Samples are tested for durability, crash worthiness and stiffness before being test ridden for ride quality.
Every component undergoes a second multi-point inspection in the United Kingdom.
ISO 4210 is the global standard for independent bicycle testing.
We are incredibly meticulous when it comes to ensuring the quality of our products.
All our bikes go through a three phase testing process, once before departing the factory, secondly upon landing in the UK and finally signed off by the lead mechanic.
But that alone is not good enough for us - so we quantify that by submitting random samples for independent fatigue and impact testing.
That way, we know for sure that our bikes meet our specifications and quality standards.
Independent testing can quantify the manufacturing quality of a bike or component, but only real world ride testing can really qualify the attributes and ride quality.
What better way to gain this vital information than putting the bikes through their paces in a multitude of race environments.
We work very closely with our sponsored riders and mechanics to gain as much feedback on the characteristics and performance of the product.
"Real world testing is vital to give you the confidence to be at one with your bike come race day.
With well in excess of 3000 miles training and racing, the equipment has well and truly been put through its paces."

Even though our components must first pass the initial quality controls before leaving the factory, we nonetheless rigorously check them again once they arrive in the United Kingdom.
We thoroughly prepare each bike in the workshop before then inspecting for proper race-ready alignment, fit, and finish.
