Sample Seven

<strong>We ditched the rulebook, cut a new path and created a new way. From a Connecticut workshop, we set about revolutionizing cycling for the better, for everyone. We assumed nothing, we iterated and reiterated and from day one we have worked on pioneering materials, ergonomics and technology, and we haven&rsquo;t looked back since.</strong>

Frome, UK


We heralded aluminum and carbon-fibre manufacturing while everybody else out there stuck with steel, we shook up the suspension establishment with single-sided forks, designing incredible frames and products that reinvented racing, creating award-winning bicycles that helped push people further.<br /><br />People have called us crazy, ridiculous, and worse. And yet, right from the outset we knew what we were doing felt right and was a damn sight more exciting &ndash; this unique passion fuels our never-ending drive to make iconic bicycles that just work better. Bicycles that make your ride better. Wherever you ride, whatever you ride, ditch the rulebook and let&rsquo;s ride together.
