30 years Corratec
Passion of cycling - This is the pure definition and true reflection of corratec. As a Company, as a brand, as a racing Team, as a bike manufacturer and as a partner in retail.
Since 1990 this is our fixed philosophy. This is the basis of our principles that characterise our work, our bikes and our actions. To ride and feel the corratec technologies are unique. Only those who have experienced corratec will understand the feeling that of which cannot be truly expressed in pictures or words, but only through the feeling – The freedom, life and passion. Since 1990, the aspiration to create the perfect bicycle is our greatest motivation. Every day we strive to progress closer to this ambition. In this successive season, we will make our mark that highlights our divergence from the mass-produced bicycles with our sole focus on quality over and above all. The new Shadow Edge Tube Technology, the world’s strongest and securest corratec E-Bike frame (Fusion Tube Edge Technology), Integrated Engine Bottom Bracket, Inside Link, C-Light and more. Upon these innovations lie our foundations that focus to compete only within the special bicycles market. A sportive and high-quality bike in this new era can no longer be compared with bikes of the past. Today they are small technical marvels powered by human force or electronic engines. All who ride a corratec bike, will truly feel the difference.

The Zzyzx brand which is named after the same californian village has been specializing in the development and manufacture of aftermarket parts for corratec since 1993. Zzyzx became known for its high quality downhill components, which quickly made the brand a supplier to corratec. In 1993 due to the strong cooperation over the years corratec decided to secure the company and thus also the trademark rights and sells the components on all corratec bikes under its own brand Zzyzx [ˈzaɪzɪks].
