story

It was only a matter of time that we would start building our own high-end mountain bikes. We are riders, we are engineers and we are born on bikes.

born on bikes

Our design HQ is located in Amsterdam, where we have our team of bike designers, highly skilled engineers and production mechanics.

As Dutch we are born on bikes. We are the country of worldchampion Mathieu van der Poel, Tom van Steenbergen, BMX world champion Niek Kimmann, double olympian Twan van Gendt, Anneke Beerten and Bart Brentjens, the first winner of a gold medal for mountain biking in the 1996 Summer Olympics.

our
company

“We are not part of a large group, we have no investors, no bank loans. So nobody to report to, no corporate bullshit.

 

But we do have over 15 years of advanced engineering experience with our own high-end product design and engineering firm.

 

We don’t care about fast growth or quick profit. We take our time.”

design HQ

Our design and engineering company Alskar Design has over fifteen years of experience in design and development of highly complex products. Both mobility products like scooters, wheelchairs and bikes, as well as medical devices and professional tools.

 

As we are passionate riders, we started making plans back in 2017 to develop our own line of super cool mountain bikes. It started out as a project but soon a separate company with the name Instinctiv Bicycles was born.

production

We build our bikes fully in-house with our own mechanics. Only the raw carbon parts are coming from Asia.

 

Quality checks on all parts is done in-house, coating is done in the Netherlands and also the assembly of rockers, bearings, frames and full bikes in done in-house.

testing HQ

For extensive performance testing we use our location in Croatia. If frames and components survive there, they will pretty much survive anything.

 

From our testing HQ we ride our prototypes on Alpine trails in Jamnica (SI) and on the rockiest trails of UCI Premantura (HR), UCI Kamenjak (HR) and Rabac (HR).

 

Our test rider Swen Toni is located in Switzerland and running many tests on the M and future bike setups on the trials there and he competes with our bikes in races, like the EWS100.
