THE MODERN

 

 

  In the tradition of  Skeppshult,  state of the art    components have been combined with sleek design inspiration and effective industrial engineering to bring you the Z Bike.  The architectural frame, designed by industrial designer Björn Dahlström makes the Z Bike the absolute pinnacle in design driven cycling.  The sleek symmetry of its silver frame makes it comfortable and as pleasing to the eye as a modern sculpture.  A matte powder coat paint finish emits understated elegance.  Features like a hand brake, bell, integrated locking system are added and provide the exceptional harmony of elegance and utility.

                                   Equipped with a Shimano® gear system the Z bike gets you to your destination with ease.  The Nexus internally geared hub is engineered with a heavy duty construction that assures a long life of trouble free riding.  The drum coaster brake system requires no cable, just back pedal to brake.  In addition, the Z Bike has a Shimano® brake lever offering a hand brake option as well.  A shift modulator provides smooth shifting action.  A Look-in Selle Royale® saddle delivers comfort and high performance. 

 

 

 

THE CLASSIC

 

A FINE TRADITION

Skeppshult has been producing classic bicycles in Sweden for nearly 100 years.  It all began at the beginning of the 20th century in the repair shop of the Samuelsson family farm.  Albert, the oldest son began building and selling bicycles.  These bicycles were the forerunner of what we recognize today as the commuter bicycle with durable tires, fenders,  chain guard and a footbrake.

Thirty years later, in the 1940's the younger brother Arvid took over and with his keen business skills grew the business and moved it to its own location on Storgatan 78 where it still operates today.  Skeppshult, a name taken from the town where the bicycles are produced, has held on to this tradition of producing fine quality well designed classic and comfort bicycles. 

The company has been awarded a royal warrant, which is a distinction awarded by the King of Sweden  to those companies that embody the standard of superior quality and workmanship associated with fine Swedish design.  Some other companies who share this distinction are SAAB,  Kosta  Boda, and Brio to name a few. 

Skeppshult has entered the US market in hopes of encouraging more Americans to ride a bike.  "We thought that with this option, perhaps more Americans would enjoy the ride."
