Every week, the Specialized mtb development crew scrambles to get their office work done early so they can run to the forest and do some trail testing. Here is a great glimpse into their test rides.
I’ve had the opportunity to ride and hang out with this Specialized engineering crew and this video really shows how they ride and they interact. They love riding and they are always pursuing products that will help them enjoy their trail rides even more. It’s a bit of a selfish pursuit but in the end, it has to mean something to one’s self to be completely dedicated to the work and the lifestyle. After all, that is why I started mtbr.com. I wanted people to help ME buy better products.
So as this crew develops better products for them, we get to benefit with better bikes for us. However, they all wear these funky ski goggles though and I’m not sure I’ll take their lead on that
