Syntace - Advanced engineering

Syntace is a German company, founded in 1993 by Jo Klieber, engineering and manufacturing high end bicycle components for road, triathlon and mountainbikes. The company is located in Tacherting, southern Germany, close to the Alps. Over the years, Syntace has become one of the most respected manufacturers for alloy & carbon parts - not only amongst industry insiders.
Quality & functionality have always been the major concerns for CEO Jo Klieber and until today each Syntace products reflects this philosophy. In order to achieve this, the company employs five engineers, working full time on the technical aspects of the product range. This already separates Syntace from many other parts manufacturers, where the focus is clearly on appearance & design. That said, Syntace products have been deliberately chosen by top professional athletes such as:
2x Overall UCI World Cup winner and 2008 XC World Champion Christoph Sauser, 2008 Olympic Gold medallist Sabine Spitz and 2011 Race Across America Winner Christoph Strasser. Further, Syntace has become an OEM supplier to established brands like Storck Bicycles, Cube, etc.
Extremely rigorous inhouse testings have always been a crucial part of the R&D at Syntace. Knowing, that many carbon fibre parts from other manufacturers only meet minimum safety standards, Syntace has developed special test facilities (Example: VR-3) to ensure the products survive extreme stress tests.
The results speak for itself in the many reviews and tests throughout the cycling community: bombproof products at very reasonable weights with a 10 years warranty.
