How We Test Our Products
Safety Test Standard
ISO 4210-6:2015(Now 2023 Version): Cycles — Safety requirements for bicycles — Part 6: Frame and fork test methods
EN Standards 14764, 14765, 14766 and 14781
AS/NZS Standard 1927:1998
Get ready to experience the ultimate in safety and performance with our carbon fiber bike frames! At Rinasclta bike, we take the safety of our riders seriously and that’s why all of our frames undergo rigorous testing based on the EN ISO 4210-6:2015 safety standard. This standard, also known as Cycles – Safety requirements for bicycles- Part 6: Frame and fork test methods (ISO 4210-6:2015), sets the bar for quality and safety in the cycling industry.
Our frames undergo a series of tests, including the impact test (falling mass), frame and front fork assembly-Impact test (falling frame), frame fatigue test with pedalling forces, frame fatigue test with horizontal forces, and fatigue test with a vertical force.
In addition, our forks also undergo thorough testing, including the front fork static bending test, front fork rearward impact test, front fork bending fatigue test and rearward impact test, and the fork intended for use with hub or disc brakes static brake-torque test and brake mount fatigue test. We believe that our riders deserve the best, and that’s why we’ve taken every precaution to ensure that our carbon fiber bike frames are safe, reliable, and perform at the highest level. So, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, you can feel confident that you’re riding with the best.

Bike Safety Checklist: Essential Items to Check Before Your Next Ride
Riding a bike is a fun and healthy activity, but it’s important to make sure your bike is in good working order before each ride. This can help prevent accidents and ensure a smooth and enjoyable ride. Here is a bike safety checklist of essential items to check before your next ride:
Nuts, bolts, screws, and other fasteners: Regularly check that all nuts, bolts, screws, and other fasteners are tight. Loose fasteners can cause the bike to shift or fall apart during a ride, which can be dangerous. Use a torque wrench to tighten fasteners to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Tires & Wheels: Check the tire pressure before each ride to make sure they are properly inflated. Also, inspect the tires for cuts, cracks, or other damage that can cause a flat or blowout while riding. Make sure the wheels are properly aligned and the spokes are tight.
Brakes: Check the brake pads for wear and replace them if necessary. Make sure the brake cables are properly adjusted and not frayed or damaged. Test the brakes to make sure they are working properly and provide enough stopping power.
Wheel retention system: Ensure that the quick-release lever on the wheel retention system is securely closed. The quick-release lever should be tight enough to hold the wheel in place, but not so tight that it’s difficult to open.
Seat post: Check that the seat post is securely fastened and tightened to the correct height. The seat should not move or slip while riding.
Handlebar and saddle alignment: Make sure the handlebars and saddle are properly aligned and not twisted. This can help prevent discomfort and injury while riding.
Handlebar ends: Check that the handlebar ends are securely fastened and not loose. Handlebar ends that are loose or missing can cause the handlebars to shift or come off during a ride.
In conclusion, conducting a safety check before each ride can help prevent accidents and ensure a safe and enjoyable ride. Don’t forget to check these essential items before your next ride!
