Many will say, “Racing is Life”, and every one of us was born to win. The simple fact that you exist means you have already won the first and most important race of all. Your first rush was moments from birth, when that all important spank on the backside kick-started your system and made you an adrenaline junkie for life. This is why we chose to name our company SPANK Industries. SPANK aims to breathe new life into your cycling experience and trigger that same rush every time you ride your bike!
The brand started as the brainchild of South African designer/manufacturer Gavin Michael Vos, and German distributor Sven Mack. Their goals were to create the perfect symbiosis of weight optimization, enhanced performance and cutting edge style while maintaining affordability. Currently, SPANK is one of a few brands in the world that employs in-house design, development, testing and production for our complete line of unique and exclusive components.
