BOGBI was born as an idea in Bogotá Colombia; two fathers; Eduardo from Colombia and Sigurd from Norway wanted to solve their problems of mobility across the city.
From that moment and for nearly three years they have been working to set up the production line for one of the world’s best cargo bikes. With Colombian passion, certified skills and Norwegian design, they make Bogbi, a perfect vehicle to move around your area of influence without the need of a car.
Imagine a city where the streets are closed for cars and open for bicycles. Welcome to Bogotá, the bicycle capital of Latin America. The only city in the word that close every Sunday main avenues to cars and open it for bicycles. More than 1,5 millions inhabitants use the ciclovía every Sunday to ride around the city. Bogotá has more that 500 kilometres of exclusive bike lanes across the whole city, more that 900.000 trips in bicycle take place every day… This reasons together with their own establishment in Bogotá almost four years ago played in favour of settle down their factory in Bogotá, Colombia.
The Bogbi cargo bike is one of the most compact on the market, and still has a large cargo capacity. It can easily fit two kids and your everyday cargo. “We decided to use wire steering so the bike can turn into sharp corners and combat traffic with ease”, says the co owner and head of design & production Johannes Hegdahl, who has spent two years designing and setting up the production line in Bogotá. Other features like the embracing frame, adjustable dropouts, the bridge that holds the steering unit, the hammocks child seat and some others key features will ensure an optimal experience riding a Bogbi.
Bogbi stands for more of than bicycles. They have a strong mission to contribute to the development of greener cities and help Colombian society to grow in a peaceful and sustainable way. As Colombia is moving towards a future in peace after almost 6 decades of civil war in parts of the country, Bogbi wanted to contribute to the future in Colombia by offering fair employment conditions and vocational training, integrating the production with world class training in bike production as part of their operation.
At Bogbi they will continue working, moving forward and having fun! A smooth ride for everyone – greener cities, stable jobs for young Colombians and cycling made affordable for whole families globally.
