2023 Ironman World Championship Nice Bike: Matt Hanson’s Unreleased Quintana Roo Prototype

American Matt Hanson has had a busy two years: Last year he raced at 11 long-course events—which included four iron-distance events and two top-15 finishes at both of last year’s Ironman World Championships. This year he’s already grabbed podiums at Challenge Puerto Varas and Ironman Lake Placid (fastest run split at both events) on his way to the men’s Ironman World Championships. This weekend in Nice, Hanson will hope to prop up his speedy run with a strong bike aboard a totally new Quintana Roo prototype that bears very few similarities to the previous flagship, the V-PR.

Take a close look at the fascinating new bike below, well before it’s available to the public, and see what specs Hanson will be running.
