XOTIC CALIFORNIA

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN EXPLAINED

XOTIC QUALITY IS WORLD WIDE

We Build To Impress

The Xotic philosophy spans to our global locations. No Xotic product will ever reach your hands unless it adheres to our strict quality guidelines controlled by our U.S. location. By seeking only the best materials, extensive attention to detail and a knowledgeable team behind it, we are always proud of our product. In fact, we are often compared to premium boutique quality build, at a reasonable price.

While our Research and Development and manufacturing team is based in Van Nuys California, we also use our satellite locations in Taiwan and Japan to help us bring you hand built products at a price point that is affordable yet sturdy and road-worthy. We admonish the build-to-fail philosophy. Instead, we believe in a build-to-impress standard which has earned us respect and high praise in the industry.

Once we receive parts and products from these locations, we diligently finish the build process at our corporate location for optimal results and final testing and approval before it reaches the market.

At Xotic, we are proud to bring you unique, road worthy gear at a fraction of the cost of comparable builders.
