33 years-old and a strong athlete on long distance trips, Romain is coming to the Sun Trip 2018 to push the limits and hunt the win.
He has always worked in the cycling field, dedicating two years of his career to a French electric bicycles manufacturer, O2Feel, his official partner for this adventure!
His participation in the Sun Trip as official Team therefore fits perfectly into his life plan.
Founded 7 years ago by two engineer friends with strong ecological convictions, O2Feel has established itself over the years as a strong player in the field of electric bikes.
Surrounding themselves with a team of professionals with a passion for cycling, Northern French company 02Feel is today able to offer a wide range of e-bikes and pedelecs ranging from city bikes to mountain bikes and a whole range of folding bicycles.
His Solar Bike
We decided to face this challenge with our Karma E-Bike.
Our advantages will be to be with a light & sturdy bike that will adapt perfectly to the different roads and tracks that we will travel on.
The technicians and engineers have made some changes to the equipment and accessories in order to adapt to my travel habits, while keeping the main strengths of the bike, that is to say its Shimano E8000 mid-drive engine (new MTB engine 2018 collection), very light and energy efficient, as well as the Shimano 504 Wh battery, semi-integrated into the frame.
We also benefit from the Suntravel trailer and their experience on this event.
A Few Words From The Adventurer…
Personally, it is with great pride that I present myself on the starting line of the Suntrip as ambassador of my company and our bikes.
A pride in my management who believes in my capacity to bring our bike to the finish line and who has put the means in place to make this project as an Official Team.
Also proud of my fellow technicians in the workshop who have invested in all aspects to optimize my comfort and my needs without neglecting the performance, turning it into a hybrid MTB Trekking Aero.
I was given all the cards in hand to make this project a reality in the best conditions and I’ll be the best actor on this project!
