“Improving mountain bikes”

Our vision

„Improving mountain bikes”

We develop products from riders for riders and pursue not only the aim of having a product, which not only lives up to our highest expectations of ourselves, but also satisfies every passionate mountainbiker in search for better material functionality. Our motivation for developing the Eightpins dropper seatpost was our own dissatisfaction with the commercial products on the market as well as the conviction that there must be a better solution. That’s why we have set ourselves the goal to develop the dropper seatpost of the next generation – a seatpost with a high level of innovation, which has never been seen before.

Marketing and service

The marketing of the Eightpins dropper seatpost is based on two pillars, which complement each other perfectly. First of all, we take all responsibility for marketing and sales by ourselves, because it is us who simply have the best knowledge of our seatpost. For operational sales, we have entrusted our partner Syntace. This means that we use existing structures and can guarantee that the customer gets the best service possible service to our customers.

Made in Austria

It is not for nothing that our products carry the seal “Made in Austria”, because we care about the strengths of the domestic market. The Eightpins dropper seatpost was not only developed in Austria, it is also based here when it comes to production. In fact, the production is one of our core competences. Only the blank for the seat tube is produced in Taiwan; the processing of the seat tube and the production of all further parts of the seatpostas well as the assembling is done in Austria. We benefit from the expertise and quality standards of Austrian companies and follow our guideline to forge sustainable partnerships and cooperations with our peer companies. Our approach not only aims for optimal added value in the country and allows faster production cycles, small batches and short-term reordering. In turn, this means a fast and reliable availability by implication for our customers.
