THE SCIENCE OF SMOOTHThe eyes of MTB riders are constantly searching for the next obstacle to "clean." So are we. Our suspension is a tribute to the searchers, the racers, the diggers, the oil sniffers and the weight weenies-all of whom have their own definition of the "science of smooth."
We Didn't Invent the Wheel, but…If there's a rim shape that exists today…chances are we designed it. If we believed in it…chances are we manufactured it. We don't compromise "tough" for weight. But we offer lightweight that is tough and will last. We take the best of what works and make it better.
You Can’t Market Your Way Into Being the FirstIn the early 90’s, ProTaper MTB was the first to develop a specific variable wall thickness for mountain bike handlebars. The result was a lighter, stronger and stiffer handlebar than anything available at the time. This was the birth of ProTaper.
Speed Engineered by Brakes.Speed is only compromised by an inability to control it. We were the first to bring confidence to the bicycle industry with reliable, precision braking through disc brakes. Today, "confidence" is the benchmark for everything we develop and produce.

With more than 30 years under us, we've seen it all and tried even more. Today, we offer butted, bladed, ovalized and straight-gauge stainless steel spokes. Each one engineered to outperform not only the competition but your expectations.
