Just like Kaptein Tweewielers, the brands we carry can be proud of their long history. Below the different brands introduce themselves briefly. We would like to welcome you to our store for more information about these products!
Specialized has been active in the bicycle industry since 1974. It is the brand with the greatest innovative power and makes high-quality sporty bicycles. That is why we have been working with Specialized for more than 20 years. We have built up very good relations with this brand. Their service and quality standards are super high. The designs and paintwork are also of exceptional quality. The professional teams that run Specialized: Bora-Hansgrohe and Deceuninck-Quick Step.
Our Italian pearl Bianchi has already been experienced in building bicycles since 1885. The colour celeste is their trademark and there are various stories about how this colour originated. The best story is that the founder Edoardo Bianchi made a bicycle for the Italian queen that matched the colour of her eyes! Anyway, these are quality bikes with which our Dutch team Jumbo Visma are achieving great successes.
Kona is a Canadian brand we have a lot of love for. They are a smaller brand than Specialized and Bianchi but they are very progressive with their bikes. They were among the first brands to market a gravel road bike. They are a nice addition to our selection because of their unique bikes.
Agu stands for Alkmaarse Groothandel Unie (Alkmaar Wholesale Union). It’s a Dutch company that started up in rain gear but they have already made it to the professional pack twice until now. First with Panasonic in 1984 and this year with Jumbo Visma. Their clothing has a very good price-quality ratio!
Etxeondo (pronounce etsjondo) is a clothing brand from the Basque Provinces. A real family business producing everything in their own factory in Spain. Always present in the professional pack with among others Sunweb and now CCC. Especially loved for their excellent padding quality.
