Our Social Commitment
We build our frames together with our partner, the “Yonso Project”, a nonprofit organization in Ghana. A part of the profit goes directly to Ghana and it is invested in the education projects like building schools.
In addition, more than local 30 employees work for the project and receive fair payment; their jobs are sustainable and they have good perspectives for themselves and their children.
Our long run ambition is to create more sustainable jobs both in Africa and in Belgium. Moreover, our bikes help our members, mainly from the migration, in their social inclusion.
Our Quality Requirement
Our bamboo frames are tested by a German testing institute to comply with European standards. Furthermore, a high-grade varnish – as protection against wind and inclement weather – is applied to the frames by a qualified specialist in Germany.
All bamboo bikes are professionally mounted with high quality and reliable components at our factory in Kiel, Germany. The final assembly of each bike is done by trained bicycle mechanics.
Our Production in Ghana
Bamboo grows in a large amount in Ghana. After harvesting, the tubes are dried for several months; afterwards, the best-looking tubes are selected to build the frames.
Precise symmetry is accomplished while assembling the frame by using a German-developed clamping device (jig). The bamboo tubes are carefully joined with hemp fibers and bio-epoxy resin, then smoothed down and perfected. Every frame is carefully inspected with an extensive checklist.
