Dutch cycling brand BASIL originated in the 1970s, when former owner Nico van Balveren - who at the time was a bicycle retailer - started producing a variety of bicycle baskets. A number of successful years later, the name of the company was updated to BASIL, a contraction of Nico’s name ‘van Balveren’ and ‘Silvolde’ the town where it all began.
In 2001 BASIL was passed down the family to Marthijn, Nico’s son, who continues to run the thriving company today from its base in Holland. Sold in over 17 countries, BASIL remains a popular brand, thanks to their unwavering commitment to their core values: reliability, innovation and contemporary style. They continue to produce imaginative, beautiful kit for... well, civilised cycling. Even Dutch royalty love BASIL, with Princess Amalia sporting one of their bicycle panniers.
