Mongoose builds bikes for riders. It's why their BMX designers aren't wasting time watching reruns on ESPN2 - they're out testing our new designs at the park, on the track and on the hill. It's what drives Mongoose to cook things up like the Front Porch head tube, which lets you fine-tune the handling on our Black Diamond series mountain bikes, or Freedrive suspension technology, which eliminates pedal bob and gives you super-efficient full suspension. Experience that ultimately leads to better bikes for you.
Mongoose bike company manufactures super efficient, premium BMX bikes and mountain bikes and is a brand name of performance bicycles designed, manufactured, and sold by Pacific Cycle, a subsidiary of Dorel Industries. It produces several models of BMX, mountain bikes, and street bicycles, making ample use of light weight alloys and magnesium. They are based in Madison, Wisconsin.
The company was founded in southern California in 1974, with a single product, cast magnesium wheels. It has since expanded to developing a wide range of bikes and performance parts, as well as skateboards, and electric scooters. It is heavily involved in professional bicycle events, and sponsors many riders (such as Eric Rupe) in various competitions, including the X Games and the Dew Action Sports Tour.
Mongoose sells essentially two lines of bicycles. One is a line of discount bikes offered through mass-merchandisers like Wal-Mart, Sears and Kmart. The other line, featured on the website, are higher end models sold through specialty shops.
Mongoose makes awesome BMX bikes, including some retro designs as seen at left. The Mongoose line of mountain bikes is often cutting edge in terms of design.
Mongoose bikes don't just push the limits. They set new ones.
