e*thirteen is a small rider-owned company dedicated to improving the riding experience for anyone on a bike. The common thread among all of us at e*thirteen is our passion for riding and creating great products that solve problems. We are proud of our team and the work we do, so we invite you to get to know us through a series of videos from each place e*thirteen calls home. Taiwan, Bavaria, California and British Columbia.

"We remain dedicated to each cycling community on the West Coast that we're lucky enough to be a part of. We love riding in all kinds of dirt from California's Central Coast all the way up to BC. Supporting our patrons in these places and keeping them riding and happy on their bikes is our passion and priority." - Connor Bondlow, Director of Marketing & Design

INSIDE e*thirteen : GERMANY

This episode brings you to our European office in Germany, home to our sales and support team for the UK and European markets . Our common goal, no matter if you are a consumer, dealer, distributor or bicycle brand, is to offer the best and fastest possible service to keep you rolling.

“The European Office of e*thirteen is based in Traunstein, Germany. We are proud of being part of e*thirteen since 2012. We all ride our bikes frequently (and break stuff from time to time), so we understand how painful the time off the bike can be. This said we do what we can to get any e*thirteen rider - no matter if World Cup Racer or Weekend Warrior - back onto their bikes as straightforward as possible, without the need to overcome unnecessary obstacles." - Dennis Mankel, Head of European Sales


Being so close to our suppliers in Taichung gives us the capability to manage quality and understand the processes to help us come up with new ideas to solve the issues we see out on the trail. Welcome to our team in Taiwan and the final episode of this series.

“The team in Taiwan is fundamental for e*thirteen. Starting from manufacturing engineering all the way to managing supply relationships, our Taiwan squad works behind the scenes to get more people on bikes and keep them riding. Since the Taichung office is just a five minute pedal from the burgeoning local trails, you'll often find them out for lunch or post-work rides. It's not just ‘Made in Taiwan’, it's Ridden in Taiwan.” - Joel Peters, CEO



At 1290 grams, XCX Carbon wheels are the ultimate no-holds-barred gravel wheel. Built using the same methods and knowhow as our World Cup Downhill Series winning LG1 rims. The 320g rim spins up fast with its aerodynamic profile, but is still comfortable through the rough stuff.
