Hunt Bike Wheels has taken a new approach to product testing, calling on its customers to apply for free wheels in return for their thoughts.
Available to the trade via distributor ITS Cycling, the promotion calls on regular long distance cyclists to get in touch and apply to be one of six Open Development riders. All the firm asks is for a decent mileage and honest feedback in return for gear totalling around £1,000. That package will include a Giro Synthe helmet and Mobel Hunt team kit.
The successful candidates will be invited to join the Hunt Team on Strava to log their mileage (which you can join whether you make the cut or not) and simply to provide ideas for product development and to be an ambassador for the brand on the road.
To apply to the Hunt development team, see here. Applications close on the 15th February and we’ll announce and contact the successful applicants by the 15th March.
