Tuffy products are manufactured by American employees at Tuffy's state-of-the-art plant located in Cortez Colorado. This gives Tuffy the ability to closely monitor the production process ensuring the customer always gets the best product on the market. This strict adherence to the highest quality standards enables Tuffy to back their products with an outstanding warranty which is unsurpassed in the industry. Tuffy's product designs are engineered and extensively field tested at Tuffy's facility by skilled developers with years of experience. Unlike other ""knock off"" manufacturers who skip the design step by stealing ideas from other companies then cheapening the product and having it manufactured overseas to maximize their profit. Cortez is nestled on the edge of the San Juan Mountains and the slick rock desert. Along with its local gems Cortez has arguably the best trails in the world located within a 2 hour radius (Moab, Telluride, Farmington, etc.). This location allows Tuffy employees to field test prototypes, constantly improve existing products through real world use, and develop new useful and unique products through a combination of personal use and collaboration with customers out on the trails.
