Founded in Marin County, California in 1982, fueled by the need to create durable and reliable mountain bike-specific equipment.

Today WTB is a global enterprise; the innovative components are used for trail riding, transportation, recreation and elite racing across the globe. After 30 years things have changed a bit at WTB and the components made have evolved to meet the needs of today’s riders, racers, and commuters.
