Preferred Discipline: In the sun, at 20 degrees Celsius, navigating mountainous off-road terrain, with the opportunity to take a refreshing swim in a river, lake, or ocean. Occasionally, I enjoy participating in races, embracing a bit of discomfort, and pushing my human limits. It allows me to experience the world in a unique way that I can’t find anywhere else in life.

Why ride with Tailfin

I chose to ride with Tailfin because their exceptional attitude, effective communication, and commitment to innovation truly stand out. Their products are not only reliable but also reflect a level of quality I admire. Collaborating with Tailfin was an obvious choice – I couldn’t think of a better brand that aligns with my values and cycling needs.
