Supporting Lives and Communities
Xtracycle's vision might have started in the third world, but we've learned that transportation and community ride tandem across the globe. Regardless of whether you live in an agrarian village or amidst urban sprawl, our aim is to build a bond between our customers' lifestyles and the surrounding community. Our philosophy is simple: It isn't the bike that defines a person. It's the people, places, and adventures experienced along the ride.
Striving For Simplicity
We understand that the modern world operates at breakneck speed. Freeways are cluttered, errands are always looming, and there never seems to be enough time to get everything done. That's why we put simplicity first. By crafting highly customizable, cargo-friendly bikes we've set out to create a sensible and affordable alternative to automobile dependence. No fluctuating fuel prices, no traffic, and no handlebar balancing acts -- just get on and go.
Fostering Excitement and Adventure
What is adventure? For some it's riding through traffic during the morning commute. For others, it's zipping down a trail while toting passengers and cargo. Either way, we're all about empowering our customers to experience life in new and exciting ways. Over the years we've loaded up everything from surf boards, computers, passengeners, tents -- you name it. And, even after 15 years, our community continues to surprise us by incorporating their longtails in new and audacious activities.
Working Toward Positive Change
Everyone's heard the saying, "be the change you want to see." One of our ongoing missions is to work and live within this credo. As avid cyclists, we're fans of riding's health benefits, but we're committed to promoting its environmental and social advantages as well. We believe our bikes have the capacity to put a dent in our customers' carbon footprints, but we're also realists. A single company can't save the entire world. But, even if we never quite get there, we'd love to have you along for the ride.
