Our history

Notre histoire

To enable all forms of bike mobility, those of today and tomorrow!

This is the ambition of Mach1: the recognised expert in the design and manufacture of components for bike wheels. By offering a wide range of quality, high performance and durable components, and by putting customer satisfaction at the heart of our business, Mach1 proudly equips millions of bicycles every year.

Born in 1937 in the Saint-Etienne region, the historical birthplace of the bicycle industry in France, the production of spokes and nipples was extended in 1996 to the manufacture of rims.

Since then, Mach1 has become a major player in the bicycle industry in France and Europe and continues its industrial expansion across borders.

Mach1's "made in France" know-how is deployed as close as possible to European customers, in new factories recently set up in Romania and Bulgaria: a local production for these local markets.

With more than 85 years of know-how and a leading role in the adoption of technologies such as Tubeless Ready, Mach1 is more than ever committed to innovation in a rapidly growing sector.

"We want to encourage all forms of mobility by bicycle, with passion and commitment to keep this cycle industry alive in France and Europe. "
