Founded in 2013 by Robert Barr and a desire to create a mini downhill bike, pedal up and smash the descents!
The starting vision:
'Design and develop a full carbon, high pivot bike using composite expertise from the motorsport industry. Push the limits of design and performance.'
The companies name is an anagram of Rob's surname that sounds like the initial and surname.
Pronounced like ‘harbour’ without the h!
……Arbor is also Latin for tree, so it fits in well with the natural environment which is such a big part of mountain biking.
There was nothing like the Saker! We made the Dirt 100! Twice!
Our journey has been a chance to think differently and collaborate with a diverse group that collectively hold similar ideals and vision.
Our second model was a striking 29er with the pivot and linkage moved lower in the frame.
It's not easy, but as they say, nothing good ever is!
