At MPI they take every aspect of construction and safety to heart, in the most accurate and dedicated way possible. Before becoming an MPI product, our structures need to pass our internal quality control tests. Amongst the many, one is a torque structural steering wheel test that is considered one of the most severe on the “road car” market. Another is a stress test to see what our steering wheel does when load is applied to it. This simulates what happens when you keep your hands on the steering wheel during a severe impact. Just couple of examples of how our technology works and how safety and construction R&D is applied to all MPI products.
