BlackHeart Bike Company was founded with the vision of making bikes that perfectly marry beauty and function.
We started with one titanium allroad bike that looks like a road bike, handles like a road bike, while having the capability of a modern gravel bike.
Since launch, we've grown primarily through community development and have seen the incredible impact individuals have had on our company, our sport, and our community.
As a result, we've made it our mission to support individuals working to make cycling a more welcoming and inclusive sport.
Zach found cycling early, racing BMX as a kid in the 80s, riding mountain bikes in the 90s, and finding road cycling when he moved to LA in 2008. After years of battling cars on the streets of LA, he took his road bike onto the fire roads of SoCal and immediately fell in love.
He saw a need for a single bike that struck the perfect balance between road and gravel bikes, and was better suited for the average cycling enthusiast who didn't count every gram or measure every watt.
Thus, BlackHeart was born.
