We develop our bikes and drive train components completely in-house, with our highly skilled team of designers and engineers.
When we set out to design a new bike we of course first think about what we would like to ride ourselves.
And we use powerful design and psychology tools to build a design strategy that helps us to keep focus.
Through rapid cycles of sketching our designers investigate many possible idea’s and solutions for the new bike, some quite crazy, some might be feasible.
During design sessions we choose direction, based on sketches, mockup bikes and prototype components.
We use sound design and simulation techniques to arrive at the best solutions for suspension, the best kinematics and state of the art geometry.
Using mockups and rapid prototyping technology, we can validate and experience the geometry and kinematic idea’s.
High end 3D CAD programs help us to build the complex surface models of our carbon frames and drive train components.
We continuously test new parts by 3D printing and CNC aluminium milling techniques.
“To find really new solutions we strongly believe in experimentally building and testing new ideas.
For us innovation is an expedition, with adventure, uncertainty and draw backs. All with the goal to create great bikes that are different.“
For performance testing we use our location in Croatia. If frames and components survive there, they will pretty much survive anything.
From our Croatian performance HQ we ride our prototypes on Alpine trails in Jamnica (SI) and on the rockiest trails of UCI Premantura (HR), UCI Kamenjak (HR) and Rabac (HR).
