The 24-year-old will be traveling to Tokyo later in the year to race in the women’s team pursuit, the road race, and the individual time trial.
Here’s a close-up look at the Canyon-SRAM rider’s national championship-winning Canyon Speedmax CFR time trial bike.
The Canyon Speedmax CFR TT Disc is Dygert’s team-issue bike, fitted with SRAM Red eTap AXS drivetrain, a Zipp 858 NSW front wheel, a Zipp Super 9 rear disc wheel, Schwalbe tires, a Fizik Donna saddle, and Wahoo pedals.
Dygert has her own aero extensions with remote shifters, not the stock Zipp extensions that come on the Speedmax CFR TT Disc.
The shape of the extensions is all about aerodynamics, with the width and the angle fine-tuned to Dygert’s position.
What the wind sees — minus the national TT champ herself, of course.
Dygert is not using oversized pulley wheels, opting for a factory spec on the SRAM Red rear derailleur.
Dygert can push a 54/41 chainring combination.
The Fizik Donna saddle is set fairly far back for a TT position.
A Schwalbe Pro One tire wraps the Zipp Super 9 disc.
Horizontal sections of the bike — like the seat tube and bottom bracket clusters — have been shaped to reduce drag.
The front brake caliper mount is fixed to an aerodynamically shaped attachment point on the left fork blade.
Wahoo Speedplay pedals offer some of the greatest range of float, which may be attractive for Dygert, who had surgery on her left leg as a result of a crash at the 2020 UCI world championships.
The dimpled surface on the underside of the pedal is much like the surface of a golf ball and has been tested to reduce aerodynamic drag. They are also some of the lightest pedals available.
