About our Bikes
The easy way would have been to order off-the-shelf mountain, hybrid, or city bikes like other tour companies; it sure would have been easier and cheaper. But that’s not what we are about – we are passionate about our bicycles! We are bicycle fanatics and want our customers to experience the unbeatable ride quality that bamboo offers.
Our bicycles are mainly build from natural materials, such as bamboo, sustainable wood, rattan and hemp. We are constantly improving technical design and material selection, based on our expertise in technical engineering and the bicycle industry. Bamboo is shock absorbing and incredibly strong. For us it is the perfect material to craft our bikes. Besides, what is more appropriate than riding a bamboo bike in an area where bamboo grows so abundantly?
But t is not that easy to design a safe, trustworthy bamboo frame that can last a lifetime. The appropriate bamboo species must be chosen and thoroughly treated. The lugs (joints) must be carefully designed to provide the required strength and stiffness, while preventing any cracking. We can tell a lot more about our bikes, but why don’t you come and try?
