A bike challenge from Amsterdam to Athens by the owner of COCO-MAT.bike Paul Efmorfidis and his son. Regular bikes came short.
“Irregular minds were activated. Nature was set in motion.”
COCO-MAT.bike is a journey through nature’s sustainable resources, human wisdom and love. Imagine a small seed, put with care and respect inside our planet Earth. A couple of years after, this seed becomes a bicycle. It rides proud and in style around the world spreading the word of sustainability, innovation and joy. COCO-MAT.bike connects you with yourself, other people, places, ideas and companies.
The idea was born in Southern Greece. Under the bright, generous and invigorating Sun. Next to the turquoise and restless sea. Cool mountain breeze of Northern Greece gave shape and breath to the first prototype. We needed expertise, knowledge and wisdom. We brought it to the aged and wise Athens.
Ever since you can find the COCO-MAT.bike all over the world.
The wooden bike is made to be a world’s best. Endless hours of work, research and try-outs have shaped a revolutionary bike whose ergonomic design ensures comfortable and smooth riding while the aesthetics make it an eye-catching statement – move with Nature.
By using wood, we managed to robustly extend the bike’s life cycle and at the same time carry nature’s imprint in the daily life of the urban landscape. Sustainable wood is resourced from certified renewable forests, that preserve the biodiversity and maintain the landscape and eco-systems of the world. No rubbish will be left behind to the future generations.
An adult ash tree can provide us with enough wood to make 50 bikes. Every time a friend purchases a bike, we plant a tree on behalf of the new owner.
