Product Testing

Flaer

If it works in Scotland it will work anywhere! 


Scotland is a fantastic location for researching  and developing new products. It has testing terrain and

changeable weather conditions which ensures that if a product can withstand Scotland it will last across the world.

Many mountain biking and cycling products are tested in temperate climates which do not give a true reflection on how they will perform in countries with wet, cold and more challenging terrain – many products are not performing to their highest level for lucrative markets including the UK, Northern Europe, Northern America and Asia.


Demo Days/Launch Days

Lomo product day

The location of the Mountain Bike Centre of Scotland makes it ideal for both product demo days and product launch days.
