KS is a great example of how perseverance and innovation can turn a new idea into a game-changer product. Our brand’s DNA is rooted in a history of visionary creativity and innovative thinking. Our brand is all about being creative and thinking outside the box. We started back in 1983 in Taiwan, and ever since then, we’ve been rocking the world of bike components with our top-notch quality.
Starting as an OEM manufacturer, in 1997, we took things up a notch and started creating our own brand. That’s when we started making mind-blowing bicycle shock absorbers. And in 1999, we introduced our first-ever dropper seat post. That was a big deal because this product category was going to change mountain biking like probably no other invention.
