WE ARE GOING GRAVEL

Cycling is a way to discover new territories while getting in touch with nature and escaping from traffic jams. Gravel gives the chance to move away from comfort zones, to leave the tarmac behind, to explore, race, and journey across all terrain.

We are now blazing a trail in the gravel scene thanks to its partnerships with three of the major players who are the very essence of the discipline: the Australian Nathan Haas, the French Sofiane Sehili and the Italian group Enough Cycling Team.

With a 10-year career in professional road racing, Nathan Haas has found new inspiration in the UCI gravel racing series, a collection of one-day races across rough, rugged terrain. For the Australian rider, this means he’ll once again participate in highly competitive environments, leaning into his decade of top tier tarmac experience. Nathan understands the high-performance demands needed from his equipment, the result is why he’s chosen to use the Valegro, offering maximum ventilation with minimal weight.

 

For Sofiane Sehili gravel is a very different experience. An urban messenger turned ultra-distance gravel racer, Sofiane’s first taste of adventure was racing the 2014 edition of Great Divide, and has continued to go long ever since. Gravel for Sofiane is all about bikepacking, covering ultra long-distances and often multi-day unsupported affairs that can literally cross continents. For these epic rides Sofiane's choice of equipment includes the Protone, featuring a lightweight shell with heavy-duty ventilation, for comfort even on the longest of rides.

We are supporting teams as well, with the likes of the all-Italian Enough Cycling Team, including six men and women. For Enough Cycling, gravel riding is about having just one bike to do whatever comes to mind, from riding Gran Fondo to setting off on a bikepacking adventure. To meet these diverse requirements, the team has chosen the Wasabi, a helmet ideal for all terrains and all seasons, thanks to its central ventilation window that can be opened and closed with ease.
