Here at Materia Bikes headquarters we take our work seriously. Safety and comfort is our mantra. We want you to feel safe when driving our wooden bikes thus every bike we make is tested both in computer simulations and in a certified laboratory – the EFBE Prüftechnik
Materia Bikes is a story of feelings, textures and a real thing. Touching the wood to feel the warmth of its body when curved in the streamline of the wheel, to feel a gentle woody leather scent, to feel the coolness of the bracing metallic touch.
Do you remember your first bike ride? Each of us has his or her own story, as in the childhood it took us to the places where adventures were born. The feeling of freedom was given so that we could enjoy the moment. It took us to the place to mee the girl from the class to lurk beneath the oak on a rainy afternoon and to stand closer to each other.
Wood and wheel. Wheel and wood. Wooden wheel. Out of the woods.

Kristaps Knops is a Latvian Master cyclist and former National team track cyclist who has been competing in races throughout Europe for the last 17 years. We at Materia Bikes began our relationship with Kristaps in the early 2017 and it has turned out to be a winning combination for this 32 year old cycling enthusiast- rising from 6th place in 2016 national ranking to winning a Silver medal in Latvian championship and 3rd place in the overall nationalranking.
The Road bike Tempo has prooven itself to be a worthy companion for K.Knops as he has covered around 10,000 km so far in 2017 in his training sessions and competitions. Kristaps also clocked a top speed of 120 km/h on his Road Bike Tempo – possibly the fastest anyone has ever ridden on a wooden bicycle.
Oskars Gailišs is a member of the Latvian Paralympic cycling team. After an unfortunate accident in 2004, his right leg was crushed. This left him unable to move his foot and his right leg itself was also 1cm shorter than the left.
In 2012 he started his active cycling career and the past five years he has continued to improve his performance and impress all his supporters.
Here At Materia Bikes we strive to achieve excellence like Oskars strives to improve himself. We are proud to be a sponsor and supporter of Oskars and wish him all the best on his road to Tokyo 2020.
