DT Swiss has acquired Trickstuff for an undisclosed fee and will take over the company on January 1.
Trickstuff is best known for its powerful brakes
but also produces other small parts such as bottom brackets and adapters from its base in Pfaffenweiler near Freiburg. Trickstuff will remain operating as an independent brand with its own identity and products but the Swiss wheel builder will help to develop the brand going forward thanks to its knowledge in business model development, IT infrastructure, supply chain management and production optimisation.
Klaus Liedler, Trickstuff’s former owner, will continue in a managing director role.
