Published July 11, 2016

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (BRAIN) — EDCO USA has acquired the Faster cycling performance center, which includes a low-speed wind tunnel and bike fit studio.

The Faster facility in Scottsdale will become the U.S. headquarters for EDCO, with warehousing, service center and warranty center operations. The facility will be overseen by Paul Lew, who joined the Swiss-based component brand earlier this year as a partner

EDCO USA will continue to operate the Faster cycling center operations, which offers wind tunnel testing, motion-capture bike fitting, VO2 max testing, sports massage, chiropractic therapy, physical therapy, professional nutritionist services, bike rental, and coaching.

James Kramer, Faster's founder, said, "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 will be joined by Aaron Ross, a wind tunnel engineer and now general manager of both EDCO USA and Faster.
