Made in Germany

innovative and unique carbon bike components

all ahead composites GmbH is an innovative company whose core competence is the development, construction, calculation and manufacture of fiber-reinforced plastic. With the innovative and unique carbon bicycle components on the market, which are marketed under the brand BIKE AHEAD COMPOSITES, all ahead offers high-quality products to ambitious mountain bikers that combine lightweight construction, stiffness and durability in a unique way.

all ahead is able to map the entire cycle of product development in-house – from the idea to series production. The state-of-the-art and extremely extensive machinery is complemented by CAD workstations and a highly motivated team. From autoclave to RTM, RIM, VARIM to hand laminating process, an optimal manufacturing process can be guaranteed for every component. In addition to the in-house production of the bike ahead composites brand, all ahead composites also cooperates with numerous partners from research and industry and develops high-quality products and components from CFRP for these.


how it all started

The founder of all ahead composites GmbH – Christian Gemperlein – was infected with the cycling virus very early on. With his first mountain bike in 1994, his interest in bicycle technology also began. The 90s were characterized by numerous innovations and developments in cycling technology – components such as suspension forks, disc brakes or full suspension experienced a steep ascent, but also from the material side an arms race began at that time, in which the composite carbon played a large and fascinating role.

Christian Gemperlein was also fascinated by the huge possibilities, the exclusivity and the touch of racing. He quickly realized that at some point he wanted to develop a bicycle component from CFRP himself and that his future career choice must therefore have something to do with this material. Thus, he studied the study course in plastics and elastomer technology at the University of Applied Sciences in Würzburg. As part of his diploma thesis, it was a good time for him to finally put his childhood dream of self-development into action. The title of the work was: "Development, construction, FEM calculation and construction of a CFRP composite wheel for mountain bikes" and was the foundation stone for the ac biturbo at the time.

Driven by the results of his work and the dream of self-employment, Christian Gemperlein founded the company all ahead composites GmbH in 2010 and was thus able to turn two passions into a profession: cycling technology and working with composite materials. The goal of all ahead composites GmbH is to develop and manufacture the highest quality and innovative carbon products "MADE IN GERMANY" and to make customers happy with them. This requires a dedicated team that shares a passion for the material and is looking forward to inspiring many new members of the BIKE AHEAD family with the unique components in the future.

think ahead


Our innovative ideas, the many years of experience in the field of fiber composites and our mountain bike passion are reflected in the exceptional quality of our products. We develop, design and manufacture every product from the first idea to the serial product itself under one roof in Germany.

The daily drive of our entire team is to find ever better solutions to take the experience on the bike to a new level. Our aim is to combine the contrasts lightweight construction, stiffness and durability in a unique way, so that no compromises have to be made. For example, we have developed unique, competitive wheels made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) specifically for off-road use.

We produce our products with the best materials and the highest quality manufacturing process at the moment. This results in the lowest weights at the highest strength.
Our development and production takes place exclusively in Germany. According to our extensive quality assurance, we ensure that you have maximum driving pleasure.
After purchase, we offer the registered first owner a 3-year crash replacement service, which provides compensation after a damage event, with appropriate excess.
Our involvement in the UCI World Cup (XCO, XCM) and as a sponsor of the Ghost Factory Racing Team enables us to develop our products directly in the toughest test environment. But we are also a committed partner regionally.
