GARAGE TO GLOBAL

Every good story starts with an idea. In 1974, Skip Hess had an idea for a cast-magnesium wheel
durable enough for BMX riding. Over 45 years later, Mongoose is a globally recognized brand built on innovation.
From BMX, to mountain bikes, scooters, and more, Mongoose delivers one of the best riding experiences out there.

And it all started with a wheel in a Southern California garage.
