Cycling pros in the shower: hansgrohe’s 2019 Tour de France campaign

Shower like a pro 

In the run-up to the 2019 Tour de France, hansgrohe is again featuring the riders of the German BORA-hansgrohe cycling team in a shower environment. The new campaign includes Peter Sagan, Daniel Oss, Lukas Pöstlberger, Marcus Burghardt, Maximilian Schachmann who will also be presenting PowderRain, hansgrohe’s new spray mode.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

The Tour de France is just around the corner and there’s one thing the cycling pros know for sure: the first to cross the finish line will also be the first who gets to take a hansgrohe PowderRain shower. Riders drink about one liter of water an hour during a race. That amounts to about 12 bottles of water for every six-hour stage of the 2019 Tour de France. Luckily, they can recuperate after each stage by enjoying a relaxing hansgrohe PowderRain shower with its restorative spray of microdroplets. As specialists in the world’s most effective form of refreshment, hansgrohe supports its athletes with a daily dose of energy, enabling the team’s riders to start off refreshed and in top form so that they can perform their best, while also giving them the opportunity to replenish their batteries and regain their strength after a strenuous race.

Professionals aren’t the Only Ones who Appreciate hansgrohe’s PowderRain

The riders push their limits every day and captivate audiences with the perseverance and vitality that goes into their highly demanding sport. Water is an essential element and provides a daily dose of energy; hansgrohe supports the team’s riders by helping them focus on the upcoming challenge and by providing them with a shower that gives them the kind of relaxation they need. Top athletes aren’t the only ones who appreciate a motivating and rewarding shower experience. According to a study*, nine out of ten consumers agree that PowderRain gives them "the best shower experience of all time." No wonder: soft microdroplets completely cover the body and moisten the skin like a soft and refreshing summer rain. But PowderRain is not only gentle, it is also highly effective thanks to hansgrohe’s innovative spray technology.
