Santos makes mountain bikes with a typical Dutch character
Such as this SCC03 with Rohloff gear hub and belt drive. In stylish Grass Green with matching colour front fork.
Dutch design and engineering
Craftsmanship, the successful Santos geometry and the best aluminium. The SCC03, the aluminium mountain bike with the most wins in the Netherlands. Top rankings in international competitions, European Championships, World Cup and Olympic games - and we are proud of it.
The geometry of Santos mountain bikes is suited extremely well to Dutch landscapes. The bikes are fast, steering is direct, and the ride is superbly comfortable. Because the inbuilt height of the front fork in the versions with as well as without suspension are adjustable, the frame geometry does not change when you choose a fixed front fork.
We are also the only place you can get the bike fitted with the super light Ritchey WCS mountain bike front fork (500 grams!). Given that we are a Dutch brand, we are naturally specialized in Dutch mountain bikes; light, fast and low maintenance.
(That's why we were the test winner of the FIETS test for Winter Bikes 2008-2009)

Santos frame design, made by hand
Designed in The Netherlands, tested in The Netherlands and specially built for you in The Netherlands. As with all Santos bikes, the frames of the mountain bikes are handmade to our specifications using high quality aluminium. All our frames undergo a special heat treatment after welding to ensure that the frame is free of tension and even stronger.
The patented Santos XC rear fork gives you more room for mud and more room for wide tires. A typical Santos invention that will only be found on Santos mountain bikes.
Every mountain bike frame and our own fixed mountain bike front forks come with a 5 year full warranty - even with competition use (logical for us, but not for many other brands as you will notice if you read through their warranties as I sometimes do).
