Scott Bikes are an evolution of successful use of technology. Ed Scott’s invention of the first tapered aluminum ski pole immediately replaced the sport’s existing use of bamboo and steel. That revolutionary invention launched a new brand, SCOTT, and fundamentally positioned Scott as a technical product leader. Ed Scott’s initial vision of technical innovation would serve as the cornerstone company philosophy as the brand matured and expanded to new markets.
In 1989, SCOTT introduced one of the most significant product innovations in the history of cycling – the aerodynamic handlebar. The handlebar was strategically utilized by American Greg Lemond in his 1989 Tour de France win. Scott has been going strong since 1958.
Fuji & Kestral Bikes
Originally founded as a Japanese bicycle manufacturing company (Nichibei Trading) in 1899, FUJI is one of the oldest surviving bicycle brands in the world. Fuji’s steadfast philosophy in utilizing the most advanced technology and incorporating elite athlete input into its high-performance products has enabled the brand to endure while others have faltered.
Like all living organisms, KESTREL has a genetic code, a DNA that is at the core of everything they do. They focus on four critical elements when designing their award winning bikes: fit, material, testing, and athletes.
Custom Parlee Bikes
Parlee was founded a decade ago with a simple but lofty goal: To build the world’s best performing race bikes. At the time, carbon fiber was overlooked in the road bike market. But based on what Bob Parlee, founder and owner, had learned during 20 years in the boat building business, it was obvious that composites could redefine the cycling world.
The combination of properly sized tubes, accurate lay-up schedules, and proper molding techniques, make carbon fiber the ideal material for creating fast, light and comfortable performance bikes.
