Van Dessel Cycles was founded in 1999 after I had decided to hang up my racing gear to focus on my creative side.
Our first collection of bikes were functionally unique urban commuting bikes however, after some success with the commuting collection my drawing board was filled with leading edge, high performance designs spanning many performance-oriented categories. I guess the boy can stop racing but you can’t take the racing out of the boy.
From road bikes to cyclocross bikes. Time trial bikes to mountain bikes. I was fully immersed exercising ideas and concepts in an effort to push the envelope in contemporary design and material’s application.
As a cycling competitor I had to have the utmost confidence in my equipment. I was very fortunate to have had a lot of good equipment through my racing years however, things can always be tuned for a better or preferred result. A larger diameter tube, a millimeter here, five millimeters there, what ever it takes to refine the ride quality.
“Ride Inspired” is our tag line. We approach every bicycle design with the same discriminating criteria to ensure every Van Dessel embodies the ride character that will inspire confidence to experience countless adventures. Whether it’s your first race, or hitting up the café, our goal is to ensure your equipment offers performance that fosters that “great ride” experience.
I invite you to take a closer look at our product range and day dream about your next adventure and what equipment needs you may have.
