Combination of a cyclo crosser and a 29'er mountainbike. The rigid front fork, the disc brakes and the special handlebars ensure optimal control and an aerodynamic riding position. Ideal for beach races, as well as road and field.
All Koga bikes are built by hand at their premises in Heerenveen, The Netherlands. A single technician is responsible for the full assembly of each bike. The ‘handbuilt by Koga’ logo on the frame is the guarantee of this unique working practice. By individuals, for individuals. This close relationship to the product is reflected in the results: perfection down to the finest detail.
Koga meticulously checks all of the bicycles built in Heerenveen. All of them are thoroughly tested one by one and put through a comprehensive inspection, so we can guarantee they meet the highest standards of quality.

Since 1974 people have had more time for leisure activities, because the working week got shorter. Koga, as a newly-founded cycle manufacturer, took immediate advantage of this trend. Andries Gaastra, former Sales Manager at Batavus, founded Koga B.V. when his father Gerrit sold the Batavus business. He joined the first two letters of his wife’s surname with the first two of his own to form the brand name Koga.
Gaastra’s aim was to bring an exclusive range of lightweight bikes to market. He built the very first Koga at his own home in Oranjewoud, near Heerenveen. Gaastra quickly decided to specify components only from exclusive suppliers, so as to meet the highest quality expectations. Once Koga had become an importer of Shimano components, a network developed including other Japanese cycle manufacturers. Among them was Miyata, a company which at this time had already been producing cycle frames for 80 years. Until 2010 Koga frames were produced by Miyata, and the suffix Miyata was placed after the brand name Koga.
Koga's starting point when developing new models is always to produce the very best product for the passionate (and demanding) cyclist. They dedicate a lot of attention to the finish, and carefully select a harmonious set of components. If that isn’t possible with existing components, they develop their own. This gives Koga bikes their distinctive appearance and stylish look. Less is more!
We offer only the highest quality European bike brands so Koga's enviable reputation for outstanding detail and exacting standards naturally fitted in perfectly. Every single Koga is handbuilt in Holland - they are a perfect addition to our high quality European brand line-up in 2015. As further proof or our trust and belief in the quality of our brands we offer free lifetime servicing on all Koga's, regardless of price (subject to certain T's & C's).
