Bamboo fenders are the latest trend in the retro style look of bikes and it underlines the ‘Green’ image of the bicycle. Ching Chern has developed a bamboo fender in response to the Green concept while more bamboo products are in the R&D stage.

According to Ching Chern bamboo is very suitable to be processed for various kinds of products. Bamboo is solid as a rock, it has a high tensile strength and it can not be pulled apart easily.

The environmental aspect is a main advantage of bamboo over other materials like alloy or polycarbonate. Steel, alloy and carbon are highly polluting compared with bamboo and above all it can be recycled and it decomposes naturally.

Until now, one model is in mass production, but Ching Chern is looking for partners who intend to joint in the development of the most environmental friendly and stylish bamboo products and bicycle components. Currently the bamboo fenders are sold through Taiwanese trading companies on US market and after this year’s launch at Eurobike, Ching Chern is expecting to expand its distribution network in Europe rapidly.

Bamboo fenders can be painted like any other fender. However, one of bamboo’s features is its unique lines of bamboo joints. This natural character will be covered if painted and therefore Ching Chern always recommends OEM’s to maintain the real colour of bamboo, because of its retro style and unique impression.
