Built for Life
Santos is an independent Dutch bicycle brand with a big passion for cycling, a great love for quality and an innovative Research and Development department. It was founded in 1997 by bicycle enthusiast Robbert Rutgrink.
Our aim is to build the best possible bike for every cyclist. The right frame for your posture, the best transmission for your requirements and the option to customize all bicycle parts according to your taste.
Every Santos contains Santos Only parts, specially designed by us for the ultimate cycling experience. Sometimes prominent, sometimes barely visible. But always there to enhance the versatility, modularity and durability of your bike.
All Santos bicycles are custombuilt at our factory just outside Amsterdam and can be shipped worldwide.
