About woom

woom is an international manufacturer of bikes for children and teenagers with its headquarters in Klosterneuburg, just outside of Vienna. The Austria-based company was founded in 2013 by two bike-loving fathers, Christian Bezdeka and Marcus Ihlenfeld, in a garage in Vienna. After searching the market in vain for suitable bikes for their own children, they decided to develop and build their own. Focusing on a low weight, timeless designs, high-quality components and child-specific geometry, woom bikes are setting new standards for premium children's bikes. In just a few years, woom went from a little-known brand to the market leader in Austria. Today, woom is known across the world. In more than 30 countries – including the USA – you'll see kids and teens riding woom bikes.
