Former All-American swimmer Lauren Brandon took her first Ironman 70.3 win in 2018, riding on Edco wheels in Ecuador as she pushed for Kona qualification.
It comes as no surprise that she has a very strong swim section, but her bike performances have also been catching peoples attention after she posted some impressive times in 2017 and 2018.
Lauren currently rides on our Chronosport range, mixing the deep section Gesero 65 with the even deeper Fluela 85 on her Ventum.
