Bike Festival Riva: The first bikes are ready to ride
Raw aluminium in voluminous tube form, clear design language, visible welding seams, unusual parts and a German product name: ROTWILD sets a special exclamation mark with its very first bike in 1996. Toothed belt drive, electronic gear shift, carbon fork as well as the first disc brake make clear: Here pure engineering art is created!

Concentrated mechanic competence: Danny Herz and Bowie
In the first seriesfully the ROTWILD engineers realize an active single joint suspension system. A technical specialty is the axially adjustable main swing arm bearing with special full ball filling. Geometry and function characterize all following generations since the first bike.
The bike immediately wins 2nd place in the readers' vote for the bike of the year.
The ROTWILD FreeRide Bike lays the foundation for a new bike category. With its adjustable
With a shock absorber position of up to 135 mm suspension travel and its groundbreaking geometry, the concept achieves a high degree of versatility for different terrain. From a 1998 perspective, the RFR.01 represents the ideal of a perfect All Mountains.
