Design. Manufacture. Ride.

As a young adult, Gavin Michael Vos loved mountain biking and extreme sports, and became an earlier pioneer in his home country of South Africa. After building up the community there, creating the first mountain biking club in South Africa, he began to import bike parts and components to help out the growing number of new bikers. But far too often the imported parts were overly expensive while being poor quality, so Gavin decided to move to Taiwan to pursue a budding interest in design and manufacturing. After mastering these skills, Gavin teamed up with German distributor Sven Mack. Their goal was to create the perfect symbiosis of weight optimization, enhanced performance, and cutting-edge style. And they wanted to do it all at affordable prices.

For the last 20 years, that is exactly what they have been achieving. Spank components are the best of the best, and their quality controls are top notch. We carry a wide range of Spank products including bike seats, handlebars, bike pedals, bike grips, bike split stems, bike rims, and more. If you're passionate about bikes and want to upgrade your components to lighter and stronger versions, look no further than Spank.

At, we love Spank parts and they are one of our go-to brands in our local Outland Bike shop. The only tough part about Spank is keeping them in stock! Give Spank a try.

 Questions & Tips

Q: What Sustainability Initiatives Has Spank Man?


SPANK INDUSTRIES shotpeen finishes all our products. This hammering not only improves fatigue life, it also completely negates the harmful microscopic waste particles associated with sandblast and polish.


The closed cell, complex foam core in our Vibrocore handlebars is toxin free and injected mechanically, which reduces the emission of greenhouse gases.  It is also biodegradeable.


The fluid used for cooling in SPANK INDUSTRIES pedal CNC process is recycled almost infinitely during the production cycle.  Our state-of-the-art Japanese CNC machines are also the most energy efficient models available anywhere globally.


Our packaging is minimal, because we figured you would enjoy one more tree on the trails and a bit less landfill in the dumps!  It is made from unbleached, recycled pulp and is 100% biodegradable. Minimal printing on the packaging reduces water and energy consumption during processing.


Earthball Riders Foundation was initiated in 2016 to encourage responsible production and to challenge manufacturing practices in the bicycle industry.

The Earthball Riders Foundation facilitates dialogue and the sharing of information towards educating consumers and industry on responsible manufacturing and production practice.

Q: Why Does Spank Not Use Carbon FIber?



As a norm, under certain high impact, carbon fiber breaks and leads to catastrophic failure.  Aluminium will give warning by bending or buckling.


The control over alloy material integrity and manufacturing process exceeds the QC pitfalls of carbon fiber.


We say NO to the insane power consumption required to produce carbon fiber and we say NO to the toxic emissions that workers and local communities are exposed to around carbon fiber manufacturing facilities.


There are no doubt good things to say about carbon fiber. We don't disagree. It's just that we perceive those few good things to be relevant and appropriate to a very small percentage of perhaps the world's top international or world championship competition athletes. We really don't agree that the cycling mass market has a need for carbon fiber - not when you weigh up the negatives, and certainly not at the crazy price tag carbon fiber commands. In short, we value the sustainability, safety and responsible approach that alloy affords us, and the global cycling community. Still convinced carbon fiber is king? Take a look at some of the SPANK INDUSTRIES technologies that should have you second guessing your perception of carbon fiber...
