There is always room for improvement…

Functionality, design, weight and stiffness!? There are plenty of parameters to keep in mind at the beginning of any product development process. My personal aim is to offer properly engineered components, with superior overall performance.

Apart from that, all Intend products are made under fair and sustainable conditions. Fair prices for customers and fair wages for everyone involved. A good and reliable relationship to all suppliers, as well as to all customers, is the base of a successful business.  

Who is Intend?

Intend is more or less a one man show. My name is Cornelius Kapfinger, born in 1986 in Regensburg / Germany. I studied at the Technical University in Vienna / Austria and graduated successfully in industrial engineering. My number one passion is mountain bikes. My job and what I love most, is the development of outstanding bicycle components .

What is Intend?

Years ago, I started to build my own fork from scratch. Countless valves, rods and stanchions later, I decided to go all in and founded Intend Bicycle Components. As of now, I’m operating from a spare room in my apartment and do what I absolutely love.

The main goal is to focus on the essentials and to be able to deliver high quality engineering, precision, and good service. This is what I try to do – every hour, every day. There is no fancy office and no huge production line. It’s a small place that includes everything necessary.

This is what Intend Bicycle Components is striving for!
