The SUPERIOR brand was born in 1993, as a response to a need of a decent, light and modern mountain bike. Giving a name “SUPERIOR” to your brand – something better than others, ahead of the competition and designed to win – you must have strong arguments behind. We never thought we could make a mountain bike we would not be proud of, each of them was meant to be ridden by one of us, or our friends. You definitely don’t want to disappoint yourself, you want to be better, be faster and stay stronger. You need to think ahead and stay aware. With a clear vision in our minds, we always knew, what SUPERIOR bicycles should look like. As one of the first brands in Europe, in 2003, we adopted 29-inch wheels as a standard for XC bikes. This means you have to redesign not only your entire collection but also the way you think of riding a mountain bike and riding it fast. Superior was always prepared for such rapid changes in direction, and so were its bicycles.
Looking at the past and into the future, SUPERIOR shows no signs of slowing down.
It’s only getting faster.
We don’t simply sponsor world-class teams and athletes, we work extremely closely with them and use their expertise and feedback to help us develop the next range of products. This, combined with our passionate commitment to innovative design, research and development, materials and manufacturing processes, ensures we deliver technically superior components that deliver the ultimate performance that riders demand, and all at competitive prices.
