Stephenie: Welcome to watchmojo.com. I'm your host Stephenie and today, I'll be talking to you about high end bicycles as well as helmets to protect your head. So, let's get started. So, now I'm with Patrice from Kuota and he's the President of Kuota, North America. Hello Patrice!
Patrice Lemieux: Hello Stephenie!
Stephenie: So what is Kuota?
Patrice Lemieux: Kuota is an Italian brand from Albiate, Italy. We've been around since 2000s. We're producing high end roads triathlon bikes and mountain bike.
Stephenie: I see that every bicycle has a different name.
Patrice Lemieux: Yes.
Stephenie: Can you talk to us about that?
Patrice Lemieux: Sure, like for instance, this bike here was the replica of the Pro Team Kodak Gallery-Sierra Nevada in the US. This bike is called the Kuota Kredo and Kredo means I'm a believer.
Stephenie: I am a believer.
Patrice Lemieux: This is the Conquerer and you can see that bike is very stylish, some guys say at one point, that bike has more curve than Pamela Anderson.
Stephenie: Oh! Watch out!
Patrice Lemieux: Exactly, watch out! The name of the Kebel is from this slang from North of Italy, it means, oh, it's beautiful! Kebelo, kebela, so --
Stephenie: No, it is a really beautiful bicycle and it looks so lightweight. How heavy are these bicycles?
Patrice Lemieux: Those could vary from 10-12 pounds to 18. I would say that $2500 bike will be around 18 pounds.
Stephenie: Yeah, indeed, very lightweights. How about this seat? I see that the seat is very narrow, so I'm just imagining that it must not be super comfortable, but yet, it has a certain purpose.
Patrice Lemieux: Certain purpose, a good saddle doesn't mean that this saddle will be really good for you or it will be good for me. It's like a personal fit, like a pair of shoes.
Stephenie: This is for women and I guess it's for women because it's pink.
Patrice Lemieux: Yeah. The women need to have a larger pelvian area, so also for the comfort because the friction on a woman is different than a man. The bones, the pelvian bone is very different in I would say a worse position.
Stephenie: Okay, thank you very much Patrice.
Patrice Lemieux: You're welcome.
Stephenie: And have a great day.
Patrice Lemieux: Thank you.
Stephenie: Okay, so now we're talking with Dominique about helmets. Is the cheap helmets just as good as an expensive one?
Dominique: Yes, absolutely. All the cheaper helmets are even highly price points, give you the same protection, even racing helmets or even helmets for kids.
Stephenie: What's there in helmets? Is there anything that we should take into account to it?
Dominique: Carbon fiber inserts that will give more stiffness to the structure of the helmet. One thing is very important, is the ventilation. When you wear a helmet for one hour, two hour, six hours, you want good ventilation, you want very good fits or something that is very comfortable.
Stephenie: Whereas if you a buy cheaper helmet, it won't be as comfortable for longer periods of time.
Dominique: That's for sure.
Stephenie: Thank you very much Dominique. Have a great day. Thank you!
