SIMPLON Fahrrad GmbH

SIMPLON is a technologically leading bicycle manufacturer with an outstanding image and most respected for quality and innovation. We have a history of over 50 years of bicycle design and production and with over 20 years of experience in carbon manufacturing technology we were among the first to introduce carbon to bicycle frame manufacturing.
We are known for bicycles that have been optimized in terms of weight and performance. Our products feature individual setups provided through a customization approach and manufacturing based on individual customer orders. The number of possible component/feature combinations across the range is around 100.000. Main markets are Austria, Germany and Switzerland as well as the Netherlands and Belgium. We are in the process of expanding our distribution network across Europe and beyond. SIMPLON has been solely family owned until recently. With the addition of Hannover Finanz as a strategic partner, we are restructuring the company and making huge steps of improvement in our marketing/sales activities. SIMPLON is a David in a world of Goliaths.We are probably one of the best kept secrets in the world of premium bicycles. Our
manufacturing site is based at the foot of the Austrian mountains at beautiful Lake Constance.
