Between November 29th and December 16th, France hosts the 13th edition of the European Women’s Handball Championship. On this occasion, Isilines by Transdev – the official operator of the Men’s French Handball Team in partnership with the French Handball Federation – use 21 Magelys coaches to transport the teams.
For the first time in its history, the European Women’s Handball Championship will be held in France, bringing together teams from sixteen nations.
For this historic event, Isilines by Transdev – the official operator of the Men’s French Handball Team in partnership with the French Handball Federation – is proud to support the teams with a fleet of 21 Magelys coaches during the European Women’s Handball Championship, within the five French cities chosen to host the competition (Montbéliard, Nancy, Nantes, Brest and Paris).
The Magelys coach, voted “International Coach of the Year 2016”, is the flagship of the IVECO BUS range. The entire vehicle has been designed and engineered to offer incomparable comfort and safety. Its elegant design and its overhead side panels provide a panoramic view of the exterior and excellent interior lighting. A large windscreen completes the package, for exceptional visibility and safety for both the driver and the passengers.
Its powerful IVECO Cursor 9 engine delivers 400 hp and uses the exclusive principle of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) – without use of EGR – which makes it possible to control pollutant emissions, for more sustainability.
Magelys also boasts extremely high levels of both active and passive safety. For example, its robust self-supporting structure is hardened in a cataphoretic coating to ensure long-lasting protection against corrosion. It is designed to pass the R66/02 rollover test, an international regulation which ensures passengers receive maximum protection if the vehicle overturns. It is also equipped with the latest technological innovations such as the LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System) and AEBS (Advanced Emergency Braking System) automatic braking.
By partnering with the European Women’s Handball Championship, IVECO BUS once again confirms its role as a reference partner for major sporting events on the national and international scales. Indeed, just as the Federation chose the Magelys, these French and international handball players have also made the choice to play in the French league, demonstrating our country’s strong international reputation.
Sylvain Blaise, IVECO Vice President in charge of IVECO BUS’ worldwide activities, concludes : “This 13th edition of European Women’s Handball Championship in our country is an historic event, and we are proud to have once again been chosen as a reference partner with our Magelys. Commitment, performance and team spirit : these are the values that unite us, and we are proud to bring together industrial and sporting excellence !”
