Why We Race

Racing is thick in the DNA of cycling, from friends sprinting for a local town sign on a social ride, to the pro peloton, it’s an ingrained part of life on two wheels. There’s an intrinsic satisfaction to be gained from racing, and yet there are so many benefits to be had in not racing too – especially when it comes to long-distance rides on the world’s finest roads and trails. So why is it that self-inflicted discomfort, un-championed achievements, and not taking the time to enjoy the view, can be so appealing? Read more.

Considered Design

Ultra-endurance riders spend long hours in the saddle out on the open roads – not just in race scenarios, but in the many hours of training rides that precede these events too. A less is more design means being lighter, and going faster.

Fit for purpose

For the Apidura Racing Series, having purpose means providing uncomplicated, accessible storage spaces for ultra-distance cyclists.

Sourcing food, finding a place to sleep, staying safe, and making forward progress. That’s life – and it’s liberating. Read more.
