Biomega is a Copenhagen-based, Danish brand of designer bicycles. It is known for engaging international designers from outside the bicycle industry—including Marc Newson, Ross Lovegrove[1] and Karim Rashid— in designing its products.[2] In addition to producing bikes under its own name, Falcon produces bicycles under a joined brand with Puma AG.

Biomega bicycles are represented in the design collections of both MOMA, SFMOMA and the Sir Terrence Conran Foundation Collection.[3]

History[edit]

Biomega was established in 1998 by former university classmates Jens Martin Skibsted and Elias Grove Nielsen.[2]

Technology[edit]

Biomega makes both shaft-driven bicycles and bamboo bicycles.
