At its inception in 2009, Momsen Bikes set out to create a home-grown bike brand to be proud of.
While we’re infinitely proud of our South African roots, we haven’t just stuck to SA, with riders competing on Momsen Bikes whilst racing in events worldwide, from the Cape Epic to the UCI XCO World Cups. What this means for you is that year by year we are improving our bikes and making yours a better, faster, smoother, more enjoyable ride and giving you more confidence in the saddle.
We love the competitive side of cycling and put a lot of research and energy into it, but we also understand that cycling is about more than competition—it’s about the conquest. It’s about the thrill. It’s about the challenge. And it’s about the fun. So we’ve created bikes that are suitable for everyone from the beginner and casual enthusiast, to the professional cyclist alike.
We do all this because it’s our passion. It’s our lifestyle – not our job. We live, eat, sleep and breathe bicycles. And so our bikes come with a healthy dose of that passion embedded into their very fibers in the form of each new innovation, advancement and model. We want to share this passion with you.
Welcome to the Momsen MTB Tribe.
Momsen Bikes has its roots firmly planted in the Baakens Valley in the heart of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Momsen Bikes are meticulously developed with the rigorous South African terrain in mind.
All bike models are researched, designed and created by our South African based, core R&D team. Tried and tested on rugged, local tracks from precipitous mountain routes to rugged singletrack trails, in the most extreme off-road conditions - Momsen Bikes are Forged in the Untamed!
Every bike is brought to life with your particular challenges in mind and how that impacts your every ride. We understand your needs and strive to meet and exceed those demands. Key features developed and designed around South Africa’s appetite for world leading MTB Stage Races include Dual Water Bottle Mounts in the Front Triangle of our popular VIPA full suspension models and our I.T.B (Integrated Toptube Box) fixtures on various Hardtail 29er models – allowing essential, easy-to-reach, on-bike access to endurance event essentials. This unique understanding of endurance mountain biking sets us apart and inspires confidence in Momsen Bikes.
