The the choice of mountain bike parts, gear and components in South Africa is huge. We can get any MTB, mountain bike parts, gear and components even with only being a few local bike manufacturers. Despite most MTB brands being either American or European, most mountain bike parts and gear, including frames are manufactured in China or Taiwan. These mountain bike brands then supply SA via local importers and distributors. The agents represent the major international mountain bike companies, and provide local knowledge and support for these bike brands. The growth of mountain biking in SA has improved supply and number of locally manufactured mountain bike parts and gear brands in South Africa. The majority manufacture cycle clothing, mtb gear and nutritional supplements. Then there are a few local bike brand manufacturers and mountain bike parts and gear suppliers.
The best source for product information is the actual manufacturers websites. Most of the bike brands have comprehensive websites with detailed specification lists. Many of the mountain bike parts and gear manufacturers also have detailed information and manuals available. If you are looking for specific parts, go to the manufacturers website to find the local distributor. We have also listed the main local distributors and their associated bike brands.
Our MTB reviews cover mountain bike parts and gear reviews on bikes and components including forks, brakes, suspension, wheels, tyres and gears.
