Pilen Cykel

Pilen is the pragmatic romantic Swedish bicycle dedicated to people who follow their own path in life. It is made by a real family business in the charming village of Gamleby on Sweden's beautiful Baltic Coast.

Few models – thousand variants

Pilen bikes are available in a few basic models. The basic models can be customized into a variety of variants, called Special, where you choose how your Special model will look and be equipped. Choose color scheme and components according to your own taste. We build for you and the bike is delivered to the retailer in a timely manner – often within a few weeks.


The Lyx is a classic beauty with distinctly Scandinavian tones. It offers a pleasant ride in upright driving position facing the sun.


Pilen City is a straightforward and minimalist bike that suits every day enjoyment. Great driving experience and no frills.


The GT is a brisk bike with a long pleasant aftertaste. You'll be enjoying an a more forward-leaning driving position.


The GTV is a snappy and exclusive bike with hydraulic disc brakes and 10 or 11 gears. A very stylish and elegant ride.

Built for a good driving experience

What distinguishes a Pilen from other utility bikes?

A strong and resilient frame
TIG-welded frame in chromium-molybdenum steel grade 4130 or alloy 6061 T6. More expensive and performing metal grades. Brazed details. The frame is both stronger and more flexible with heightened driving experience. Go for a ride and feel the difference. The Pilen is both strong and resilient.
Quality bottom bracket

The heart of every Pilen bike is a maintenance-free bottom bracket from Tange model with forged steel solid spindle, quality shielded bearings and light alloy body cups. Great spinning, more efficient power transmission, broader smile and better driving experience.

Stainless materials

Fenders, stems and posts, carrier clamps, bolts and nuts are of stainless steel or aluminium. It looks smashing and gives a maintenance-free ownership.

Brooks leather saddles
The Pilens bikes are or can be equipped with exclusive leather saddles from English Brooks. The saddle requires care, but offers unbeatable seat comfort. It's is beautiful and has a long life.
Super strong 28 wheels
Pilen bikes have double bottomed aluminium rims, targeted spoke holes, eyelets and strong spokes in stainless steel. The wheels are built and trued in-house.
An extraordinary fork
Elegant fork with crisp cast crown and lugged brazed fork legs in chrome-molybdenum 4130. It is precise and responsive and feels both smooth and safe.

The construction is well thought out and the use of stainless materials as far as it goes a matter of principle.
