story

We are not part of a large company. No investors, no bank loans, no corporate bullshit. Actually we don’t care much about fast growth, we just focus on building very good bikes.

start

We are not only riders, but also designers and engineers with a lot of crazy ideas about how to build good mountain bikes. So, it was only a matter of time before we would start building our own bikes.

 

Back in 2017 we started to develop the first wild plans for our own line of high performance mountain bikes. It started out as a project within our sister company Alskar Design.

 

Soon it got larger and we formed a new company Instinctiv Bicycles to support the ambitious project.

design center

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

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

test center

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 center 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).

production

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

 

Quality checks on all parts is done in-house, high-quality custom coating is done in Europe and also the assembly of frames, bearings and full bikes we all do in house.

 

During the build we are in close contact with the riders we build for, sending them now and some photo’s of how their bike is coming along.
