Rebecca Leaper


"When I race I typically ride a combination of tech, open climbs and descents. With Sixth Element Wheels I instantly felt the weight difference... acceleration was just easier and faster. There was a huge improvement in the handling of the bike too!... Very nippy in the really technical stuff"
