SVO is a bike company based in the town of Blis et Born in southwestern France that specializes in rugged mountain bikes with belts, or “courroies” in French. That’s the Dakar 29 above. SVO bikes are built to last, with sturdy components including Rohloff internal hubs instead of derailleurs.
SVO also makes a 27.5 inch tire sized version of the Dakar, shown below, and a hard tail model called the Speeder, at bottom.
