Inside Trust

If you know us, you know that we’ve built our careers on making the ride better — in finding unconventional solutions to some of the industry’s biggest challenges. We’ve created new standards and set benchmarks for innovation. We’ve been doing things differently for a long time. But it’s never been about being different for different’s sake — it’s always been about generating an effect that improves the overall experience.

Founder & Technical Director

He’s been described as a mad scientist, a trendsetter, and a whiffle ball champion; he is the suspension authority, Dave Weagle. His rear suspension designs have more than a few World Championship, World Cup, and EWS Stage wins to their name, which makes him arguably the most qualified bike suspension designer around. So when he emerged from his barn with a wild look in his eye, and a new invention that blew our minds when we rode it, the fuse was lit for Trust Performance to take flight.

Co-founder & CEO

If anyone on earth can be correctly described as a force of nature, Hap Seliga most certainly fits the bill. Equal parts unshakably optimistic and eternally pragmatic, Hap is a ray of sunshine in human form. He co-founded Competitive Cyclist, growing it from a scrappy brick and mortar bike shop into the premier online bike retailer long before internet shopping hit the mainstream.

There are composites engineers, there are carbon fiber technicians, and then there’s Jason Schiers. Part anarchist, part artist, Jason has developed a long list of firsts with carbon fiber. Before he set his sights on making the Message a reality, he founded ENVE Composites, which single-handedly proved that carbon fiber mountain bike rims were not only lighter but better.
