Video: Fort William World Cup Testing Tech & Gear Check with Finn Iles

May 30, 2019
by Finn Iles  

The team and I headed out to Fort William UCI DH World Cup early this year to test out a full 29er bike vs. the mullet 29er/650B. Check out some of the cool tech stuff that goes into the fine tuning of my race bike at each race!

Also, lots of you guys have been asking about my riding gear, so there's also a look at my DH riding kit from head to toe!


MENTIONS: @FinnIles / @redbullbike / @Specialized

 I hope they did some testing in the wet... looks like a wet race, the rest of the UK has had sunshine for the last 2 weeks, Fort Bill and further North... Rain rain rain rain, looks like it aint stopping for the weekend. Grass section up top will turn into a bog if they tape it in, lower woods before the drop too will get spicy.

 Cool inside look! Would be so interesting to have a go with this sort of data gathering tech and find out what simple changes actually do (vs how they feel).

 Fort Williams looks like flow track with a couple of mild rock gardens.
