In 1998, mechanical engineer Niels Holme Larsen attended a bike exhibition in the heart of Copenhagen. The following day, a critic from the Danish newspaper Politiken concluded that bicycles would only be able to compete against cars when they could transport two children and groceries at the same time. After having read the review Niels decided to build such a bicycle, which resulted in the now well-known Nihola bikes.

Today, 18 years after, Nihola develops, produces, sells and provides service on proprietary tricycles for families, Rehab/handicap-, institutional- and commercial use.

The goal and vision of Nihola was then to become the market leader and innovator on the Danish market. With more than 10.000 Nihola bikes in Copenhagen alone this goal has been fulfilled. The goal and vision is now to stay competitive on the Danish market while obtaining higher market shares in Europe and North America - we currently have dealers in 35 European countries, Canada and the U.S.
