No matter which component system or bike you use: the perfect chain ensures smooth cycling. And this is Wippermanns single motivation. They combine more than 125 years of bike expertise with the experience and engineering of an international chain manufacturer. Wippermann produce all of their chains from the highest-grade steels in state-of-the-art production facilities.

Before launching any new model, the chains must first be thoroughly tested to withstand the highest loads in Wippermanns R&D plants, followed by experienced pro cyclists in extensive tests in both everyday and racing conditions.

Wippermann started to produce drive chains for the industry as early as 1929. Today, the Hagen-based high-tech enterprise with approx. 300 employees develops high-quality systems for drive and conveying technology and ranks among the most important producers of roller chains and sprockets worldwide.

As a successful family enterprise in its fifth generation, Wippermann still produces at the company’s Hagen domicile and is the global supplier of innovative high-quality products to customers.

The company dedicates the wealth of experience and know-how it has acquired over the decades and the high technological expertise to continuous research and development. Thus, new ideas for products and production processes are created which not only benefit the industrial segment but also the chain segment. Since the 1990s, the brand "Connex by Wippermann" has successfully established itself in the accessory market for bikes.
