Why ride with Tailfin

I have tried some other brands and at the end of the day when you are travelling or going on an adventure with your bike, you want to be the most efficient, light and aerodynamic as possible.

I believe Tailfin is working very hard to achieve all of this, making the adventure cyclist’s life easier 🙂

Noteable Achievements

To live surrounded by bikes and being able to make cycling my job, my lifestyle and my hobby. This is my most notable achievement 🙂 Also graduating in Sports Science and completing a Masters degree in Cycling Performance and Racing.

Music playlist of choice
YES!!! I love it, keeps me motivated. But sometimes if I’m in the middle of nowhere, I like to be aware of the sounds of the nature, that gives me strength too:) I’m in love now on a version of Neil Young – Don’t Let it Bring You Down played By Mt Joy
What do you carry with you on every trip?
Swiss army knife! you always need it.
One luxury item you take on a trip
Aeropress coffee, for sure!
Favourite country to ride in?
Most of my riding has been in Spain (where I live) and in France, mainly because it’s so varied and the weather is always good. I’ve also ridden in the Indian Himalayas which was incredible beautiful but really hard due to poor road conditions.
If you could only ride one route, what would it be?
The Annapurna Circuit
