Ambassador

Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh.  If you’ve ever rented or owned race wheels, you know the sound I’m describing.  These wheels did not disappoint in the joy and satisfaction from hearing that sound.

The Eagle has landed

What is a brand ambassador?  A brand ambassador represents a company and a product, sharing their experience with the product with their network. Find out more about Eagle bicycles here.

I test rode these wheels last Sunday up in Flagstaff, AZ, where the roads were clear and the weather was “perfect.”  My number one happy moment about these wheels was how they handled over the cattle guard.  Cattle guards usually my least favorite part about ride. I cringe at the feeling of riding over them, but these wheels proved to be a smooth ride. 

You can’t beat the view from Mormon Lake overlook.
 

These wheels climbed the hills well and I rode comfortably down hill at fast speeds. I didn’t feel unwaivered like I usually do with my other wheels. So you may have noticed I emphasized “perfect” weather. Well for any Phoenician summer valley dweller, an escape to cooler weather and monsoon rains means perfect. With about 5 miles left to downtown Flagstaff it started to pour on me. I’m happy to report that I was still able to handle turns, hills and breaking well despite the rain that fell.

I love the wheels so far and the added speed I’ve gained from them! Looking forward to racing with them at Ironman Santa Rosa.
