A little about us..

Why Montu?

 

We created Montu to bring some soul into the world of bicycles and technical endurance cycling apparel. We make products that reflect who we are and what we want: to enjoy the freedom of cycling and to celebrate the growing geographical and cultural diversity of endurance sports. Montu is a Canadian company with roots in Egypt. Our design philosophy showcases elements that define and connect the different cultural and historical influences that built it. ‘Montu’ is an ancient Egyptian God signifying strength, courage and victory.

 

We are a small yet diverse team of endurance sports enthusiasts with experience in the various disciplines of the sports of cycling & running. We approach product development with a keen eye of what we would like to use and wear. While we currently focus on bikes and cycling apparel, we intend to expand to running apparel in the near future.

 

Our products strike an important balance: that between aesthetics and functional features. The Ancient Egyptians believed that everything had a unique character known as “Ba“. All our products are developed with the central principle of building a unique “Ba” into the final design, balancing elements of form and function that makes for gear guaranteed to please, whether you’re out for a spin on your local roads or trails, on an epic bikepacking trip, a local club ride or gearing up for a grueling ultra-endurance event.

Who we are

We are a very small and passionate team. When we're not working on up the next piece of great cycling or running gear, we’re probably out on our bikes or going for a trail run. We come from diverse cultural backgrounds and have been fortunate to ride and run in many parts of the world. We aim to make Montu's gear reflect this wonderful diversity of backgrounds and experiences, in both form and function.
