TOPEAK
For many, riding a bike is more than simply rolling on two wheels. Because once the ride starts, it’s impossible to think about anything else. All that exists in life is what’s in front of you right now. Long grinding climbs and sweet descents, empty country roads and clogged urban streets, tailwinds on a sunny day and flat tires in the rain. Life is distilled down to the ride. That’s why we say ride equals life. At Topeak we know this feeling well.

We’re riders and we’re passionate about finding new ways to make each and every ride the best it can be. In the following pages you’ll find innovative new products and time-tested favorites all designed with one thing in mind: making the ride, and life, the best it can be.

TIFOSI
In 2003, Joe & Elizabeth Earley, created an eyewear brand that stood for quality, style, function, and value. With the support and passion of our partners and customers, Tifosi has grown to become a recognized, relevant, and trusted brand in cycling, running, outdoor and golf. We would like to take a moment to thank you, our loyal customers, without whom we could not have succeeded. Thank you for helping to make Tifosi the #1 selling brand of eyewear in specialty cycling and running stores.* We look forward to the future, and as always, we welcome your feedback and input in helping Tifosi to be the best brand of sports optics in the world.

FFWD WHEELS
Building fast, strong carbon wheels: that was our goal as we started our company FFWD Wheels in the year of 2006. Craftsmanship, high quality and durability are our most important values. In a few years of time FFWD Wheels has grown into a company with a global distribution network and a solid reputation.

All FFWD Wheels are handmade at our company in the Dutch town of Zwolle. Our wheel builders pay close attention to every wheel. This leads to wheels which are feather light and strong as iron: FFWD Wheels are no mass product. FFWD Wheels are of high quality, hand built in the Netherlands.

KMC CHAIN
With over 30 years experience in manufacturing, KMC adopts the state-of-the art technology. However, we always know what is most important: the people behind the company. Actively involved in cycling we always look to make the best possible products, which results in very interesting innovations and tremendous product improvements.
We thank you for your interest in our products, and invite you to try KMC – we will not let you down!

GIRO
Giro comes from a unique place. Santa Cruz, California’s location—at the intersection of surf and mountains—attracts people of an independent mindset: outdoors people; iconoclasts who set their own priorities, more inclined to put human values ahead of corporate interests. Counter intuitively, it turns out that Santa Cruz, a place where business shuts down when the surf is up, has proven to be a powerful entrepreneurial incubator.

KNOG
We’re a team of creative designers and engineers who refuse to conform to anyone or anything. What binds us together is the same passion and ferociousness to smash the mould, challenge the status quo, and revolutionise the way we think about lights and locks.

Being out there everyday smashing the main roads and rolling softly through the back country and being attuned to global sub-cultures is where we find our inspiration. It’s what drives us to consistently deliver fresh and innovative products that enable riders, walkers and urban adventurers around the world to discover their own sense of freedom, have fun, and live in the moment.
