Your dream bike through individual configuration
Cresta was the first Swiss manufacturer to introduce an online tool that enables the uncomplicated configuration of your personal dream bike in real time.
To this day, you can set the frame shape, color, technical equipment and accessories in the Cresta configurator and in this way find exactly the bike that perfectly suits you and your requirements. Try it out, whether at home on the couch or with your bike dealer.
A piece of Swiss cycling history
The origins of Cresta lie in a small bike shop that opened its doors in St. Gallen in 1898. The owner: Matthias Komenda, founder of the traditional Swiss company Komenda AG. Komenda is home to the oldest family-owned Swiss bicycle factory that still exists today, and all of the Cresta are still made today. The Alpa Velomanufaktur is located in Sirnach in Thurgau. Only a few of the formerly large and well-known Swiss brands have made the leap into the modern age. Including Cresta. Komenda AG has always aimed to reconcile and maintain technical innovations with Swiss tradition.
Swiss bike manufacturer
The design, engineering, painting and the final manufacture of a Cresta also take place in times of globalization in Switzerland and exclusively for Swiss specialist retailers. In this way, Swissness is preserved, a significant part of the added value occurs in the country and unnecessary transport routes are saved.
Coloring in the in-house paint shop
Cresta-Velos get their special color finish in the in-house paint shop. The high-quality powder coatings have hardly any transport routes, keep energy consumption and pollution low and are produced on demand according to individual requirements – environmentally friendly according to Swiss environmental regulations, resilient, corrosion and weather-resistant.
Every Cresta bike is unique. After it has been individually compiled in the online configurator, the desired components are manufactured by hand in custom-made production. It is then delivered to the end customer via the bicycle dealer.
MyVelo – the digital counterpart
The individual production enables every bike to have a digital copy. The MyVelo app provides the customer with extensive services and information that is individually tailored to the customer’s bike.
