story

It was only a matter of time that we would start building our own next-gen mountain bikes. Because we are born on bikes, we are engineers and we love riding.

born on bikes

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

 

Of course we do not have mountains in the Netherlands. But 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.

experience

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 most of us 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.

 

At this point we are building our bikes fully in-house with our own mechanics. Only the raw carbon parts are coming from Taiwan, but 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.

 

no one is you

Our aim is to build seriously good bikes that support the feeling of freedom that we experience while riding in the most beautiful places in nature.

 

Bikes that make you ride smoother, faster and with more control, no matter if you are a pro rider or a starter. Bikes that build your confidence and are outstanding in performance and design.

“We are a bunch of riders and engineers with a passion. Our companies are not part of a large group, we have no investors on board and we do not need to report to anyone. All we try to do is to design and build great performing bikes. The money we make, we invest in the company, to design even better bikes.”

test locations

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.
