Spawn Cycles is all about building the world's best kids' bikes!
Spawn Cycles is an original manufacturer of lightweight, high-performance kids' bikes. We are based in the beautiful Squamish, BC, Canada in the heart of the world-famous Sea to Sky corridor between the mountain biking meccas of Vancouver’s North Shore and Whistler.
In 2011, we began searching for a lightweight first pedal bike for our then 2-year-old son. What we found was disappointing - nothing seemed to have changed in kids' bikes in decades. They were still the poor quality, heavy monstrosities that existed in the 1980s when the founder, Max, was first learning to ride freestyle BMX.
Armed with the knowledge that better bikes were needed and possible, we set out to change the kids' bikes industry and launched Spawn Cycles.
Spawn’s initial models included a 12” balance bike, and 14” and 16” pedal bikes. As a brand, we have consistently focused on innovation in an effort to improve and expand our product offering over time.
Now over a decade into this journey, Spawn Cycles has dozens of options for young riders ranging from balance bikes to cross country trail bikes, purpose-built dirt-jumpers and even adjustable geometry full-suspension models.
In order to expand our capabilities as a brand, we have also launched a separate component line along the way. Brood Bike Co. was born in 2015 to fill the void in the market for high-quality, kid-specific bike components, as what WE needed could not be found in the sprawling catalogues of conventional and oftentimes sub-par components used by everyone else.
We have travelled the world as a sponsor of youth-focused MTB events and formed a team of ambassadors consisting of some of the world's top emerging young riders many of whom have since moved on to becoming MTB pros!
Spawn Cycles currently handles its own direct-to-consumer sales efforts and distribution in Canada, the United States, Europe and Mexico. We plan to launch dedicated distribution channels in Australia, New Zealand and Asia in the near future.
