About SKS

Who doesn't know it: the legendary Rennkompressor from SKS? It is something special when a company succeeds in developing a product that is still in the range decades later. The Rennkompressor is such a product. It is more than just an air pump. It is a piece of bicycle history and a piece of company history. It stands for bicycle pumps made in Germany. It is synonymous with bicycle pumps from SKS.

Air pumps are an important part of the product range of the bicycle accessories specialist from Sauerland. Yet the history of SKS Germany once began with a different product. SKS was founded in 1921 and initially produced curtain rods. The company headquarters have always been in Sundern, in the middle of the Sauerland region. In 1932, the company took over an air pump manufacturer from the region: the beginning of SKS as a bicycle parts specialist.

In 1966, SKS presented the Rennkompressor. A milestone for the company, which continued to develop. In the meantime, the processing of plastic had entered production and with it a new product category: the SKS wheel guard. By wheel guard, SKS meant the classic mudguard. Because plastic was used and not sheet metal, a new name was chosen. In the meantime, they have returned to the classic term of mudguard. Today, bicycle bags, luggage racks, mobile phone holders and all kinds of practical accessories complete the product range.

SKS and Sustainability

SKS is one of those companies that has always acted sustainably. The big topic of sustainability is not a trend here, but part of the corporate philosophy. This includes the fact that SKS attaches great importance to good quality. If a product breaks, it can be repaired: There are suitable spare parts for many defects. Sustainability means regionality for SKS. Most products are produced locally in Sundern. If necessary and possible, companies from the region help out. Powder coating, for example, is carried out by a company in the surrounding area. Inclusion is also an important issue. For this reason, SKS works together with Caritas from the area. They take over the pre-assembly of certain products.

SKS Mudguards – Wetness Protection Made Easy

SKS offers a wide range of mudguards for bicycles. It ranges from classic mudguards for city and touring bikes to the minimalist plastic SKS MTB mudguards for occasional use. With the Speedrocker, the company even has easy-to-mount fenders for gravel bikes – the SKS gravel mudguards like the Speedrocker fender set – in its range. Many SKS mudguards are available for all possible wheel sizes. In this way, you can easily find suitable mudguards for special applications on cargo bikes or fatbikes. 

With SKS fenders you have a huge choice, whether you're just looking for SKS rear mudguards or sets. The classic mudguards like the SKS Bluemels or the stylish SKS Edge are attached directly to the frame at fixed mounting points. Models like the SKS Speedrocker Set and the SKS Raceblade can be mounted independently of such eyelets with their quick-release mounting system. They are perfect for mounting on sporty bikes with carbon aero frames and forks. Mudguards like the Flap Guard or the Shockblade are minimalist. They are attached with a quick release system or cable ties and are specially designed for use on mountain bikes. As with the pumps, you can find spare parts for your SKS mudguard with which you can repair defects.

SKS Bicycle Pumps

SKS pumps are built in such a way that they can be repaired. If something breaks, there are spare parts for your SKS air pump. With an SKS pump, you are choosing a quality product made in Germany.

The SKS USP, MSP and SAM pumps are special pumps for filling air shocks on full-suspension mountain bikes.

SKS Luggage Carrier

Infinity Universal is the name of SKS' own luggage carrier system. Thanks to its variable attachment, it fits on every bike. It is not screwed to the conventional mounting eyelets, but lashed to the struts of the rear triangle with nylon straps. This makes the SKS luggage rack interesting for all bikes on which no conventional luggage rack fits. In this way, for example, suspension enduro mountain bikes can be upgraded for longer bike trips.

The SKS luggage rack fits perfectly with other products from the SKS universe. Bike bags and mudguards can be attached to the Infinity Universal carrier with a click. In this way, you can transport up to 12 kg of luggage safely and without wobbling.

It depends on what kind of bike you have and whether you want to pump at home or on the road. SKS floor pumps are suitable for stationary use.

For a mountain bike it is important that your SKS mini pump can quickly fill as much volume as possible. Here the pressure is less important. Many SKS mini pumps have an adjustment system. Either you pump with maximum volume flow or with high pressure.
