It’s been a great week riding out there and we got some great videos coming, like a Gravel vs Road bike race between me and Si, so stay tuned for that!

Whilst Jon was at the UAE Tour last week, he got a heads-up from Giant about some new wheels that they’re currently testing with the CCC team. They didn’t give us any details, at all, but, they did allow us to film these shots as a bit of a teaser, both for us and you.  

Most of us I am sure have seen those little flaps under the saddles called ass savers? We even have our own GCN one available in shop/Well, they now have extra big Detour Ass Savers especially for gravel/adventure bikes. I like the look of these, they look like what the original set out to achieve a few years ago.

If you enjoyed this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends. 👍
