Reynolds Announces New XC Wheel Line
@dsut4392: Lots of American made companies manufacture in Asia, in fact, the vast majority of companies in the bike industry do. QC definitely has unique challenges when working with vendors overseas but it is easy enough to make it work, to suggest that Reynolds doesn't QC their parts and processes is laughable. The symbiotic relationship I was referring to is between Reynolds and Industry nine, I thought that was obvious. You seem to have quite a few biases here but I suggest you reconcile your issues with Asian manufacturing if you want to be a mountain biker. And I could absolutely get parts from any of those companies for cheaper than you. Everyone pays a premium for American made parts, especially if they're exported half way around the globe.... Cheers!

Reynolds Announces New XC Wheel Line
I have to laugh at all of the people on here that will blast Reynolds for allegedly machining hub bodies in Asia on a modern, super light, premium wheelset, that is competitively priced with a lifetime warranty. Yet in the next article they will blast Industry Nine who does manufacture in the US because $800 for a hubset is too expensive. Tough crowd on the PB peanut gallery. @dsut4392: First, most bike components are made in Asia, they have been doing it for a long time and they are the best at it. I don't understand what a bilingual technical drawing has anything to do with anything other than effective communication of design intent to the factory. Second, I clicked your link and looked at a 2017 manual, no characters to be found. Third, you should be happy they are made in Asia because then you are more likely to get it down under than if we made it here, since we are all part of a global economy whether we like it or not. They make a great product that they will stand by so why does it matter where it is made? People in China deserve jobs too don't they?

I9 sources a lot of their carbon hoops from Reynolds. Seems like a symbiotic relationship of American companies to me!

Sweet Recalls 3 Helmets That Do Not Comply With US Safety Standards
Not too different, but you do need to test for each individually if you are going to sell in that market. Mostly the EU just charges way more to get "certified". It's quite the racket they have going!

Sweet Recalls 3 Helmets That Do Not Comply With US Safety Standards
Did you know that Canada does not have their own safety standards for most of these types of products and relies on CPSC (US) standards instead? You're welcome!
