Winter and bicycles aren’t automatically a good match, which is why so many countries have given up on the whole idea ages ago.
We in Finland have not, even though every year our streets glimmer with ice and everything less than a metre tall is covered in snow.
We’re a bunch of tenacious buggers over here, and our family lines are still going strong despite many of us having, let’s say, landed on the tube after the rear wheel has futilely spun in search of grip on an icy street.
Here in Lieksa, we finally decided we’d had enough of spinning our wheels. We brought back this bicycle wheel factory with a long tradition behind it (the only such factory in Scandinavia, by the way) and began to manufacture studded winter tyres for our cycling brothers and sisters.
Lieksa is in that part of Finland where winters can still be called such — that means a metre of snow and -30 degrees Celsius, if we’re lucky.
So, if anyone on this globe knows a thing or two about winter and how slippery it gets, that’s us.
After a lengthy R&D process, the world is finally one step closer to perfection: our range of summer tyres was launched in spring 2022.
We are proud of our roots, and that is why we have named the flagship models of the range after local place-names. Our city bike tyre is called Lieksa, while our offering for mountain bike enthusiasts goes by the name of Koli MTB.
The range also includes other models with different tread patterns. Check out the details on our product page.
We also offer tyres for harness-racing sulkies and classic mopeds. Harness-racing tyres from our Sulky range are used on international racetracks, and our
Moped tyre range is the only option for your classic moped. Check out the details on our product page.
Our goal is to offer the world’s best bicycle tyres to our loyal customers. As keen cyclists ourselves, we take pride in keeping our promises and delivering products that do what we say they do.
