“I am pretty hard on bikes, I am not really worried about weight I just want a bike that I can depend on and that shouldn’t break unless I do something really stupid. One area this is really key with is wheels the guys at HUNT Bike Wheels built me a protype set of wheels for my heavy riding style, which have now be developed into the Enduro Wide V2’s.

The seatpost angle has been a revolution on those longer days winch up those steep climbs keeping me feeling fresher when it comes to the stages." - Ollie Mckenna
