Propain Bikes

Propain Mountain Bikes

Propain was imagined in 2006 by Robert Krauss,

an Engineer who was working for a helicopter manufacturer at the time whilst racing downhill on the side. He set about on the quest to design the best linkage system for a Downhill bike. He called this Pro10 because it had to fulfill the 10 points he believed would make a perfect system; which included pedaling neutrality, high sensitivity, low center of mass and good weight distribution between the wheels. Ever since, the Pro10 system has been at the heart of Propain and the reason for their unique Frame design. In the inception, Propain was a solely Downhill oriented brand, but six years ago they diversified their portfolio into the Enduro market with the addition of the Tyee, which has seen a few iterations including a very recent update to bring it up to 2020 standards.
