Sad. Im a big fan of their mtb wheels.

Too bad their business was not a success. I hope they can sell the IP, they developed some good products imo.

A man of Mr. Shook's age probably just shakes his head at the current bike industry, the very same industry that ran down many of his great innovations.

Kast said sales began declining for the brand during the 2016 season. The company began offering lower-priced OE wheels to adjust but was unable to resume growth. "It came down to a cash flow issue," she said.
Too bad. I also used their mtb wheels. Good stuff!

Always liked their seatposts from twenty years ago. Spiffy design.
There's only so many bike parts and accessories, with incredible competition around the world.

R.I.P. to some of the neatest stuff although they always seemed a bit niche in the modern era of wide deep carbon clinchers and cheap OEM. I hope they release a hidden stash of mag clincher rims :shock: :shock: :shock:
