R&D

Research and
Development

The R&D team is totally responsible for the creation of designs from the concept stage, through sketches and 2D models, all the way to the detailed design documentation. Thanks to modern 3D printers the production of a frame model prototype takes less than 24 hours, which significantly speeds up the process from design to production. At the next stage, a pattern is created, which is then tested in the lab and in the field. If all the tests are passed successfully it is put into serial production.

Each discipline has its own requirements that determine the scope and course of its implementation. Design, as the popular saying goes, is everything. A skilfully drawn line, shape, body, and graphics are always the components of customer satisfaction.

More and more, market research has shown that visual perception is becoming the main motivation for purchasing decisions. In order for the creativity of the designers and the requirements of the user to be fully realised, an aspect related to structural engineering must be in place. At this stage, the design undergoes its final feasibility review. The path from concept to implementation is the outcome of a complex process, focused on the expected effect.

Currently, we are working on the introduction of internationally original designs of bicycle frames, which set new standards in terms of technology and technical innovation, and have increased the mechanical parameters, quality and performance. The innovations focus on material engineering, general mechanics and motion mechanics. The design work has already been completed, and the production stage is ahead of us - the bikes based on our designs will go onto the streets in the new season. In the Romet 2020 collection, we will use the new frames on our most popular bikes.

every component of your bike.

LABORATORY TESTS

The testing laboratory with the possibility of testing components as well as whole bikes is an advanced testing machine assembly. It is the most modern of its type in this part of Europe, specialising in conducting research on structural elements for the bicycle industry. With the help of its extensive apparatus, consisting of 10 specialised testing equipment, every bike component can be tested in both the virtual and the real world, accurately reflecting the forces the bike is exposed to during its use.

The combination of the research and production departments at the same site allows the optimisation of the design theories as early as the design stage. Thanks to the use of specialised research infrastructure and innovative technology, such as 3D scanning, 3D printing, MES analysis and state-of-the-art CAD software, these activities have a measurable impact on the final product quality.
