The design and management team come directly from the ultra-deep water oil and gas industry.
Designing and building equipment to be used at water depths of between 3km and 5km, where no diver can venture, provides a very solid grounding to work in other industries.
We are used to short lead times, demanding safety and other regulatory constraints and making equipment that will work in an extremely hostile environment without failure.
This background enables us to produce a beautifully designed and technically compelling bike and a detailed business structure in less that two years, whilst maintaining meticulous attention to detail.
