I have never heard of them. Apparently they were at Eurobike and I went to the Asian suppliers section and didn't see them... but there are a bunch if brands, sub brands and connections.

Generally Taiwan is the location for carbon fibre so with Chinese production you have to take more care as they prioritise their low cost but overlook quality or quality control and a true understanding of cycling.

Speaking for them is they appear to be out there with some sponsorship of small teams. My approach would be searching for customer reports but if you do order direct, you can't expect the same consumer rights and potentially will get some 'lost in translation'.
