Andy Potts 14th at Kona with K-Force WE TT Groupset
Another Ironman Kona World Championship has just finished. Not just for anyone. It has been a special edition for us, the occasion to see in action the K-Force WE TT Groupset, on a Ceepo Viper R tri bike of the American champion Andy Potts.
Andy finished the race in 14th position, an excellent result challenging the cheery on top of the triathlon world, with a great finish time in the bike split. No doubt that Andy has been able to gain an advantage in terms of weight and performance from the FSA groupset.
“Using electronic shifting is a game-changer for me in racing and even more so in training. You don’t realize how many shifts you make during a training ride until you pay attention. On one ride, I counted that I did over 568 shifts in an hour. That is a lot of shifts.” said Andy at the end of his 11th participation to Kona.
“I find that using WE electronic shifting changes how I ride a bike and makes it that much more enjoyable. In terms of the functionality of the WE system, I love the dual button designs and also how you can turn it on and off with the push of a button. The ergonomics of the buttons make the transition from mechanical to electronic seamless and everything about the system is intuitive. I could not see myself riding a TT bike without WE electronic on it.”
Developed with many pro riders and triathletes over the last years, the FSA K-Force WE groupset has brought unique technology to the road bike groupset market. Recent winner of a stage at La Vuelta with Angel Madrazo of BH-Burgos team, and Andy Pott’s achievement represents another verification of reliability for K-Force WE groupset.
