We here at APER bikes are excited to share the launch of our brand, and our debut bike the revolutionary KOMPace. An enduro bike that is designed to bring another level of performance defining suspension to the enduro segment. Featuring our cutting edge patented ‘Rising Pivot Technology’ our CNC machined, handbuilt frames offer another level of performance and innovation.
Rising Pivot Technology takes the control of the rear wheel’s movement to an entirely new level. This high pivot design, has a unique characteristic: as the rear suspension moves through its travel the pivot rises, extending the rear axle path by 45mm efficiently absorbing impact energy and maximizing acceleration. This unique combination results in the KOMPace offering unmatched traction, bringing new levels of confidence and control on even the most challenging trails.
The Aluminum 7075-T6 CNC’d frame further sets it apart, blending lightweight durability with high performance. Designed, manufactured and hand built in-house, every detail of the KOM Pace frame is meticulously designed to deliver a bike that takes performance to another level.

About APER bikes:
APER bikes was founded by Nikos Lamprou and Giorgos Kostopoulos, two mechanical engineers with a passion for all things MTB. Driven by the spirit of innovation, and the need to bring another level of performance, we designed and developed the ‘Rising Pivot technology’ and the KOMPace bike.
KOMPace was born on the wild mountain trails of Erymanthus in Greece, home of the Erymanthus wild Boar.
“Aper” in Latin is the wild boar. The wild boar of Erymanthus is a mythological creature symbolizing the untamed, wild nature that surrounded the ancient Greeks. For APER Bikes, this symbol represents the thrill and excitement of the mountains, the rush of adrenaline that comes with riding on untamed trails and pushing oneself to new limits.
