To Say 2016 was busy for FOIL just wouldn't do the year justice. If asked to sum it up in one word I would choose GROWTH.
The market has responded to our brand and we have being working tirelessly to keep pace with the required growth all the while ensuring we don't run before we can walk. We have been working closer with our teams and sponsored riders for feedback and testing of new products and combinations to ensure we are truly delivering a worthy product. Development of new moulds has taken a lot of planning time in 2016 and we look forward to rolling the success of these out in 2017.
One of the largest milestones in 2016 was UCI approval across our entire range of wheels. This was necessary due to the ever expanding number of UCI sanctioned events or local races run under UCI rules. We are very proud that our wheels all exceeded the testing standards required with no modifications or changes required - basically do it once do it right.
Our sponsorships grew in 2016 and we are continuing this support again in 2017 with individual riders, local teams and the launch of our very own Team CCN-FOIL in conjunction with sportswear powerhouse CCN Sport. Follow us on FB https://www.facebook.com/teamccnfoil/
As a wheel manufacturer we have been watching very closely the industry movements in relation to disc brake equipped bikes. Following testing throughout the year we are please to be adding a disc brake wheel set to our lineup in January. Stay tuned for the FD44 to hit the store.
Our customers asked for options and on this we delivered hub upgrade options featuring World Tour proven DT Swiss hubs and we look forward to adding colour and custom decal options in early 2017.
We thank you all for your continued support and for joining the FOIL revolution.
Best wishes for the New Year.
