You may have noticed that many frames and bikes now sport a ‘CEN Tested’ sticker. This means that the prototype frame has undergone a series of strength and fatigue tests carried out by machines at the frame factory. Only when the frame has passed these rigorous tests, can it enter full production.
ALL our frames are put through CEN, and have been for 3yrs. More importantly, after this they are RIDER TESTED, this ensures that the frame feels and handles perfectly and responds to the input of an actual HUMAN BEING! This is the step that many manufacturers skip, it takes longer this way, but this is the reason that our frames have such a great reputation for ride quality AND durability.
