SBT marks PWC testing milestone

sbt0731

SBT, which operates PWC testing programs prior to selling the products, is celebrating 2,000 hours of product testing this summer.

Product testing begins every year around September and ends in May.

SBT’s testing process involves both initial testing on the dyno and accelerated durability on the water.

During testing, the riders are responsible for monitoring all aspects of the PWC. This includes providing product feedback on how the ski handles, sounds and performs with the various parts installed.

Each part is tested for 100-plus hours. Every part must meet or exceed SBT’s quality standards for the company to carry the product.

“We take a lot of pride in our testing procedures and our team of riders,” SBT president Cj Lammers said in a statement. “This is the backbone that makes SBT parts so reliable and sets us apart from the competition. We are the only company in the PWC parts industry with these high testing standards.”

This summer concluded another strong testing season for SBT, with more than 2,000 hours logged by the team.
