Question: So why confuse people with the “No questions asked” 99% Lifetime Warranty?
Answer: Many consumers read the First Line of any Lifetime warranty with “no Questions asked” and automatically assume no questions asked and often leaves sour taste because when you start the claim process there are a whole bunch of conditions. We just want to be upfront about it with our consumers.
Question: I still don’t understand! The Other guys are No questions asked!
Answer: Ok, Let us suppose Person buys an Awesome Carbon wheelset from a friend at very low cost, and then decide to break both wheelset by dropping it from 4 story building. Person calls this Awesome company up and says “Hey, I’m filing a claim because my old set broke” The assumption of no Questions asked is ok send them back to us and we will replace you with a new one. But that’s hardly the case.
Awesome carbon company will likely ask for:
1. Proof of purchase and/or product registration.
2. Proof you are original owner
3. Photos of damage
4. Serial # of wheels and so forth.
We just don’t want to give our consumers a false expectation on our warranty. We will warranty your damaged wheel 99% of the time!
