#2 Practical testing
This is one of the key steps as we assemble the equipment as a customer would to go through the setup and to document first impressions.
Initial impressions of the equipment cover its quality, design, and materials. The evaluation also includes the tools required, clarity of instructions, and the time it takes to install it.
The goal of practical testing is to mimic the "everyday use".
We subject each product to real-world conditions. Loading cargo racks or carriers with sports items, different loads, taking them on road trips, testing sports components in winter, and other all-year round conditions.
The variability of conditions help us to evaluate sturdiness, ease of use, and impact on vehicle handling or fuel consumption.
