Our History and Experience
The team behind Ferocity Carbon has been involved in the South African cycling scene for decades. From the fun side to the serious side. From
Above all, we take the enjoyment of cycling seriously.
In late 2013, our team got together and decided to establish a South African focussed brand of high-quality carbon bikes and associated upgrade components. While our product range covers road, track, time-trial, offroad and even tandem bikes, our primary focus remains on servicing the Track Cycling market.
In the years since our humble beginnings we have successfully built a recognised brand that not only looks amazing, but rides like a dream. Our happy customers have won (and defended) many provincial and national championships in just three short years. We can even boast that one of our customers won gold at the 2015 World Track championships.High quality Bikes
We offer premium quality bikes at very competitive prices and with an element of uniqueness. Our bikes offer all the characteristics you would expect from a top level competition frame without compromises. Components are carefully selected to offer exceptional value for money.
Prototype evaluation process
Having a good understanding of the demands of the rider on the bike our bikes are tested extensively by our ex Professional racer, Jacques Fullard. Only once he is satisfied with the characteristics of the frame and wheels do we finalize our finished product. Our testing process generally involves three stages: Prototype, Beta and full Production. Each stage is intended to serve a particular purpose:
- Prototype: During this phase, the product is still in development mode. We evaluate component combinations and general performance. Prototypes generally feature limited branding.
- Beta: Once a product passes the prototype phase, it is fully branded and produced in low quantities for first-adopters. During this stage minor changes are still possible on components, and branding.
- Production: Assuming feedback from first adopters is positive, the product is placed into full production, ensuring that stock is available for potential buyers.
Wheels makes a big difference. If you want to upgrade your bike, wheels is where you start. Our wheel-sets have been designed with speed, reliability, comfort and results in mind. To provide you extra piece of mind we had our wheels tested bu the UCI's approved laboratory and came out with great ratings.
