Our take on what makes a great 29-er: the ANTelope. Like its natural namesake, this is a very agile yet stable beastie. The ANTelope is intended for XC use. It sprints and climbs excellently, and invites its riders to push their boundaries on more technical trails. As a bonus the ANTelope is designed to take 650b+ wheels as well.

  • The popular Dutch cycling magazine Fiets held a “tongue in cheek” competition among Dutch manufacturers to figure out which of their bikes is “most Dutch”. Of all bikes, the ANTelope got the highest average grade across 5 categories, except the one of being Dutch, which we assume is a good thing. Full story here
  • Bike and trekking runs a regular “readers’ rides” feature. They met with Leon, one of our first customers and spoke to him about his ANTelope. Full story here
  • The online bike magazine Velozine took one of our ANTelopes for a spin. This was a custom build running a Lefty. They came away rather impressed. Full story here
