Armed with much more revealing insights, we organized our stores around the core ideas of roll:sport, roll:active and roll:family to make it easier for people to find their own path. We developed our exclusive roll:perfect fit body scanning system to make sure that everybody was comfortable and fit correctly on every bike we sell. We created an approach to ride wear that added an element of style for after the ride as well as performance for during the ride. From there we added an absolutely unique collection of the best bikes, the best brands, the best accessories and the best apparel into the mix and roll: came to life.
