Girvin Proflex bicycle

On this page: 52cm Girvin Proflex 353 hybrid bicycle

Girvin Offroad ProFlex bikes offered a revolutionary way to suspend the rider, using elastomer cushions to absorb shock. The company was probably the first to offer both front and rear suspension. At some point K2 purchased the maker and then ceased producing the bikes. Replacement elastomer cushions are still available.

The frame has rear elastomer suspension while the duty of front suspension is performed by a Girvin elastomer flex stem.
