Two new Belgian police forces on Santos Bike Patrol bikes
January 2021 - Santos Bikes has now also won the tender from both Ghent and Antwerp for their Bike Patrol bikes. The first series has just been taken into production in the Santos factory in Nieuw-Vennep. Santos will be providing all maintenance as well.
Unique to this tender is its availability under the same conditions to other Belgian police forces. They no longer have to tender themselves but can contact Santos Bikes directly.
The new bicycles are ideal for the rough and intensive use by police bikers. They feature a 14-speed closed gear hub combined with a low maintenance belt drive. This is combined with powerful disc brakes and 27.5 “ wheels for optimal maneuverability and comfort.
Santos has been developing custom Bike Patrol bicycles for the Dutch police, municipalities and emergency services for more than 15 years now. The bicycles have also become a successful export product.
