Borealis has a single mission -- to build the best-quality, highest-technology fat bike in the world. Their success is our benefit, and we take these bikes to the limit
in the dirt, through the jungle,
over volcanos and across
rivers and beachs. Oh, we
sometimes ride them in the
We ride the Yampa for XC events -- its all-carbon design, rigid fork and race geometry are perfect for 100 miles in the saddle...or more. Add Borealis' Carbondale rims, and this race pony comes in at 21 lbs / 9.5 kgs on the scales. Fat never felt so skinny.
The Manifesto -- Person first. Athlete second. No compromises. No excuses. A podium finish means nothing if the path to the top is dirty. What lasts long after the medals and the palmares is who that athlete is as an individual, what do they stand for and what do they give back.
In every aspect of sponsorship and support, Team CoreCo is dedicated to developing the whole person as a foundation cornerstone for their family, for their team and for their community, not simply developing the best rider or best athlete.
Community is the core of our program. Our team is not just the racers on the course, but is rather the collection of family, friends and supporters who stand behind each competitor and who form the Team CoreCo community. It is through that connected network that we gain the strength, confidence and discipline to train and compete.
So, it is our duty and our pleasure to give back.
Our foundation is based on the athletes living on the Nicoya penninsula in Costa Rica. These athletes are each produtive members of their community who demonstrate personal responsibility and collective leadership in everything they do. Our athletes are examplary individuals who strive to be their best, on and off the race course.
The starting point for Team CoreCo was the launch of Team CoreCo Cycling which was begun by six "founding" team members to ride the 2011 La Ruta de los Conquistadores in Costa Rica and to raise money and awareness for the New York Chapter of the Alzheimer's Foundation (alz.org) and for CIRENAS, a 501(c)3 environmental education program based on the Nicoya peninsula in Costa Rica.
In 2012, Team CoreCo also added ACOCI (Asociación Cobaneña Ciclismo) which is a grassroots cycling program that is focused on developing and motivating youth and community cycling through grassroots engagement programs in and around the town of Cobano located on the Nicoya peninsula in Costa Rica.
