WHO WE ARE
Knolly Bikes was born 10 years ago on the shores of Vancouver, BC Canada. As we all know, this zone was the epicenter of the freeride movement in mountain biking, and continues to be a hot-bed for innovations in riding styles and bicycle design. BC riding will always be the driving force behind frame design here at Knolly.
OUR FOCUS IS SIMPLE
Design the best suspension mountain bikes in the world, period. For our chief designer and CEO, Noel Buckley, this meant designing and patenting his own suspension platform, and then partnering with the best fabricators from around the world to bring his vision for each model to life. Choices like tubing, bearings, fasteners, and finishes are all deliberated carefully, since the finished product must ride ‘like a Knolly’.
This is what sets Knolly Bikes apart from dozens of bike brands that choose to license a third party suspension design, or even choose parts of their frames from a catalog. Yes, you can do that… you can choose a pre-fabricated headtube or bottom bracket shell or dropout and purchase it for your bike design. That’s not how we do things here at Knolly. Every single tube is designed in-house and optimized for each model and intended purpose. These parameters affect choices like alloy series, tube shape and wall thickness, so each Knolly frame takes on a personality all its own. We don’t settle for cookie-cutter catalog frame parts, and quite frankly, neither should you.

Over the years we have realized that Knolly owners ride our products hard and often. This is great because that is exactly what we designed them for. Our goal from the begining was to not only develop bikes that provide our loyal customers with an incredible riding experience, but to also provide solid support as well. Everyone here at Knolly is a rider so we take the engineering and manufacturing of our products very seriously, and we have partnered with one of the premier factories in the world to produce our bikes. We make some of the best product on the market and we are prepared to back that up by offering a Limited Lifetime warranty (to the original owner) on our frames along with an awesome crash replacement program
