The Gezel (old Dutch for journeyman or companion) is designed to be the ultimate all weather mile eater.
- Fully customisable and made-to-order
- Disc, cantilever option available

The inspiration came from serious racers looking for a bike that could be ridden throughout the year but offering the fit and character of their race bikes.
Tested on the Flandrien cobbles, Gezel has the versatility and comfort to be more than capable across several disciplines and delivers the racy feel that is central to the Engineered DNA.
Gezel could be called an “adventure bike”, but it is equally suitable as a Sunday Best machine capable of tackling any sportive you can throw at it from Etape to Roubaix.
“You feel you can really put the hammer down on the better surfaced sections, while having the command you need when things get bumpy.” Read the full review.

A Completely Customisable Platform
To help meet your individual requirements, riding style and aesthetic taste, each Gezel frame set can offer:
- a vast array of possibilities for customisation with the integrity of our rigorous engineering, testing and optimisation processes.
- custom fit and geometry (based on your bike fit data), as well as bespoke optimisation of tube sets.
- completely customisable paint and finishing – we’ll work with you to realise your vision and create something extra special – anywhere from personal colours to a bespoke graphics scheme.
- full builds exactly as you want it – we can recommend group sets and finishing kit options or work with you to select components to suit you.
We are extremely proud of our rigorous engineering approach and the integrity of our bicycles. Our unique discipline specific platform approach enables us to provide this high level of engineering integrity in a customisable format which allows a high degree of personalisation.
Therefore the Gezel has been designed according to the appropriate European standard (ISO4210) and tested beyond its requirements. The end result is a custom, hand built bicycle that you can have complete confidence in.
We can build your Gezel precisely how you want it. We can suggest a package based on your requirements or, with a myriad of groupset, wheels and finishing kit options, build exactly as you want it.
