The two friends Patrick Morewood and Mark Hopkins decided to launch the PYGA brand in 2011. Patrick, who has become known by the gravity brand Morewood, and Marc, who founded Leatt, are sharing the same intention: To build high quality bikes that cover the range from XC to All-Mountain while being light and durable. The result is unmistakeable!

Look at the numbers, but listen to your gut."

We’re a small South African bike company founded by Patrick Morewood, founder of Morewood bikes; and Mark Hopkins, of cSixx products and co-founder of Leatt. We’ve both been heavily involved in mountain biking for years, and have been friends for well over a decade. The most important thing that binds us is our love of riding.

We decided we wanted to make bikes that were competitive on the racetrack while still being super fun to bomb around on our local trails. Our suspension bikes are designed to pedal efficiently, be active, supple and integrate the technology that makes new-age bikes amazing to ride. We’ve kept our geometries a little more relaxed than most out there, so they retain a character of fun.

It’s a simple principle: look at the numbers, but listen to your gut.

These are not super-duper race machines, they are bikes that are designed to enjoy riding on any trail. They’re bikes that put smiles on people’s faces, even the racing snakes.
