Champaign and caviar, vodka and Martini, style and sustainability – combinations make life more creative, more beautiful and richer. PG Bikes has found the perfect partner in Munich Composites to put a new and unique bicycle concept onto the market.

The Munich start-up developed a new procedure for the production of braided carbon frames. Its new and very special braiding technology renders the particularly high-performance material as stable as metal while weighing less than aluminium. A master piece for the road was created in cooperation with PG: The PG – BlackBraid built by Munich Composites. The bike is marketed in two different versions: as a Fixie, it is the perfect companion in town; in the Touring version, it is just perfect for long distances.

Slim, elegant, high-tech – the BlackBraid combines sensation and understatement, form and function.
