We love the balance that the bicycle brings to the world.

We love the beauty, simplicity and power of bicycles.

For two centuries, they have been cleanly, quietly and efficiently moving people all over the place. This lesson of environmental sustainability informs our company culture and pulses throughout our business practices. We run our headquarters entirely on solar and wind power. We use minimal and easily recyclable paper packaging. Further, we make products that are built to last and designed to help make cycling a daily part of people’s lives.
