Favorite SRAM® product and why: SRAM R2C Aero shifters and their return to center properties are my favourite SRAM innovation and product.
Favorite Zipp® product and why: My favourite Zipp product is the 808 Firecrest® rear /404 Firecrest front combo. This set felt awesome in Hawaii and was a supreme addition to my bike leg at the World Championships in 2011. I love the research that goes into the Zipp products and that gives me a lot of added confidence when I’m racing, and you can’t put a price on that.
Do you train with a SRAM-Quarq® power meter? I will once I get my hands on one this year.
