For today's BOTW feature, we have Eric's FiftyOne Assassin in the 'Black Ops' special edition paint scheme.

Eric is one of our loyal clients who has joined us on a couple of European road trips. After moving to Greenwich from NYC, he wanted to explore his new home via the many amazing gravel paths we have here.

After lengthy discussions weighing up how Eric ultimately wanted to ride, we landed on the FiftyOne Assassin. The versatility of this bike and ability to easily adjust its geometries made it a clear winner

Eric chose FiftyOne’s latest colour scheme, the Black Ops because of its subtle, minimalist elegance. “Let the legs do the talking” was the accompanying sentiment with this bike!

The Assassin’s versatility was one of the main reasons Eric chose this bike, but we pushed it even further with a SRAM ‘mullet’ set up. The 10x52 cassette has a lot of gearing to offer and paired with the ENVE G23 wheelset and Pirelli Cinturato H model, we knew this bike would sustain heavy pounding whilst maintaining high performance.

We’re super excited to see Eric out on our next gravel ride as we find the next path less paved! Here’s to the next adventure.
