  • When Johan first called me I was on my way up Mont Ventoux (for the second time that day) following a group of 19 riders all set on ascending the giant from all three sides.

    Once back in UK we spoke again, Johan has been riding for two years and fancied a nice upgrade to his Trek Madone. The stock wheels aren’t bad although they are pretty heavy and uninspiring.

    We decided on the DT Swiss 240 hubs and HED Ardennes+ rims with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and he’s super happy with them!

    “Wheels are amazing. Bike feels different and new, plus I am going 10% faster.”
