"They are symbols, symbols of an entire lifestyle"
Riding bicycles has been a big part of my life since I was a little kid when I had just as much fun riding as today. The only difference is that now I get to create and personalize my own ride just like many other bike enthusiasts. The only problem is that most of us live in smaller apartments where the bike takes up too much space leaning against the walls… and who wants to leave their "Pride and Joy" all alone on the dark streets instead of admiring it even when not ridden?!
After creating the very first SVIK Trophy for a good friend of mine, I instantly knew that this is what I have to do, this is what I want to do! I am proud to say that there was a lot of positive feedback right from the beginning up till this day, which keeps motivating me in my creativity.
Another thing I was sure about right from the start; not one trophy created by my own hands will ever be the same!
Whenever someone asks me to describe them with one sentence, the same thing pops to my mind every time: “Symbols, symbols of an entire lifestyle!”
My products are a hundred percent handmade and customized, with their own name, serial number and they all have their own little story behind them. Before creating a custom trophy, I always ask my future SVIK owners to send me a few lines about themselves and a photo of the future wall/home of their new trophy. This helps me to personalize my products as much as possible.
The trophies are not just decorative, but are functional with a 25kg hanging capacity, which allows their owners to save space in their homes by hanging their bikes or any other prized sports equipment such as snowboard, surfboard, skis, etc.
Most of my products are created using beech, various tropical pines as for the wooden parts and depending on the order, aluminum, brass, steel or carbon fiber are also used. I always try to learn more about different materials to be able to guarantee top quality.
