 In 1974, BMX Products, Inc., later to be known as Mongoose Bicycles, launched from a humble
garage. The first of its kind, the BMX bicycle was named after bicycle motocross and was designed to
fit the needs of the rough-and-tumble dirt-racing pastime that took its toll on wheels and bicycles. The
heavy-duty, one-piece cast-aluminum Mongoose Motomag wheel was soon born, and it was the first
competition-ready BMX bicycle available. Skip Hess, while in Australia pursuing his motor sports
passion, came into contact with a strange and unusual cat-size animal--the mongoose. Known for its
passive nature while unprovoked, yet vicious and aggressive enough to kill a threatening Cobra twice
its size, the Mongoose impressed Hess, who quickly registered the Mongoose trademark for his new
bicycle racing frame. The Expert BMX bicycle model, which is still a cornerstone of the Mongoose
BMX line today, was introduced in 1980. Shortly after, Mongoose captured the first ever ABA National
#1 Cruiser Title. Previously known for the 20-inch bicycle, this title signaled the re-direction of
Mongoose bicycles to larger-wheeled, adult-sized models. Several years later, Mongoose continues to
dominate the cruiser racing circuit with six National No. 1 Cruiser titles, leading to the introduction of
adult-sized Mongoose all-terrain bicycles (ATBs). In 1992, Mongoose pioneered the full-suspension
market with the introduction of the Amplifier. This design is still the most-copied suspension design in
the market. Several year later, Mongoose launched the Newman adult bicycle frame, which is proven
to be 15% stronger than any other bike frame in the market. The design, while functionally sound, also
raised eyebrows because of its distinctive look. In the next few years, Mongoose increased its
marketing focus to dominate the bicycle industry, and more important, extend beyond it. The
Mongoose brand marketing initiative makes more than 100 million impressions. Mongoose’s brand
awareness increased by over 130% in 1999 and solidifies the No. 2 market share position in units and
dollars. Mongoose was acquired by Pacific Cycle, LLC, and continues to grow and prosper with more
than 40 models of BMX, mountain, trail, freestyle, jumping, comfort, road, and cyclocross bikes.
