We were really excited to receive our copy of 220 Triathlon magazine this week and discover our 88mm wheelset had been named “Best on Test” with a score of 92% in the deep section race wheel group test against some very tough competition.
Tester Nick described them as “Coming in at just under £1100, the Stradas are a helluva lot of wheel – a true aero race day wheel with a genuine personal touch” and he went to conclude they were “great value with a personal touch”.
It is a great award to receive and reminds us that the components we are sourcing, importing, testing, racing and subsequently hand building for clients are a great combination of performance and value for money and when delivered with good personal service in an age of mega corporations and internet ordering we can compete with well established brands in the UK and Europe by offering something a bit different.
We have all been grinning since hearing the news and like any good award ceremony I want to thank my Strada colleagues Darren for his amazing wheel building skills and bike shop experience and Tom for testing, technical support and feedback.
We will be proud to see our wheels on start lines, out on sportives and in triathlon transition zones up and down the UK and Europe this coming season.
