Cycles and micromobility industries

Bikes are just bikes, right?  Not with Faction Bike Studio. 

 

Nowadays, bikes, scooters and cargo bikes are carrying people and goods in a healty, fun, efficient and sustainable way. Each type of bike has its own challenges, personality and capability of catering to specific needs within the market place. This is why we treat each project with the dedication and respect it deserves, based on our own experience.

01

Cycles

Bicycles have been available for more than 200 years and if we continue making them better, more reliable, more attractive and affordable for everyone, they will continue for another 200 years. With Faction Bike, this is our daily reality.

02

E-Bikes

This is the future of the industry, combining human strength with technological ingenuity. E-Bikes are growing in popularity, as they become more reliable and easier to use. Together, we can realize the future.

03

Micromobility

Shared bikes, scooters, cargo bikes: new transportation solutions for our urban lives.

04

High-Performance

To win triathlon, track or DH races, we make use of all our know-how, skills, network and technologies for you.  We design and optimize the fastest bikes.

05

Components

We envision bikes as systems, and components are essential parts of those systems. Don’t stop innovating just because you don’t find the right components. We can design them for you.

Faction Bike Studio : Redefining True Bike Projects

For us, creating a new 2-wheel, whether it is a bicycle, a scooter or an e-bike, is a complete project that must be based on market needs, adapted to new technologies, exceed performance expectations and offer original design while remaining cost efficient. It is a long road filled with challenges.

 

With Faction Bike’s unique 5-Step Road-to-Success Program and Far Beyond Technology Lab, you can face each challenge and reach a successful destination...every single time.

 


 

Our Services

Faction Bike is no ordinary design and engineering firm. Our goal is to make your project a complete success by supporting you from the moment you imagine your bike to long after it is being manufactured. Not only we design products from the ground up, but we also offer you specific services tailored to your needs:

  • Ergonomics & suspension kinematics to make your bike perform and feel good.
  • Industrial design to make your bike look as good at it performs.
  • Our fast-track troubleshooting service that uses all our experts, skills, data, experience and technologies to solve your issues: production, quality, reliability, testing, engineering, field failures, etc.
  • Our renowned finite element analysis (FEA) service. To predict where, when and why it will break. To solve issues and test solutions even before you invest in tooling and prototypes.
  • Our development test service based on field or lab data acquisition and proprietary load cases. Special and non standard protocols. We’ll test what other labs can’t test.
  • Our Faction Bike+ Services go even further in our goal of bringing your project to success through additional services such as manufacturing, quality, mechatronics and graphic design.
