Synergy Cycle is about a fresh start and the belief that a shared love of cycling is an opportunity to contribute something positive to our environment and marketplace. Rather than simply seeking to maximize sales, Synergy Cycle’s priority is to share cycling knowledge with cyclists and cyclists to be. Whether you’re purchasing a bicycle, servicing a bicycle, or just looking for advice, Synergy wants you to cycle more.
Thanks to founders Patrick Russell and Nick Kirschner’s many previously-established relationships in the Canadian cycling industry, Synergy Cycle has had the good fortune to start off with the support of some of the strongest, no-nonsense bicycle brands on the market. Specialized, Cervélo and Santa Cruz are all brands that have consistently made their name by defining and perfecting proven technologies, captivating the attention of the cycling industry.
At Synergy, winters are spent finding the best products on the market that satisfy our standards for price, durability, performance, and product support. Synergy seeks to establish a “bottom line” for consumerism: if we consume at all, we need to consume products that are manufactured thoughtfully and without design compromises. We believe it is our job to help the consumer make sustainable choices, and it is the retailer, wholesaler and manufacturer’s responsibility to design, distribute and stand behind products that meet these requirements.Nick Kirschner
