A Little About Us

The idea of making performance bicycles was triggered as elite Indian mountain bikers required high performance machines which were unavailable in India around early 2000.

Psynyde began by manufacturing custom components for the limited range of bicycles offered in the country. Using this knowledge of design and manufacturing processes, Psynyde evolved to making custom frames.Psynyde was built on close collaboration between professional mountain bikers and bicycle designers. Over the years, our association with several international riders along with top Indian athletes has helped us develop design concepts.

With our 15+ years of knowhow of the Indian cycling industry, we introduced Psynyde into the mainstream market in 2016. We believe the output of rider centric designs is essential to improve rider-machine compatibility. We at Psynyde Bikes look forward to the enhancing your cycling experience, one pedal stroke at a time!
