From plug-in holder to firmly screwed mount, from pocket to cover – the cell phone is increasingly attached to the handlebar and we have the solution. Thanks to the powerful powerbank, the COM/UNIT, smartphones can be charged at the same time.
MonkeyLink: One connection – many possibilities. The days are gone when plug-in light and fenders had to be attached laboriously. Magnetically connected to the BlueDock and fixed via the intuitive lock.
More precise than ever and even available as real-time measurement at the valve: With the right air pressure your ride becomes more comfortable and safe, creeping flat tyres can also be detected early. As a separate measuring device or as a sensor installed on the bike, the air check is done quickly before or during the tour.
SKS mudguards: Clean men for the bike. Reliable, variable and with practical mounting options: our fenders offer excellent protection against dirt and splash water.
Minimalistic tools with maximum effect. The sophisticated, compact minitools combine the most important tool functions, so that quickly adjustments of the bike or minor repairs can be done easily during the ride.
Robust space-saving wonders. Rain, splashing water and dirt drip off the water-repellent textile. Reflective elements and a loop for flashing lights provide more safety in the dark. With velcrostraps or click attachment, the bags can be easily attached to the bike. New in the product portfolio: Bikepacking bags for explorers or commuters.
With our range of water bottles and bottle cages, we show once again what can be created from plastic. In addition to practical details, such as an integrated bike lock, the bottle holders guarantee a secure hold, even in rough terrain.
The high-quality material combination of plastic and aluminium guarantees an excellent protection of the chain. Suitable for hub or derailleur gears, the chain guards can be mounted to any bike in no time.
Customers become fans – not only our employees wear their passion for the bike and the attachment to SKS GERMANY during their rides, but also more and more customers become true fans. The collection of 2021 appears in a new design.
In addition to cleaner, lubricant spray, long-term preservative and sealing milk, our cleaning and care range also includes a newly developed high-performance chain oil with a tried and tested applicator.
