Bamboo is one of the strongest materials in nature, it can withstand up to 1ton/cm2 of compression force, this is twice the tolerance of steel. Bamboo is also lighter, making it ideal for bicycle construction. Other incredible quality is that it absorbs as much as x4 more vibrations than carbon fiber, making our bikes, the smoothest bicycles (ideal for long rides). Neither bamboo nor carbon fiber are subject to fatigue. Your bike can endure daily use and falls without losing its strength.
In comparison, it takes up to 15 years for a regular pine tree to grow and produce lumber, for bamboo its only 3 years, making it a very renewable source. Naturally bamboo generates 30% more oxygen than trees, this helps break down Co2 generated by cars.
In 2007 we began building bikes in my mom’s garage, we sold our first bike in 2010 and steadily we’ve been growing our catalog one model at a time. All bikes are handmade and made to order. We have 12 models in every size, learn more about each one in our CATALOGUE.

For a smooth, reliable and ecofriendly ride, choose bamboo!
Bamboo is not only a beautiful and eco-friendly material, but also a strong and durable one. Bamboo has a tensile strength of 28,000 pounds per square inch, surpassing steel³. It is also 2-3 times harder and stronger than most hardwoods, like oak². Bamboo can withstand high compressive forces and bending stresses, making it ideal for building bicycles that are light, smooth, and resilient.
50K CARBON FIBER
50K CARBON FIBER
The carbon fiber we use to manufacture our bikes is 50k. It is a type of fiber that has 50,000 filaments per strand. It is a high-performance fiber that is used to manufacture lightweight, strong and rigid composite materials. The material offers many advantages, being lighter and stronger than steel, it reduces weight and energy consumption. Being more environmentally friendly than aluminum, it saves energy and natural resources. Being more versatile and adaptable than wood, it allows the creation of unique shapes and designs.
We use Shimano drivetrains, one of the most recognized and prestigious brands in the cycling world. Using Shimano components has many advantages, both for performance and for the safety and comfort of your bike.
Bamboocycles: Best Industrial design Chapter México: winner Diego Cardenas. Every two years di_mad Central de Diseño and the Spanish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation organize a design competition that covers four categories, a panel of experts judge several entries and pick a winner for each country and category.
An event organized by designers for designers awards the best in several categories. In 2010 the Racer bicycle was prized with best transportation design.
Microbac Fatigue Certificate
Bamboocycles has certified its Racer frame according to United States industry standard by Microbac (testing company), running extensive tests consisting of 150 thousand stress cycles.
