No, but it will be interesting to see what will happen in the future. For now we feel healthy enough to bend our knees to strap in.
What are your top marketing stories for next season?
We focus on our riders impact on products. We keep the line tight and easy to understand, we do not make products that our team does not use.
Our casted straps are slimmed down to the essentials. Super comfortable and premium control.
