Many of our customers are racing all over South Africa and even across the world. Recently we had a SA XCO race at Afriski in Lesotho at 3000m and the debate about racing at altitude got hectic.
Train high, sleep low; train low, sleep high; go to altitude 2 weeks before the race; go to altitude the day before, etc. etc.

Before you think that 29’ers are only for tall people, come and have a look at our Bergamont range. Bergamont has managed to make their 29ers compact and stunning allowing a very large range of people to enjoy them. We have a couple of Revox models to offer and they are all class leading when it comes to value for money.
