2018 is the fourth season for the New Zealander at LottoNL-Jumbo, and will see Bennett ride the same Bianchi Oltre XR4 that contributed to last year’s success.
In the iconic Bianchi celeste green, Bennett’s frameset is paired with a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 groupset and wheels, FSA cockpit and Pioneer power meter.
Seemingly every square inch of the celeste frameset is adorned with the team’s sponsors, and the contrasting yellow logos of LottoNL-Jumbo, the Pioneer unit, plus tan walled tyres, create an eye-catching machine in the WorldTour peloton.
Complementing the Pioneer power meter is a Pioneer Cyclocomputer SGX-CA500 headunit.

LottoNL-Jumbo are one of the six WorldTour teams equipped with Vittoria Corsa tubular tyres, and all opt for a tan walled finish.
The cockpit is provided by FSA and comprises of an Extra Light Compact Carbon handlebar and a SL-K stem.
LottoNL-Jumbo raced on Selle San Marco saddles during the 2017 season but this year are equipped with the 2018 range of saddles from Fizik, each with a flash of celeste.
