KNAAP founders Robin Cats and Michael Fiering met during their time working in the E-scooter sector. Both entrepreneurial and creative, a plan was soon forged that would change the age-old street image of classic bicycles in Amsterdam. Although the Dutch are well known for their bike culture; Functionality and comfort seemed to rule the streets. Somehow curb appeal had never truly been part of the equation.

That changed in 2019 when Cats and Fiering launched KNAAP bikes. Manifesting their ethos of creating a brand based on sustainability, style and substance. Born from their ambition to combine the leading features of an e-scooter with that of the traditional e-bike.

Today KNAAP bikes are beating streets all over the world, the team is gearing up and excited about the road ahead.
