This European brand makes bicycles designed for city use, racing, and with fixed gears. Materia Bikes asks, “Do you remember your first bike ride?”

Safety and Functionality
Every Materia Bike is extensively tested in both computer simulations and a certified laboratory. Use your bike and ride with peace of mind knowing your wooden bike passed laboratory testing. It doesn’t make it to your hands unless it meets safety standards in their lab, the EFBE Pruftechnik.
Materia Bikes stands behind every bike and extends a five-year warranty on the wood frame. The exact geometry of every bike is available online. For example, the Road Bike Tempo comes with a head tube angle of 73 degrees and a seat tube angle of 74 degrees. Expect consistency and elegance from this brand.
Why Wooden Bikes?
The company is committed to wooden bikes for each product. This is because they believe wood is timeless, curved, and beautiful. Experience freedom with feelings, textures, and the real thing as a Materia Bike transports you.
Wood comes with natural characteristics to make it a superior bike frame product. Unlike other materials, wood can absorb vibration. It also is strong, has a higher strength to weight ratio, and is easy to shape as needed. Materia puts it best, “Wood and wheel. Wheel and wood. Wooden wheel. Out of the woods.”
