Why ride with Tailfin

It was the first thing I wanted when I decided to take this direction with my cycling (road racing to ultra/bikepacking). It perfectly combines my desire to explore on multi-day trips while still being lightweight and sleek on a racing bike. Deep down I am still a racer so there is always an eye on the aerodynamics/weight of a product I want as part of my setup. It’s actually provided even more uses now that I have been using it for a while, as my Tailfin setup has provided me with the perfect platform to produce on bike videos as part of my freelance video making. Bikepacking with camera equipment couldn’t really be done another way.

Noteable Achievements

New to the bike packing/gravel racing world so hopefully they are all to come in this area

One luxury item you take on a trip
I usually don’t bring enough stuff with me. But I would say excess batteries
Favourite country to ride in?
If you could only ride one route, what would it be?
