Why ride with Tailfin

To put it simply, it’s the best product I have ever used. It’s well designed and engineered to just work. No faffing about, just supreme engineering and design to create something which I truly believe is the best range of equipment on the market.

Tailfin Talks To… Chris Hall

Chris Hall is a London-based cyclist. His love for huge (and, some might say, slightly unhinged) challenges for charity – such as 107 for 107 – brought him to the attention of the cycling community both in London and via social media. From there, Chris moved to long-distance cycling rides and races, including National 24, the Silk Road Mountain Race, and an epic trip across Australia. We caught up with him to talk to him about his cycling adventures and post-lockdown plans.
