GEAR

Epic Cols is proud to have Shimano as its title partner. With decades of making industry leading bicycle components, Epic Cols bikes have been equipped with Shimano Di2 Hydraulic groupsets. Seemless shifting, climb power data and unrivalled stopping power on every ride.

For years world class athletes, Olympic teams and Tour de France riders have been using HED wheels as the ultimate speed weapon. Epic Cols is using the Vanquish RC pro series to the same affect. Fast, lightweight and echoing the same mentality. Maintaining a relentless pursuit of excellence.

The tire, the rider’s connection between the bike and the surface. A choice which isn’t made lightly as not only can it affect the quality of the ride, but also the ability to push the rider and the equipment to the fullest. Epic Cols is using the world class Panaracers Race Evo series to get the most out of every Epic Col.

What you wear not only expresses your rider personality, but is critical to the enjoyment of the ride. Epic Cols has partnered with Paria.cc to offer optimised and custom climbing apparel. Every detail thought about to ensure supreme comfort and styling.

Data is king. With each Epic Cols content trip involving multiple climbs, being able to build, store, and ride the climbs accurately and easily is essential. The Mega C GPS from Lezyne is providing a reliable, accurate and easy to use platform. Some super nice features such as inbuilt mapping and incredible battery life make this an invaluable piece of equipment.

The humble saddle can define your ride. Likely one of the most personal items when riding, Daniel Hughes has chosen the Repente Latus saddle due to its lightweight and short nose providing all day comfort and the ability to slide forwards to get into that super fast TT position.

For decades riders in the Tour de France would not wear a helmet. Riding at speeds over 60mph this seems unfathomable, much like the idea of a 3D printed custom fitted helmet just a few years ago. Aero, safe and custom fitted, HEXR seemed like a natural choice for Epic Cols.

Picking the perfect line, seeing the perfect photograph opportunity and ensuring optical perfection, what glasses you wear can have a huge effect. Eyewear from 100% are providing supreme optical clarity.

When viewing video, many will say that they will watch video content even if the quality isn’t perfect. They won’t however put up with poor quality sound. All sound for Epic Cols has been recorded using broadcast grade Rode Microphones. The Videomic pro for on the move content and the masterful NTG5 with boom pole for deliberate interview style recordings.

Epic Cols; always on the move, utilising the highest grade equipment and often self shooting. All equipment is considered for its form and its function and Peak Design have got the balance between form and function at a perfect equilibrium. Epic Cols is using the Dufflebag, Camera cube and the ingenious carbon travel tripod which offers incredible stability, low weight and most importantly the ability to set up and move on from a shot fast.
