Our history of relentless challenge, research, and passion is the drive upon which we will build our road to becoming the world leader in bicycles.
With our listing in KOSDAQ in 2011, we managed to achieve better transparency and sharing with our investors. With our affiliation with the IT material company, INNOX, we are preparing for yet another evolution. With the enhancement of our high-strength and lightweight lineup, and INNOX’s expertise in quality management system, Alton Sports is on its way to becoming a premier name in the bicycle industry with its top-class competitiveness.

With the completion of our 2nd factory in China, we could, at last, produce our own frames, and in the domestic market, we commissioned the construction of our Yangju factory after our Busan branch was completed.
As we succeeded in developing our first electric bike and the KS certificate, we continued to work on the maintenance of high product quality and new product development.
