Curve Cycling : The Bikes, The Wheels & The People
Designed in Australia and rapidly gaining a revered reputation the world over, Curve Cycling has become synonymous with endurance, reliability and adventure.
Ever curious and always supportive - particularly of the smaller players in the Australian cycling scene - we spoke with a representative of Curve Cycling with the goal of finding out more about the brand.
Adam Lana, who's in charge of brand development, said the people at Curve believe the world is a better place when others are out riding bikes, and their mission is strive to give fellow riders new and exciting experiences via products and adventures.
"We build our products to go beyond the "honeymoon period" and continue performing throughout it's expected lifecycle. We take great pride in each and every piece and would never release something to the market that we wouldn't use ourselves," Adam Lana told Bicycling Australia.
"On our journey, we have consulted some of Australia's most respected riders, carbon engineers, mechanics and the smart racers looking to better invest their money in products that are honest, do what they are supposed to do and promise not bombard the rider with marketing and technical BS. Our story is real and our products are up for as much adventure as you can throw at them."
