Mountain Biking and Mountain Bikes for Africa









Mountain Bike Parts Gear Components and Bikes 

In South Africa we can get any mountain bike parts, mtb gear and components despite there being only a handful of mountain bike accessories manufactured locally. Most mountain bike manufacturers supply SA via local agents, distributors or importers. They agents represent their principles the major international mountain bike companies and manufacturers, and are there to provide local knowledge and support for the international brands. With the growth of mountain biking in recent years we have seen a growing number of international bike brands and products become widely available in South Africa.

There are however a few local manufacturers of cycling related products. The majority manufacture cycle clothing, mtb gear and nutritional supplements. Then there is the odd bike manufacturer and various parts and accessories suppliers.

The best source for product information is the actual manufacturers websites. Most of the bike manufacturers have comprehensive websites with detailed specification lists. Many of the mountain bike parts and component manufacturers also have detailed information and manuals available. If you are looking for specific parts or products then go to the manufacturers website, find the local distributor and contact them for availability. We have also listed the main local distributors and their associated brands.
