Big time brand boosting.
From a brand strategy to award-winning product design, MAGURA is energised,.
Generating long term buy-in.
MAGURA’s market share increased with riders, dealers, and manufacturers.
Integrating Product Experience Design and Brand Communication, KISKA translates MAGURA’s engineer expertise into a profitable brand and award winning products.
Building on a 125-year history of quality products and trust.
For decades, MAGURA was the unchallenged manufacturer of high quality performance components. Benefitting from experience building motorcycle parts, MAGURA also made e-bike products. These products, like brakes, were renowned for their engineering and ability to handle extreme forces.
With MAGURA products in such good shape, it was time for the brand itself to achieve the same level of distinction.
Creating a comeback and building a lasting presence.
MAGURA’s comeback started with analysis of the brand, market and megatrends, which prepared us for interviews with experts, insiders, dealers and riders. Their perceptions clarified MAGURA’s position and potential. Taking on a competitive role in the e-mobility industry relied on a recognisable and desirable brand.
“As our strategic lead agency KISKA has the business vision and hands-on design approach to lead us into the future.”
Michael Funk I MAGURA Director
Designing a 360° impact, from the inside out.
Long-term success of MAGURA’s brand relaunch relied on everyone becoming believers in their strategy and claim, “Performance Components.” In and outside of the company. The strategy had two phases. First, an internal brand rollout at MAGURA to ensure employees loved and lived the brand. Then MAGURA launched its new brand design, communication tools and storytelling style at the Eurobike tradeshow.
“Leader status is central to the future strategy and success of MAGURA’s holding company MAGENWIRTH.”
Ralph Berndt | MAGENWIRTH Technologies Group CFO
After relaunch, MAGURA’s market share increased amongst riders, dealers and bicycle manufacturers. Mountain Bike Magazine readers voted MAGURA “Comeback of the Year”. The BOLTRON Upside-Down Fork, the first product launched from the partnership, won a 2017 iF Product Design Award.
