"if it's not fun working for FUNN, we might as well close the company"
That has been the mantra of FUNN from the early days, and we still live by it today.
Funn has been in business since 1997. Over the last 20 years, we have built our brand on a solid foundation of racing legacy and consistently offering great value, race proven mountain bike components.
We have been involved with the Gravity scene since the establishment of FUNN. Endorsement projects with top tier partners such as Monster Energy/Ironhorse, Team G-Cross Honda and Trek World Racing Team, validates our ability and heritage as a serious MTB component player, one that has not been washed out by the ever changing trends and markets.
Notable moments for FUNN include the 2008 DH World Cup at Val Di Sole when Sam Hill, then riding on our products coming in 3rd. More recently, Phil Atwil of the Propane Team finished 9th at Vallnord Andorra and hitting Podium in Lenzerheide in 5th position. Our current partnership with the FS Patrol FUNN team is also yielding positive results and gaining status in the field.
Today our products are less defined by racing category; our continuous involvements in the DH World Cup circuit, combined with new design and production methods, have allowed much wider, cross disciplinary applications. As an example our new KINGPIN handlebars are light and strong enough for both DH and Enduro racing, and this evolutionary process is extending across our full product range
What keeps us going? In the end, it all comes back to the pleasures of riding, the sheer entertainment of ripping berms, the delight of air time, the giddies of zero G, the joy of surviving a fast sketchy section……… to put simply, it’s all about FUNN.
Coming up with a new design is always a big challenge. Our team work hard and ride hard together to develop products that we can all enjoy. We use 3D software and printing applications to help us model and shape products, optimize engineering details and stream line manufacturing process.
We use the most optimized, trusted and stable production methods for all of our products. From full CNC machining for our stems, chain-rings and pedals, to advanced butting and hydroforming production for our handlebars, matching production methods at every step of the way with other top-tier component brands around the world.
06 Product validation
We design and make all FUNN components with view to over engineer on strength, and keep them light enough for competition. Each production batch is tested to validate and proof our design and consistency in manufacturing, ensuring the highest safety standard and finish to our products.
