Born in New Zealand, the result of a group of dedicated individuals whose creative minds and passion for cycling, merged with technology and ingenuity to form a manufacturer of innovative wheels, frames and components. Grammo’s range of products are the result of 4 cyclists whose collective knowledge and experience covers Olympic Time Trial, Competitive Road and Triathlon, industry leading research and development and the finishing touch of eye catching style.
Understanding the need for competitive edge is one thing, creating products to deliver that promise is another.
For the last seven years Grammo has gradually turned that concept into a reality that includes wholly owned and developed products that will deliver race advantage across the key areas of weight, performance, and reliability.
In 2006 Grammo introduced the Viper range of wheels and components to satisfy rider’s needs for better options on keenly priced performance carbon wheels and accessories. The line was well received with distribution going to a broad international market. There was no resting on the laurels of that initial success as Grammo followed with the announcement at Interbike 2007 of the ground breaking Factor wheels, a line of sophisticated carbon race wheels designed to combine the benefits of CFD design and real time wind tunnel testing with a deep understanding of actual versus virtual conditions.
The wheel line has broadened to include Track, entry and premium level clincher, and a line of cyclocross specific wheels that again broke with the norm of what was currently available.
Development continued with the F5:2 and the F8:2 carbon wheels, aimed specifically at the race market that brought a new level of notoriety and experience to Grammo as a brand.
With wheels covered, the combined knowledge of racing situations and of manufacturing and production techniques was focused into Carbon frames. Grammo researched and designed a proprietary geometry standard where emphasis is on Competitive advantage, Comfort (fit), and Carbon technology, the C3 Design. Critiqued until objectives were met and instituted that design into the C3 road frame.
In 2011 a whole host of new developments and opportunities were launched.
Based on three new rim designs the 540, 580 and 840 a new range of carbon race wheels were launched. These have been long in development and heavily tested in both virtual and real environments in order to ensure that the goals set at the beginning of the project were clearly met or exceeded.
A new line of frames based on the proprietary C3 concept will now be rolled out into the new Toa 29 mountain hard tail, and the new Paru cyclocross frame. The Toa and Paru frames are a result of a clear focus on areas where knowledge and experience gained in the core market can be transferred to achieve the same balance of cost, performance and innovation.
For 2013 the launch of a new 29er suspension frame, 650b hardtail, and range of MTB wheels continued proof of Grammo’s demand for performance gain through technology across all its products in order to continue growth and development.
