Welcome to Atherton Bikes

To say this brand has been a lifetime in the making is no exaggeration, Dan built his first bike in 1992 when he was just 10 years old. But more recently our dream of pushing bike development as hard as we push our riding has become irresistible.

 

We started Atherton Racing so that we could push boundaries; from building tracks, to producing edits or events it’s all been about doing it our way.

 

Now feels like the right time to put our hearts and soul into our own bike company, designing a range of bikes with the same attention to detail we apply to our racing. Atherton Bikes utilises ground-breaking additive manufacturing technologies combined with carbon fibre tubing to create our ultimate range of bikes.

From the beginning we’ve known how important it is to create an amazing team, thats why we choose to partner with renowned suspension designer Dave Weagle, Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Piers Linney and three amazing guys, Ed, Ben and Andy formerly of Robot Bike Co. We were never going to be a carbon copy of the Far East model so when the stars aligned and the opportunity to do this came up we jumped at it. 

Having the right bike for you and the stage you are at with your riding can transform your experience.

We have started with what we know best, focusing on high level product designed to be ridden aggressively! This year we’ll race our own prototype bike and bring that downhill bike to market, along with a range of trail bikes. The beauty of the additive manufacturing process is that it’s so responsive that we’re able to get our race bikes dialled in much more quickly and each production bike will benefit from every part of this development. 

Having the right bike for you and the stage you are at with your riding can transform your experience. Our big goal is to see kids, all mountain explorers, bike park shredders, racers and e-bikers enjoying our bikes 

Join us!

- Dan, Gee and Rachel Atherton
