At Kona, we're all about the freedom and empowerment of the bicycle. We have been since 1988. We still have the same founding owners. We're still populated by a staff of keen, active, impassioned cyclists. We're not big, nor are we that small. Just a dedicated group of cyclists making bicycles for people who love bikes... no matter if that love is new or long established.
We are the hotdog in the corndog of life. The gin in your tonic. Mental floss in bike form.
No bullshit bike frames and parts that are durable, versatile, and outlast the next model year. Founded in 1998 and located just south of MPLS.
At Salsa, we believe a sense of adventure makes life better. The bicycle can be so much more than just a bike; it's a path to new places, new people, and amazing experiences.
We provide the bikes. You determine where they go, and where you go with them. Satisfy curiosity. Explore boundaries. Discover something great.
Salsa. Adventure by bike.
"Call us misguided, but at Santa Cruz Bicycles we believe that to build a good bike, you have to first really love riding bikes. That's an asset we have in spades here. Our engineers are mighty good at working Pro/E, but they are riders first and foremost. Our builders can rail dirt better than most. Our painter can catch more air than you can. Our sales office is filled with bikes that get ridden every day. From the people packing bikes into boxes to the owner of the company, our main obsession and our common bond is riding. Ranging from our sophisticated VPP downhill weaponry to the Spartan simplicity of our new cyclocross frame, the bikes in this catalog are the bikes that we ride. They reflect our passion for riding, and they stand as a testament to our ongoing desire to make our rides better. We're damn proud of them, and we hope you like riding them as much as we do."
Our goal is to make a significant contribution to the equipment and culture of urban cycling. This is not a cash-in, this is not a fad, this is our life, our love, our community, and our dream.
We are a company of riders making products for other riders. We share a lifelong passion for the machines, the people who ride them, and the positive changes both can affect in this world.
Every ride, every mile, every jump, barrier, root section, climb, interval, berm, and drop... Industry Nine delivers unyielding performance with style. Manufactured and handbuilt in our Asheville, NC shop, each i9 product is made with you and your ride in mind. With an array of fitment options, the highest performing hubs, wheel systems and components, and 11 custom color options, we have the part and color to dial your ride. We are all-in with everything we do - people, products and our community. You buy i9 because the details matter between a great ride and a long hike. And well, we aren't here to take a hike.
Innovation will always be the driving force behind Stan’s NoTubes. Why?
Because we ride bikes. We ride bikes to test our designs, refine them, and then test some more. But mostly we ride bikes for the ideas. Every innovative product we’ve created has started out as an idea we had while out on a ride. There’s something about riding a bike that makes you want to go even further the next time, even faster. There’s something about riding a bike that makes you push the limits. That’s our inspiration.
Constantly looking forward, beyond those limits, that’s how we continue to build truly revolutionary products, products that aren’t just slightly better in one or two categories, but that raise the bar in every way. Our wheelsets and tubeless systems are lighter while being more reliable. They grip better for more control while rolling faster to help you push your own limits.
To us, true innovation means always looking beyond limitations. That’s how we develop our products, and that’s why we ride.
