The second in their series comes from Miki Feck with his Incarnate V2 frame colorway and signature United stem and pegs.

How is the Thrill frame treating you so far? Axelle Etienne: I love this bike. It’s light and stable and I feel really comfortable on it. I ride on this bike since few month and I can’t wait to do more races with it!
Grey frame, all black parts and golden hubs. Any reason for the colour of the hubs? Axelle Etienne: I like gold haha. I like to have some different colors on my bike.
What is the geometry and length of your frame? Axelle Etienne: It’s a pro XXXL
Do you like Aluminium frames? Axelle Etienne: Yes I tried a Carbon frame a few years ago but my favorite is definitely the Aluminium’s one!
How long have you been riding a Wiawis bike now? Simone Tetsche Christensen: Nearly 2 years
How do you like the feel and look of your bike? Simone Tetsche Christensen: I really love how it both looks and feels. I like the clean black look of the frame, with the rainbow spokes standing out. The pictures are of my training bike, where I chose blue

How's life on the Formula squad? Anthony Dean: It's great, it’s a small emerging team and I am enjoying helping it re-grow.
The colour of your bike matches the Aussie colours. Do you have a say on the colour of your frame? Anthony Dean: Yes, I wanted an Australian frame to match the outfit. As you can tell I love to color coordinate haha.
Is strength more important than weight on your bike?? Anthony Dean: A little of both, power to weight is also important to me! And while carbon fiber is very strong when done right.

When did you first pick up a Wiawis frame? Mathis Ragot: Winter 2017-2018
How long did it take you to get used to it? Mathis Ragot: I got immediately used to it. I rode carbon back in 2015 but didn’t like it, and re-tried it with Wiawis and fell in love with the bike on my first session. Did a gate pb (personal best) at the first session.
