Rebecca Leaper


"I tried the wheels on a loop, which has a combination of tech, open climbs and descents and 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. Obviously the weight saving paid real dividends as the 6 stages wore on...towards the win!"
