The end of Race Face – an insider’s view

I came across this article detailing some of the reasons behind the demise of Race Face. It was an interesting read and seems to point to mismanagement rather than an underlying issue with the products themselves. I have owned (and still do) a series of RF products all of which have served me well… well apart from the XY seatpost that sheared in half leaving a dagger like point on which I could have impaled myself! I know RF  BBs became a watchword for shonky bearings but as far as I know this seemed to have been sorted out.

It is a shame but maybe the gap in the market will be filled by a younger, more dynamic company.
