GRAN FONDO Readers’ Survey 2018 – These are the winners

In our annual readers’ survey, we asked you for your wildest thoughts, your irritations and your ideas – and more than 4,600 of you participated – thank you! By taking our survey and helping us to make GRAN FONDO Magazine even better, you had the chance to win prizes worth € 5,000. These are the lucky winners:

Cervélo C3 Ultegra 2018

Congrats to Bjorn S. from Belgium, this is your prize!

Anyone who has ridden a current endurance bike knows that comfort and speed need not contradict each other. Cervélo has designed the C3 with generous tire clearance for widths up to 30 mm, which gives you the luxury of riding a racing machine or sweeping over the prairie on a more gravel-focused build. The C3 Ultregra’s lightweight carbon frame has internally routed cables, Ultegra disc brakes and the Mavic Aksium Allroad Disc CL wheels, which do not only promise safety but also peerless riding pleasure.

Value: € 3,499

DT Swiss PR 1400 DICUT OXiC

Congrats to Peter B. from Germany, this is your prize!

Visually and technically, the DT Swiss PR 1400 DICUT OXiC wheels already convinced us with a strong performance when we put them to test. With a low weight, excellent handling and a great braking performance without brake squeal, DT Swiss have created an aspirational wheelset. And don’t get us started on that design!

Value: € 990

Rapha Cargo Bib Shorts + Technical Shirt

Congrats to Marco H. from Germany, this is your prize!

With thigh-contouring fitted pockets and rear pockets on the jersey, there’s no reason not to be without your essentials on a casual ride in the Rapha Cargo Bib Shorts and Technical Shirt. Even when the mercury rises, the shirt breathes and wicks moistures, while additional reflectors on the cuffs add visibility when it gets dark. Whether you dream of weekend adventures or simply cycle to work every day, this combo is a perfect choice.

Value: € 230 + € 65

POC Ventral

Congrats to Yves L.M. from France, this is your prize!

The fact that POC attaches great importance to design when developing their products becomes clear when looking at their product line for the first time and the Ventral is no exception. The helmet weighs 250 grams and has been wind tunnel optimized for aerodynamics. The POC-patented spin technology inside the helmet is designed to significantly reduce the rotational energy generated by a fall. Style and safety, we like it.

Value: € 300

POC AVIP Bib und Jersey

Congrats to Elio B. from Italy, this is your prize!

Lost watts due to wind resistance are a thing of the past with this promisingly drag-defying combination from POC. The jersey’s extremely tight fit ensures that it does not flutter in the wind, and comfort comes from the bib insert which varies in thickness from 4mm to 12mm, so you have comfort exactly where you need it most. The jersey is equipped with mesh inserts that enhance breathability and ventilation in key areas.

Value: € 150 + € 120
