About Us


We believe that rider experience is key to adopting and sustaining cycling as a hobby and sport, and our products are carefully designed to delight our riders, instead of just chasing specs and numbers. 

Our Bolt and Intrepid Mini Velos are a result of our Singaporean heritage. Living in a dense, highly populated city, we sought to make the ultimate urban bikes - bikes that are nimble, light, and responsive - perfect for riding in the city. 

Our key strength is in being able to customize each bike to each rider’s needs; instead of being mass-produced, we tailor the components of each Velo to suit its rider, and hand-assemble every Velo in our facility in Singapore.

What do we do

Started in 2019 by Qing Xiang (QX) Yee, a former engineer at DSO National Laboratories who found his passion in cycling, Ascent Bikes is a Singaporean company that prides itself on the user experience. With a relentless focus on innovation and pushing the boundaries of road and urban cycling, Ascent has grown into an international brand, with dealerships in several countries, and sales globally.

Our focus remains the same - providing the user with a delightful ride.

Philosophy of innovation

Our core philosophy is that any innovation we do has to be rider-focused. We focus on innovating in areas that will improve the riding experience, from the development of carbon wheels that enhance rider confidence, to ultra-smooth bottom brackets that make the ride smoother.


Our approach to product design is simple: You are the most important part of the equation.

From little touches like anti-rust chains, to carbon wheels that remain steady even in crosswinds, we make your rides delightful and enjoyable.


The performance and effectiveness of our products stems from our deep experience in engineering and design.

Through thoughtful design, and rigorous testing, we deliver cutting-edge products that will improve your riding experience.


From high-strength Aluminium 6066, to high-modulus carbon fibers, we choose only the finest materials for our designs to bring your riding experience to the next level.
