A Father. A Son. And a Garage.

The story of how Sterka Concepts is born

Sterka Concepts was founded by father-son duo, Rick Wang and JJ Wang. Both share the common interest of cars, bikes, and “literally anything on wheels.” Tired and bored with the electric bikes they saw on the market, Rick and JJ decided one day in their garage to try and build their own electric bike, marking the inception of Sterka Concepts.

"Inspired by our experience and passion with RC racing and kit building, my father and I decided one day to apply that concept and make it into an eletric bike. That's when Sterka Concepts was born."

Both Rick and JJ are professional remote-control car racers who race at competitions around the world. Inspired by their careers in professional RC racing and their shared enjoyment of kit building, together they designed, created, and tested a high quality, powerful, modular electric bike, which would become the prototype for the Sterka M1. In that garage, they founded Sterka Concepts with the mission to create a personal and customized riding experience, without sacrificing quality, efficiency, or style.

Sterka Concepts is based in Los Angeles, California and is focused on introducing high-quality craftsmanship, innovative modular design, and high-performance features to anything with wheels, starting with the electric bike.

Sterka Concept’s first product, the Sterka M1, embodies its values and goals by offering riders the engaging experience of building and customizing their bike to their own specific preferences and needs. Riders then get to enjoy a powerful and exciting riding experience on their personal bike.

“We wanted to make a bike that was modular, electric, high performance, powerful, fast, and made out of the best quality components and parts. It had to be significantly better than every other bike out there.”
