What is a good way to build speed and endurance, all while spending time with family? The answer is biking! Imagine being able to head out with the family and explore the neighborhood, trails, or parks. At the end of the day, you’ve spent some quality family time while building up your body. Jaylon Smith knows all about this as he recently came to Sun & Ski Sports to get the full bike experience. It is where Jaylon found the tools to up his game.
Professional football is all about being the best in the game and constantly working on your craft. For Jaylon Smith, he takes it a step further by being the best he can be for his team and fans. To do this, he added cycling to his routine. By cycling, Jaylon will be able to work out his lower body and build endurance and speed. Specifically, cycling works on strengthening your quadriceps, hamstrings, and calf muscles. It also helps build endurance as you push yourself to go further and faster. Cyclists often describe riding as a “state of mind.” When their bodies tell them to stop, they find that extra burst of energy to keep going. As a linebacker, whether Jaylon is pursuing the quarterback or plugging the gap, that state of mind to keep his body going will be invaluable.
To help Jaylon Smith achieve his goals, he chose a sweet Cannondale Topstone and a Cannondale Synapse. The Topstone is a great all-around bike built for the rigors of trails and gravel roads. While it can be a great road bike, it thrives on the uneven terrain from trails. This bike utilizes a rear Kingpin suspension to smooth out all those jolts and jostle you may experience from a trail. The Topstone can help you build your agility and work your quick-decision making skills as you react to elevation changes. All of these qualities are perfect for a top-tier linebacker. As for the Cannondale Synapse, it handles the roads and some light off-road well. Its main feature is the lightweight BallisTec carbon frameset. Built for the open road, this bike will help you go further on your rides. The Synapse is perfect to help Jaylon dominate the road and field.
