Niek Geerts

Master of product development

I ride my bike for multiple reasons. First for being fit and healty, second is to free my mind. Last but not least nothing sounds better then a bicicyle that doesn't make any sounds but the chain running on the chainring and the wind passing the rims.

As the Product Manager within Team FFWD, Niek fulfills the leading role in the development of our wheels. He deals with all technical aspects down to the smallest details and is aware of market trends like no other. Our team motto is: if you have a technical or service question, better call Niek! You can also regularly find him behind the table tennis table for a relaxing game of ping pong.

Niek strives to create a nice and strong competitive product range within FFWD. At home you will find his impressive collection of bikes, including an S-Works Venge, Specialized Crux, Cannondale Scalpel HM and a Gazelle Makki cargo bike. His passion for cycling is partly due to years of racing in races at the amateur level.

Among the pros, the Tour of Flanders is his favorite cycling race in which Niek likes to identify with one of the most legendary riders in cycling: Tom Boonen. When he goes on vacation by bike, he prefers the challenging roads of the French Alps.

In his free time Niek likes to be active, whether on his bike or with various home-job projects. With the constant energy and progressive outlook, Niek is a valuable and dynamic force within our team.
