TriRig caught up with Ben Hoffman, the 2014 Ironman World Champion Runner-Up, to chat with him about the upcoming race, and his Kona rig. Hoffman has been really consistent with his setup, riding an almost identical rig for the last couple years. One notable change: he's now rolling on TriRig's Omega X brakes front and rear. He loves the speed, and loves how they work. The champ has been running them on his race bike all year, but didn't yet have them on his Kona rig. He was so confident in the brakes, he let us come and set them up on the new rig just five days before the race. That's how easy and quick the installation goes with the new brakes. We slapped them on, then had a quick talk. Enjoy the video above, and the gallery below.
