Therefore Batavus

Cycling is something you do together. Your first steps without training wheels. Then all by yourself at school and later with a boyfriend or girlfriend on the back of your bicycle. On the way to your new job or during a holiday down the hills at home and abroad. With your child in front securely to take long trips together. You bike grows with you during all stages of your life. Batavus is a family brand and therefore grows with you. Whatever it is that you value on: your bicycle must match your lifestyle. Batavus always keeps this mind since 1904.

Safe and secure

For over a century we make bicycles from our factory in Heerenveen. Sturdy, safe and modern quality bicycles with which you can cycle on with a carefree mind. Our bikes are all designed with the same love and attention and assembled by skilled professionals. We look critically at ourselves and ask external experts for feedback. So we can continuously deliver the highest possible quality. And before the bicycles go into production, they are thoroughly tested in our designated test centre.

All our frames are made according to the highest standards and are tested extensively. Almost every Batavus has a solid lock, powerful reflectors and a reliable hub dynamo. So you have consistent power supply for the lighting of your bike. By using the best materials we do everything to provide you a safe, reliable and solid quality bike. It is important that you can rely on your bike.
