What is Psi Care?

Psi Care is the term that describes Psi Vélos' commitment to giving our customers the best customer experience in the industry before, during and after the purchase of a Psi bike. Psi Care consists of 8 service packages designed to transform our customers’ needs and expectations into a complete Psi bike, configured to satisfy their specific cycling needs, within their specified budget range, and with the highest quality standards.

Psi Care empowers our customers by making them the focus in the design and configuration process of their bike, from the conceptualization stage until the final delivery. No customer’s needs or wishes are overlooked or ignored. This is well described in our slogan “Your bike, designed with you and built by us.” That’s how our corporate values mesh and align with the needs of our customers.

The right size for your frame and body shape is determined.
