Matt Bottrill - Bike Check

Words by Matt Bottrill

I’ve been an ENVE test pilot since the collaboration of Simon Smart and ENVE started working together. What I love about the brand is how they’re always trying to advanced the product not just through aerodynamics but also how the wheel handles and feels. I’ve used the wheels to help me achieve over 30 national championships. Since making the transition into triathlon I’ve managed to achieve the fastest bike split in every race. My personal choice is the SES 7.8 which is the most aerodynamic and by far the best handing wheel I’ve ridden.
