SKS X Blade 26
As an authentic manufacturer brand, SKS-Germany can look back on a long history of Made in Germany products. In 1921, Karl Scheffer-Klute founded the company in Sundern, Germany (SKS= Scheffer-Klute Sundern). By taking over the traditional British brand Bluemels in 1983, the entrance into the mudguard segment was made. In 1988 large-scale production of extruded mudguards began. Later on, after taking over the ESGE-production, these became known as Chromoplastics- a worldwide reference for mudguards. With the development of the first quick-release dirtboard-sets for mountain bikes-the Shockboard and X-Tra Dry in 1999, SKS became pioneer and market leader in this fast growing segment for accessories. In 2003, the production of compact bike tools was introduced as an additional product division for the after market By adding highly innovative chain guards to the portfolio in 2006, SKS continues as solution provider for the modern bike industry.
