Their first product, the Whisky No7 carbon cyclocross fork with cantilever brake bosses hints at the disc-specific version to come. Whisky’s Jason Grantz says it’ll be here in time for the 2011/12 season.
More of the series, including a full line of carbon fiber components and forks for road, mountain bike and ‘cross will roll out in late July and include handlebars, seatposts and bottle cages.
Tackling perceptions about the durability of carbon fiber, Grantz said Whisky has established rigorous in-house and third party testing requirements that are designed to meet and exceed CEN standards. Grantz, who left Cane Creek six months ago to launch Whisky Parts Co., says he brought his product testing experience along with him.
“We’re testing our products above and beyond current standards; subjecting them to additional tests that ensure durability and inspire rider confidence. These aren’t trophy parts that you can’t ride hard. Everything we make is designed to hold up under strenuous use.”
