Dirt Rider - - Gear Bag -

SEAN BROWN, pres­i­dent of Rek­luse, tells us how the fi­nal hours of test­ing prior to re­leas­ing the Ra­diuscx clutch to mar­ket in­volved some time be­hind the wind­shield. “We’re in Boise, Idaho, and we had a record win­ter where we had an un­real amount of snow that we typ­i­cally don’t. In our area we typ­i­cally have pretty close ac­cess to the desert, and there might be four weeks out of the year where it’s way too cold to ride, but this year that was not the case. To fin­ish up our test­ing, we had to load up and go down to Saint Ge­orge, Utah, in the first part of Fe­bru­ary to es­sen­tially do a shootout amongst the top two or three ways that we wanted to do this be­cause we couldn’t wait any longer. We loaded up and spent three or four days there do­ing some in­ten­sive test­ing. That [travel] was some­thing we don’t typ­i­cally have to do.”
