Peaks winning bike


"You're never on the right bike!" - Paul Oldham

There are many opinions on the perfect bike for the “peaks”. The unique event covers every terrain, from tarmac roads and gravel paths, through to unrideable rock gardens. The race is a perfect testing ground for many of the new products we’re launching over the next few months. The bike features our Carbon Seatpost, wide range 10-40t cassette and CX cranks.

This year winner and Hope Factory rider Paul Oldham shows us his race winning bike.
