Our bikes are local, but our footprint is global
Taking cars off the road is critical, but the way we do it has an impact. We recognize that every step in the build process, from raw material extraction, to machining, painting, assembly and shipping, has a harmful impact on the environment.
By staying aware of how our decisions impact the environment, we hope to learn and continually improve. And by opening up about our impact, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same and move us all forward.
Final Assembly and Testing
We take all the parts sourced globally and build a bike to your custom specifications. Each is tested prior to shipment on the mountain roads right out our garage door to make sure everything is just right.
Frame Welding and Paint
Etique Fabrications, located in the manufacturing hub of Montréal, has been welding and restoring frames for years.
We trust them with the most exacting manufacturing step of the process, welding and powder coating of our rear frame.
Frame Beams and Brackets
Home to our CNC machinists and aluminum extruders, Dongguan and the the neighbouring Shenzhen are the beating heart of manufacturing in China.
While we strive to reduce waste by converting to hydro-electric-powered aluminum smelters based in Canada, we couldn’t ask for more capable and responsive suppliers.
Salar de Atacama, Chile
Chile, Argentina and China are the biggest worldwide exporters of raw Lithium, material critical to the manufacturing of our batteries.
We are not yet at the point where we can ensure working conditions are safe and all local stakeholders are fairly compensated for the resources they own. However, this is goal we will strive to achieve through our ability to choose from manufacturers acting responsibly in the industry.
