PYGA is a small South African bike company who make bikes we want to ride. Founded by Patrick Morewood - founder of MOREWOOD BIKES, a world renowned gravity bike brand of the early 2000’s. Pat moved from Morewood in 2010 and started PYGA INDUSTRIES with the goal to design simple, clean cut bikes without fancy acronyms, gadgets or unnecessary standards.
They decided early on that we wanted bikes that were competitive on the racetrack while still being super-fun to bomb around on our local trails. Our suspension bikes are designed to pedal efficiently, be active, supple and integrate the proven technology that makes modern bikes amazing to ride. We’ve kept our geometries a little more relaxed than most out there, so they retain a character of fun.
PYGA Mountainbikes is now a household name in the mountain biking community of South Africa, well known for our build quality, suspension design and progressive geometry. We design and engineer the bikes we like to ride, as do our customers, brand ambassadors and athletes. Making bikes that put smiles on faces, for trails and for races - we’re proud to ride a little different.
PYGA’s owners Pat Morewood (design and engineering), Oliver Burnett (marketing all round fun loving adventurer), Richard Crouse (Serial Entrepreneur and lover of adventure based lifestyle) and Karen Morewood (finance and admin) are at the forefront of the business and are all enthusiastic bikers.
