About Us

Our Story                                                  

Buffalo Bicycles is a wholly owned, for-profit subsidiary of World Bicycle Relief--a non-profit organization transforming lives through the power of bicycles. Profits from the sale of Buffalo Bicycles help fund World Bicycle Relief's philanthropic programs and build a sustainable bicycle infrastructure in Africa.


Buffalo bicycles are unquestionably the strongest bikes in Africa. They are built with heavy-gauge steel, reinforced spokes and a rack ready to carry 100kg+ loads. When you invest in a Buffalo for your business or organization, you receive the product of years of expert engineering, testing and quality control - the best bike in Africa.


Buffalo connects the end-user directly with bicycle suppliers; the result is a robust bike engineered specifically for rural African terrain and load requirements. Our Africa-based product development team oversees a fleet of riders who test current and potential components under the most punishing field conditions.

Local Assembly             

Buffalo Bicycles are designed, tested and assembled in Africa, providing jobs in the local economy. We have facilities in Angola, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Our skilled assembly teams take pride in their work and ensure that your bike is built to endure the adverse conditions it will face.


Buffalo Bicycles are compatible with locally available spare parts. We also train Field Mechanics to service bikes. For large purchases we provide field mechanic training to ensure your business or community is equipped with skilled mechanics to service and maintain your Buffalo. With proper care and maintenance, this durable bike will serve you for years.
