TBK Bike is a Spanish brand specialized in wooden bikes. Its designs are for lovers of nature and city, but also elegance and originality. You can feel the freedom and the movement that wood offers as you move between cars on the asphalt.
Sevilla/ Monaco. June 2016. If you ask yourself “why wood” the answer is clear: experiencing freedom is possible when riding a TBK Bike because the pedalling in a wooden bike is much more comfortable than any other bike due to the unique physical and mechanical properties of the natural wood fibre. Its specific molecular structure gives it unique qualities in absorbing the vibrations.
Natural fibre absorbs vibrations from the impact like no other material, while maintaining its original form unalterably. A healthy tree of hardwood can be flexed by the wind, but will always return to its natural state.
“From the Tree to the City”
On the other hand, wood is a friendly material to the environment, a renewable raw material whose sustainable use benefits the environment and society. Almost imperceptibly, wood surrounds us in our everyday life and qualities include that it is recyclable, contributes to mitigate climate change, hardly uses energy or emit C02 in their preparation and offers solutions that enable innovative designs.
TBK Bike designs are born from nature. They believe that, if they design from it, they will always be in equilibrium with it and creating something that return and perpetuate a part of what makes it unique: its beauty, simplicity and functionality, three features that they apply to their creations.
In their commitment to the principles of Corporate Social responsibility, the woods from which they manufacture their TBK Bikes come from sustainably managed forests. From TBK Bike, they select the best woods from companies that have relevant certifications. As the concern for the environment increases, consumers want to know that they take well informed purchasing decisions and that their lifestyle does not damage the Earth. As they say, “¡TBK Bikes are not produced at the expense of the tomorrow´s forests!”
“Unique and Different as you”
Finally, as s if it were a fingerprint, the wood grain gives their designs a unique characteristic. No bike is like another. “Escape from the ordinary and the commercial while you ride a bike as exclusive and unique as you. You will feel that you are admired in your ride!”, they say.
TBK Bike gives life to all dreams and beliefs of the team of professionals behind this brand inspired by the love for art and dedication, for years, to the world of wood. Its designs are the final result of this dream, its work, and, of course, its passion for bikes where tradition and technology, a perfect “symbiosis”, can go together to get the most innovative designs and get from the wood everything that makes it unique as a material for the manufacture of bicycle frames. Therefore they work the wood with artisan techniques, but applying the latest technologies in its treatment to get bikes of real toughness, strength, flexibility, lightness, stability and design of a unique beauty, luxury and elegance.
