Probably the weirdest name in the business, the name Pässilä Bicycles has its roots deep in our home dirt. Our home trails wind their way through a diverse region called Pässilä, in a small community called Nopankylä, Finland. Once a post ice age seashore, the Pässilä wilderness offers trails with lots of variation in terms of technicality, elevation and nature. The place is special to us and has offered us more fun times than we could've ever imagined. Home trails matter, where ever they're located. Hence the name.
The Pässilä Bicycles story dates back to 2006 when a group of friends, over a beer after a great week of riding, came up with an idea of starting a bike company together.
Well, it took a while but now most of the details have been sorted out and Pässilä Bicycles is here to stay.
Why? We can't play shit and half of us don't even grow hair anymore, so a rock band was not an option. We started building up this company as our playground for doing what we love and enjoying the ride together. We're not here to change the world. We're here to offer an alternative and to (selfishly, we admit it) satisfy our need for creating great bicycles.
Our mission is simple. Create different, capable and fun bikes for us and for other riders out there searching something else than another year model.
We, the Pässilä Bicycles crew, have known each other since we were kids and been riding mountain bikes together since the early 1990's. Over the years we've ridden just about every kind of mountain bike there is. From fully rigid to full suspension downhill bikes to fat bikes.
The common interest in mountain biking and having fun on our home trails have inspired us and kept us together over the years. We want to welcome each Pässilä Bicycles rider to the family. We'd love to have new friends all over the globe.
