Hand made adventure bikes
Windover was co-founded by three friends with extensive design and frame building experience to create bikes we love to ride without compromise; high-performance, ultra-durable adventure and touring bikes with understated looks.
Fancy a test ride?
We have a selection of bikes for display and test rides located at the Cuckmere Cycle Company, East Dean Rd, Exceat, Seaford, BN25 4AD. It's a beautiful location on the East Sussex coast, and ideal to test the on and off road capabilities of our models.
We prototype and build production frames from our Sussex workshop. Our Bostal is made by a partner in Czech Republic.
We love their adventerous spirit and their experiences help us improve our bikes
Jade has established herself on the adventure racing scene over the last couple of years with some great results in events such as the Highland Trail and the Atlas Mountain Race as well as MTB ITTs including the Lakeland 200. We were seriously impressed with what she had achieved, particularly hearing stories of riding her gravel bike on incredibly challenging terrain and pushing herself to the limit in extreme conditions, so approached her to see if she was interested in riding one of our bikes.
Luckily, she said yes, and earlier this year we supplied Jade with a Bostal frameset in her chosen colour, which certainly stands out from our usual 'under the radar' schemes.
Here are Jade's thoughts on the bike:
"The Bostal is the perfect gravel bike for the riding I do, with big enough tyre clearance to tackle most terrain, whilst still handling well on the road. I'm looking forward to racing Dales Divide and riding across Spain, Iceland and Norway on it this year and really putting it to the test. I also love the brand ethos, with UK manufacturing at their heart and a background in adventure riding and framebuilding"
"I’m delighted to be working with Windover and have the opportunity to become a brand ambassador. It’s a company I feel really shares my ethos and passion for cycling and adventure, as well as never setting for good enough. After building my bike up and taking it on its maiden voyage I feel like me and it are now one, it slightly blew my mind how much it eats up the vibrations yet still rips when the time comes to get on the pedals. It’s a beast!
This year is pretty new from me, transitioning from a predominantly road racing focus in 2022 to an all ultra/ gravel racing calendar in 2023. This challenge is something I’m super excited for and the races I’m participating in will take me far and wide. My main aims will be the Highland Trail 550, Migration gravel race and Evolution gravel race.
Beyond racing my real love is to explore. I love to see where my bike can take me and can’t avoid following every little trail. Every ride is an adventure and this is something I really treasure. From last year to the present my passion for cycling has been reignited. Come rain or shine the bike is where I want to be!"
Thanks Bryn - and we're delighted to have you on board!
