NORDEST CYCLES – Steel & titanium bicycles designed with love
We began our journey in 2016 creating the brand NORDEST Cycles and developing our first model Nordest Bardino, our best seller with about 400 frames in steel and titanium sold in 35 countries, about 30% in Germany in just 18 months.
Our products are designed and developed between Tenerife (Canary Islands), Lisbon (Portugal) and Aínsa (Huesca, Spain), where the orography and temperate climate allow the development and testing of bicycles in any of its modalities throughout the year. We build the frames in an advanced factory located in Taiwan, using CrMo 4130 steel and Ti3Al2.5V titanium.
To promote our products, now we have a bike rental point in ZONA ZERO AÍNSA.
