Bicycles were introduced in the 19th century in Europe and, as of 2003, the number of bicycles worldwide had already eclipsed one billion, twice as many as automobiles.  They are the principal means of transportation in many regions. 

In recent years, the number of people who had adopted cycling as a type of hobby or fitness had dramatically increased. The number of accessories, protective or decorative, that came along this sport had also increased.

Every year, more than 1 million people are involved in bicycle-related accidents. All global governing bodies are also aware of this uprising and imposed a vast array of laws and regulations on the construction and components of the bicycle plus its accessories to emphasize the importance of safety.

Since the beginning of 2014, over 10 cases were already reported around the globe due to faulty parts and/or connections that led to the recall of these products for replacement.

SGS have constructed state-of-the-art laboratories to thoroughly test and inspect all required parts and components to ensure the workmanship of these products are hazard-free and users can fully enjoy the pleasure it brings.
