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.

ATALANTA MULTI- POSITION HANDLEBAR...
The KOGA Atalanta is a multi- position handlebar, due to its 63 cm width it offers plenty of space for the hands. Moreover, it can be adjusted for reach, offering the rider a choice between an upright or a leaned-forward riding position. Depending on the day’s itinerary, the distance to be covered and other environmental factors (long climbs, headwinds) you can position the handlebars to precisely match the required conditions. The Atalanta provides plenty of space for a large handlebar bag, as well as a cycle computer or navigation device.
TUBUS CHROME- MOLYBDENUM CARRIER...
A luggage carrier from the Tubus brand is characterised by its high quality finish. The choice of material is also striking: instead of commonly used aluminium, Tubus carriers are manufactured from thin-walled tubing of the chrome- molybdenum alloy 25CrMo4. The carrier has a layer of plastic acting as a protective coating over its entire surface. The result is a strong, light and durable product. Ideal for the traveller that places great demands on their equipment.
LOWRIDER EXTRA KICK STAND...
The lowrider is equipped with an extra kick stand so that the bicycle can remain standing when carrying a full load.
