SPHERIK HAS THE RECIPE FOR HIGH END BIKES!
While Bow Cycle is often known for handling bigger brands, we also like to keep our eyes and ears open for new and upcoming brands. The latest newcomer to catch our attention is Spherik – a small Canadian manufacturer that makes some pretty cool bikes. How does a small business from Quebec manage to deliver high end bikes, of similar quality to all the big players on the market? There is a simple recipe, but you have to possess all the ingredients, which is not given to everyone.
1. It takes science
The biggest players in the industry boast of dedicating complete teams to research and development, but these “teams” are more often than not dedicated to the marketing department, eager to renew models and to impress the customer. The design of a bike does not have to rely on a large team, as long as key people have extensive knowledge of design and manufacturing processes. At Spherik, this experience is based, among other things, on nine years of work at the French manufacturer Time, the best school for mastering assisted drawing of computer tools and all stages of designing a bike, whether it is made of carbon fibers or aluminum tubes.
2. It takes HOURS IN THE SADDLE
The designers of Spherik bikes ride a lot. They have under their belts hundreds of thousands of kilometers on different kinds of bikes, under all conditions, including 24 years of high-level road, mountain and triathlon competition. All these hours spent in the saddle make it possible to understand the subtleties that shape the character of a frame and how to optimize them for use on the road, on snow, in the mountains or against the clock.
3. YOU NEED THE BEST PARTNERS
In looking to offer the best bikes, Spherik works with the most reliable and efficient collaborators on the earth. For the last 21 years, Spherik's experts have been collaborating with various partners to prototyping and manufacturing bicycles, components and accessories for bikes. Our innovation here is done without ego, and we want to procure the best thought out products for the consumers, our experts work together with specialized external firms a cross the World. In the result, bonds of trust are forged, special partnerships allow us to offer best bikes and best components at the right price, that's why all Spherik's products are different.
4. IT TAKES THE "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX" ATTITUDE
Spherik’s associates were wise enough to build their business gradually, without burning any steps. They took advantage of the “fat bike” wave to establish their reputation, before initiating the production of wheels, road bikes and, more recently, mountain bikes. They hit the target every time with products that are perfectly suited to their clientele. The Spherik team was not afraid to innovate with a sales structure that combines a boutique in Quebec City with a network of retailers elsewhere in Quebec and Canada. By demonstrating creativity in all spheres of activity, Spherik proves that it is possible to offer the customer what they are looking for – a product as elaborate and efficient as the other major brands, but accessible at a lower price.
