Velo City: Bicycle Culture and City Life

Standert is a German urban bicycle brand that was founded in 2012 by Max and Anna von Senger. The company is based in Berlin and specializes in the design and manufacture of high-quality road, gravel, commuter and track bikes.

Standert’s philosophy is based on creating bicycles that are both functional and stylish — machines that are not only great to ride but also look great. The focus is on clean lines, simple designs, and attention to detail.

The first model was called Triebwerk, and was a steel road bike. Today the range is mostly off-the-shelf and consists of seven different models — with subcategories distinguishing rim versus disc variants, as well as the Race Series (RS) models.

The bikes are designed in Berlin, but most of the frames are hand made by an Italian frame builder on the southern edge of the Alps. The frames are then shipped back to Germany and built up in the Berlin workshop.
