After over a decade in Germany, Propain expanded in the U.S. in 2020. The brand now prepares to land a unique jump bike on American soil. It isn’t shy about the niche nature of its newest addition — the Trickshot isn’t your all-around, sensible commuter or hybrid trail rider. Instead, Propain aims the bike at “relaxed dirt jump session with the buddies at sunset, at the pump track searching for the perfect flow or in the skate park doing endless jibs, tricks and flips.”
With the jump bike, Propain targets riders at any level and claims a ton of terrain versatility. The Trickshot’s aluminum frame is light enough to catch big air, or flow through your favorite pump tracks.
