The plastic bicycle from mtrl

With the igus:bike platform, we make bicycle and component manufacturers the offer to advance modern mobility together with us. One of these suppliers, with whom we work closely, is the Dutch company mtrl. Within the scope of an investment by igus and beyond that in close partnership, we combine experience and forces to demonstrate the infinite possibilities of plastics in the bicycle industry and to realize new visions.

Interested manufacturers can use the platform to get an initial overview of what is already available and to benefit from the know-how already built up. It also allows people to network with each other. Our vision is to provide a point of contact that effectively helps manufacturers.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions


We expect the weight to be around 17 kg. Please keep in mind that the bike will be an urban bike. It will offer an alternative to urban mobility, it is in no way meant to replace mountain bikes or road bikes.


No- not yet. The first bike will not be sold as an e-bike. We are also working on an e-version. However, it is still uncertain when this will come on the market.


A version made of new plastics (upcyclable version) will cost about 1.200€. Once the recycled version is available, it will cost 1.400€.


This is due to the additional testing efforts that must be performed to ensure the safety and stability of the wheel. Recycled plastics do not always have constant material properties, this must be studied and guaranteed.


The first bicycle based on this concept is distributed by our partners at mtrl.
