PRAXIS FORGING TURNS ALUMINUM INTO DRIVETRAIN GOLD

At Praxis, we’re proud to have made great strides in a short period of time, introducing a full family of innovative and high performance cranksets, chainrings and bottom brackets. Many people ask how our small company achieved this and what sets Praxis products apart. Our success is the result of an obsession to keep pushing the envelope toward the perfect bicycle drivetrain. It takes new thinking, problem solving, extensive engineering, testing and tooling.

Better-shifting, affordable replacement rings

Praxis’ first products were aftermarket replacement chainrings engineered to be as high-quality or even better than original equipment, and more affordable, too. Soon after, we invented our heralded Conversion Bottom Brackets, which became instant best-sellers. Finally there was a surefire way to silence those annoying creaking and clicking press-fit bottom brackets.

Then, responding to widespread consumer and industry demand, we turned our attention to creating a complete lineup of Praxis road and mountain cranksets, the perfect complement to our chainrings and bottom brackets. Following that we introduced a cassette, chainguides and a lineup of carbon and aluminum Praxis rims.

Today, we’re proud to report that Praxis products have been so well-received that you now find Praxis cranksets and rings as original equipment on famous-name bikes, such as Specialized, Giant, Trek and Ibis, to name a few.

From design to manufacturing

We can react quickly and introduce our innovative, high-performance and game-changing components because we invent, design and even manufacture in-house thanks to having Praxis offices both in the USA and Taiwan.    While Praxis employees globe hop between offices as needed to keep production on schedule, designing, prototyping, testing and marketing mainly takes place in the USA. And, the production manufacturing happens in Taichung.

This means that from a new product’s conception by a Praxis engineer, to when it hits the road and trail on your bikes, we’re in control every step of the way. This allows us the flexibility to stop and improve or revise things as often as necessary, which is how we ensure the best, highest quality products.
