Presenting the all new Psynyde FURAN.
The most exciting Mountain Bike (MTB) made by Indians for the world.
What is unique about the FURAN - Two words: Design & Geometry
Praveen Prabhakaran and Vinay Menon are two of India’s foremost cycling enthusiasts. Years of trials and tribulations with mountain bikes available in the market propelled them to design and develop a top of the line mountain bike, the Psynyde FURAN.
You now have a chance to get a world class Mountain Bike designed by these 2 whizzes. They have established an enviable reputation for themselves amongst the best bikers in India. Read more about them & their unique FURAN bike which is available at special crowdfunding prices.

The FURAN has a very simple and effective design philosophy that will encourage you to push your limits. For the uninitiated, a hardtail bike is a bike with only front suspension, making it more of a rider driven experience and what most off-road and mountain bikers will swear by.
Our bikes are thoroughly thought out. The features, modern progressive geometry, ride quality and handling has been extensively tested by both seasoned off-road and road cycle enthusiasts. This is truly the perfect range of bikes for all terrains.
This kind of geometry is not offered by any of the existing foreign bicycle brands currently operating in India.
The Psynyde FURAN is an ideal machine for beginners getting a feel for cycling and pushing the limits for beginners as well as experienced riders.

You’re probably wondering what is the difference between a MTB (Mountain Bike) and a road bike. Let’s give you the low-down on the major differences!
- Mountain bikes are made for extreme conditions - the Psynyde FURAN features Hydroformed aluminum alloy tubes to ensure sturdiness.
- Mountain bikes have thicker treaded tyres when compared to road bikes which are fitted with thin slick tyres. Giving a better grip and stability on rough terrain. Great for mountains, rough tracks and yes even for Indian roads. The Psynyde FURAN features fat tyres making it stable on extreme roads.
- Mountain bikes have heavy duty shock absorbers to handle rough terrain. For instance the Psynyde FURAN, comes with a 120mm front suspension fork, which is perfectly suited for extreme conditions.
- Mountain bikes operate on a lower gear ratio. This gives the rider more gear variations, making it possible to tame every terrain and condition, to a ride setting that offers you the most comfort. The FURAN comes equipped with a 24 speed on the Acera build, 27 on the Alivio and 30 on the Deore build.
- Braking – Mountain bikes have mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes, making them much safer for rough terrain. The beginner model, Acera, on the Psynyde FURAN has mechanical disc brakes. The Alivio and the Deore build, both come with Hydraulic brakes.
Key design features of the FURAN
The Frame Design:
The frame design of the Psynyde FURAN bikes have benefits of a long front triangle, short rear-end combined with a slack head angle. This design places the rider’s weight centrally on the frame allowing better control on rough terrain. The Psynyde FURAN comes with an aggressive off-road geometry. FURAN’s evolved design will speak for itself on the first ride!
The Tapered Headtube:
FURAN incorporates the newest upgrade in bicycle frame designs. The tapered head tube (1.5” lower and 1-1/8” upper) gives a stiffer yet lighter steering chassis compared to conventional headtube designs.
The Furan comes with a 800mm wide handlebar. Wider bars deliver quick steering and better control. Also, gives liberty to the rider to custom fit the cockpit according to their preference.
The Psynyde FURAN has a 50mm short reach stem. This allows for quick steering response and lesser rider weight over the front wheel.
The Psynyde FURAN has a 120mm suspension fork. This is specifically designed to enhance the riding experience. We have also incorporated a 15mm thru axle ‘Manitou Minute Comp (Air)’ fork in the Psynyde Deore. No other Indian manufacturer is currently utilising the benefits of a thru axle fork on a hardtail. Combined with a tapered headtube.
Rider's view about the FURAN
"The 1st thing that grabs your attention about the Furan are its slack angles. It's built to descend...Classical good looks and a neat build, this bike is going places...FAST." - Michael McLean (Internationally acclaimed MTB trail expert, Founder of Mountain bike Kerala).
“The aggressive angles and long travel fork on Furan makes it a blaze on the rough descents. Can’t wait to take it on my rally trails!” - Harith Noah (Indian National Motocross Champion)
“Riding the Furan on our enduro trails at Ski Himalayas Park in Solang, our test crew went crazy monkey! The frame geometry got us pushing ourselves on gnarly trails we would usually save for our full suspension bikes.”
- Vineet Sharma (Editor – Freerider Mountain Bike Magazine)
“A well thought out bike, from Geometry, to construction, to components. built by bikers for bikers - Finally a bike i can buy off the rack! Love the Stiffer, shorter Chain stays, and quick handling with a short stem. Truly a modern MTB!”
- Rahul Mulani (Pioneer of BMX in India)

The Psynyde Story
Every rider, pro or amateur, has a different need to be able to extract the most from their bikes and succeed. Back in 2000, such customisation was not available for the Indian mountain bikers. Psynyde is the only Indian bicycle brand that understood this need. Over the years, we have worked closely with several international riders and Indian athletes to design, engineer and test PsynydeFURAN's concepts for the Indian bicycle market. And now, we want to bring our expertise to mainstream
The Future for Psynyde
We believe the output of rider centric design is essential to improve rider and machine compatibility. In order to achieve this, we need our bicycles to be readily available for the growing Indian market. In the first phase, these bicycles will be available with leading retailers of performance bicycles spread across Tier 1 Cities in India. Namely Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Pune.
We also intend to grow the sport by promoting local talented athletes, organising races and events. Psynyde is actively invested in growing the cycling community in India. We have partnered with downhill mountain biking races in India over the last 5 years. Our Team Riders have raced and won major Indian and participated in various international events. We want to develop this young talent into world class athletes.

When are you planning to build a batch of bikes?
We are moving towards building a batch of bikes which will be available in select dealer stores.
Do you sell Frames Only of your batch bikes?
As frame builders we take great pride in our frames. Our frames are available to customers as a frame only option. This is a great way to experience the Psynyde Design philosophy while using the good things from your old bicycle
If you are looking for a Frame Only option, consider these points:
* Have an existing bicycle with good components?
* Looking for a high degree of customization and selective components?
* Progression in riding style but existing frame geometry is not capable?
Buying a frame does allow you to customize your build, which is a key advantage for buying a frame instead of a full bike.
You could have your own reasons for trying out the Frame only option. We are here to help you evaluate whether it’s the best choice for you. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
How do I know if one of your batch bikes will fit me?
This is actually pretty easy to figure out based on your measurements and the measurements of the frame, you can always email us if you’re unsure.
What warranty do you offer?
Lifetime warranty for custom frames & 3 Years warranty from Invoice date for stock bicycle frames.
The warranty is only valid to the original purchaser within India and does not include:
- Accidental damage
- Wear & tear
- Corrosion caused by inadequate maintenance
- Neglect or misuse
In the unlikely event that you have a problem with your frame please talk to us first. If a return is necessary we will make an appointment for you to bring your frame, or you can send it to us. If sending, you must pay packaging & logistics. Any work carried out to the frame by a third party invalidates the warranty.
