KETTLER Alu-Rad has represented quality made in Germany as a pioneer of light-weight bicycle construction since 1978. We developed and installed the first aluminium bike ever.
A lot has happened since: Aluminium has revolutionised the bicycle market as a material, our bikes optimally adjust to their riders thanks to innovative technology today, and electrical engineering has created a new dimension of bicycle mobility with the e-bike.
One thing has never changed, however, and we are quite proud of this:
Every KETTLER alu bicycle is designed, installed, painted, technically accepted and quality-inspected to the highest precision by our employees in our factory in Saarland, just as it was more than 30 years ago.
Only this way can we guarantee that you will get a bike that is just perfect for you. This is what we aim for: We make bikes that can be adjusted ergonomically to give you an optimised cycling experience, no matter your age, size and needs. We know what you need, because we listen and because we believe that only this will enable us to make bikes that move generations.
This is what KETTLER traditionally does: since its first own transport with pedals, the KETTCAR. Like the iconic pedalled racing car – continually developed further technically – has been passed on by one generation to the next, our employees also pass on their positions to the next generation. Our installer's son heads e-bike assembly today, for example. Our quality tester has taken over her mother's work and participates in regular further training on the latest quality and safety provisions.
It is very important to us that developments continue in spite of all tradition. Only this enables us to develop bikes that are "just perfect" for future generations as well.
