Who are we ?
Makara cycles was founded in 2018 with one simple goal - to make exhilarating bicycle experiences. To create solutions that would not only move people physically, but also emotionally. Solutions that create movements that can be cherished through the journey of life.
The Makara Name
Makara’s are mythical hybrid-creatures that date back to thousands of years. The hybrid features and the ability to adapt, made it a symbol of strength, making them supreme guardians and choice of the legends.
The idea behind the name Makara came from the desire to create a unique riding experience that fulfils the travel needs of every man. To create bikes that can tackle terrain the world can throw at them. Essentially becoming an extension of the riders personality.
To focus on things that matter the most and strip away the non-essential
To be an important part of a larger journey, and affect how one lives their life
To be attentive towards the planet and its inhabitants in whatever we do.
