have for the sport of cycling and Faster.” Lew stated, “James Kramer is a visionary who has enriched the sport of cycling, and he has helped cyclists perform at peak capacity.”
Newly recruited CEO Paul Lew of EDCO USA, will oversee the facility as part of his new role within EDCO Engineering, BV. Lew will be joined by Aaron Ross, wind tunnel engineer, and now general manager of both EDCO USA and Faster. Lew and Ross will be reviewing, revising and improving the wind tunnel hardware, software, and testing technology to establish Faster as a premium performance cycling facility.
The center, which also houses 2D and 3D motion capture bike fitting studios, will continue to offer many services including metabolic performance testing for VO2 max, sports massage, chiropractic therapy, physical therapy, professional nutritionists, bike rental, and coaching.
