We developed an innovative automated production process for bicycle frames to bring production back to the Netherlands.
Our high tech process is a much needed update on the 200-year old labour intensive outdated process that is still used by the majority of the bicycle industry.
our unique solution
To reshore production we had to reinvent the way a bicycle frame is made. We forgot everything we knew about traditional frame building and looked at the automotive industry for inspiration.
The radical new process we developed starts with flats sheets of aluminium that are pressed into shape to create the two mirrored sides of our frame.
These halves are then, together with the bottom bracket, head tube, and seat post, welded together with a high-precision robotic 3D laser welder. Resulting in a strong, fast, light-weight but also comfortable frame that is unlike anything else currently on the market.
In 2017 we're awarded the prestigious Gold Award at the Eurobike, the world's biggest bicycle fair.
The Gold Award is given to those innovations that set the future benchmark for the entire industry.
