Not long now....
It's been an exciting week in Opena HQ. Cadel Evans won the Tour de France (Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!) and we received the first off tool samples of the Opena also known in the tooling game as T1's. The good news is they fit like a glove, are super strong and look awesome! The surface finish has not been applied to the tool yet so they look a little unfinished but when that's done they'll look even more awesome! We're super excited and can't wait to see the final product which we're sure you guys are hanging for as well!
However, before we can go full swing into production we need to tweak a few minor details of the tool and apply the final surface finish. This is going to take a week or two but we're still on schedule to be shipping in August so don't stress, your Openas will be with you soon!
If you haven't filled out the survey we sent around last week can you please do so ASAP as we need everyone's shipping details so we can arrange shipping with our fulfilment agent.
Pics below for your perusal.
The three closest Openas are T1's, the rest are early prototypes
