"The name Easton brings quality, strength, and innovation. I am pumped to run the Aero 55 this year knowing their aerodynamics are on point. Plus I'll save in the rolling resistance department with tubeless. I’ll take the free watts where I can get em! NO MORE GLUING TUBULARS!!!!”
- Matt Lieto

Matt’s journey into professional endurance sports was vastly different to that of his competitors; at the age of 21, he lost 80lbs by skateboarding for 5 hrs a day. Matt’s true passion in the sport of tri is riding his bike. Fast. When asked if he would have preferred to be a pro cyclist he jokingly answers, “Yeah, but that sh*t is hard! In triathlon I get to be mediocre in 3 sports, that’s much easier”. Matt prides himself on laying it out there on his bike, earning the fastest bike splits and course records when he races. "It gives me a great goal in the event and allows me to play to my strengths. If it's got two wheels, I'm interested".
