Pole Bicycles is a Finnish high end bicycle company. ENVIRONMENT AVOIDING UNNECESSARY HARM Pole is a nordic brand and we have scandinavian values. Scandinavians respect nature, equality and fair business. We are honest and sincere. In design we value functionality and simplicity. Sometimes less can be more. Our products are ready when there is nothing to take away. FAIR TRADE Our design is in Finland and the production is in Taiwan. We have visited all the factories we use for our frame building and talked with the people who work there. It is important to us that we know the origins of our components. MOTTO “QUALITY MEANS FUNCTIONALITY”. We think that the product is ready when there isn’t anything to take away, quality is not made by chasing fashion and adding more stuff. We want to break the rules of making products, rather than hiring more engineers, we are keen to hire creative people like musicians. With creative people we can create something different from mainstream. It is most important that designers, racers and average riders are involved in the design process. This is the receipt for uniqueness. PASSION LEO RACES THE BIKES WHICH HE DESIGNS Some people have been asking why Leo competes himself. The main reason is simple: it’s fun. Secondly as the inventor of PoleLink and the designer of the bikes, brand and leading the marketing, racing himself is just the best way to demonstrate that Pole is really a brand that is from rider to riders. PATRIC’S DREAM IS TO HAVE A “SURF SHOP” When Leo planted the idea of own company in Patric’s mind he didn’t hesitate too long. Patric resigned from his career and began his new career as an entrepreneur. Patric’s dream is to create a job or a career where he’s able to provide enjoyable “surf shop” kind of feeling to his employees and of course for himself, and now as an CEO of Pole Bicycle Company he might be able to create just that.
