OUR STORY

Wiilubike was born when Wood Innovations Finland Oy co-founder Ilari the lumberjack decided he wanted to make something else out of wood than fire logs. As an active biker he got the idea of utilizing wood as the frame material on a bicycle. That would combine his passion biking and sustainable mindset.

Wood Innovations Finland Oy was founded in the beginning of 2015 to design and produce a wooden bicycle. Ilari gathered strategical partners from different fields and also funding through Leader Karhuseutu. This enabled the team to design, test and produce a prototype.

Wiilubike debuted June 2017 at the Bioaika starting event in Helsinki. Wiilubike toured Finland during summer and fall with Bioaika. It has been presented on different events, such as Habitare, Erämessut, Helsinki Fashion Week and Helsinki Design Week.
