Lots of testing!

The Detour destruction crew

While Detour is very much a one-man operation I do believe that bringing in external input makes the bags I make a heck of a lot better. Every product should undergo rigorous real world testing to make sure each product that leaves the studio is 100% adventure proof and fit for all kinds of rides and challenges. To achieve this I have assembled the Detour Destruction Crew: a group of outdoor enthousiasts that push my ideas and products to the limit.

The DDC: They test, challenge and destroy to make sure all products can support you to the limits of your adventures. Meet them below!

The places we test Detour gear

Living in Arnhem means that we're only a stones throw away from amazing nature like the 'Veluwezoom', 'Nationaal park Hoge Veluwe', de 'Utrechtse Heuvelrug', the 'Kroondomeinen' and all the places in between.
