One passion


Ateliers HeritageBike® is born from the will of Xavier Wargnier and Guillaume Monsigny to create electrically assisted bicycles, which upset the usual codes. Gathered around a common passion for beautiful mechanics and ecological concerns, they decided to create a brand of electrically-assisted bicycles, Ateliers  HeritageBike® based on the shores of Lake Annecy. With the help of five other passionate partners, the dream becomes reality. Our models combine technology, luxury, craftsmanship and French know-how.

The French


We took up the challenge of creating the most "Made in France" electric bikes possible. From the very beginning of the project, we have chosen French know-how in order to perpetuate and anchor the production on our territory. With this in mind, our bikes are produced exclusively in small limited series. The design, engineering, manufacturing of the frames, the different composite parts, the enameled brand plates, the leather parts, the paints, the assembly and the finishing are made in France. When it was impossible to find an accessory in France that meets our specifications, we prefer European producers.
