When we design a bike, our goal is to create the ultimate product in terms of performance. All our frames go through a rigorous engineering and testing process, and our prototypes are tested by our athletes in real time on all types of terrain. We never market a product that has not been tried and tested by our team in real competition.
We race and share our passion for cycling all over the world.
The team also reflects our brand values. Its spirit is based on 3 core principles: Performing, Surpassing, Sharing.
