Hasa: Passion for Innovation
Hasa has quietly made a name for itself when it comes to producing bicycles for everyday use or for
competitive sport. The company’s drive can be simplified in one word: passion. Hasa started in the
1990s in Taiwan, from the company’s passion for bicycles. It was the first to introduce the folding bike to
the market, which was also Hasa’s first innovative endeavor. The folding bike was a success and the
company became a household name in Taiwan. But the best was yet to come, both in terms of Hasa’s
success and their drive to create more innovations in the bicycle industry.
Believing that the “soul” of the bicycle is its frame, Hasa developed carbon and Titanium frame for bikes.
Hasa bicycles with such frames were sturdier, had a better and lower center of gravity but still retained
their lightweight quality. And more importantly, the bikes satisfied the needs of the riders. With Hasa’s
taste for innovation, it was only a matter of time before it came up with another revolutionary concept
and indeed it did. It released the “Minimax” a Titanium and carbon folding bicycle.
Passion has never been a problem for Hasa. And its passion for innovative bicycles has allowed it to
cross international borders. Hasa has become the bicycle of choice for athletes and cycling enthusiasts
all over the world. Its bicycles took center stage in the recently concluded Taipei International Cycle
Show, which showcased bicycles and accessories from different manufacturers all over the world.
Today, Hasa continues its passion for bicycles and innovation. However, people in Qatar need not go to
Taiwan or fill in orders internationally. Hasa bicycles and parts are available in Qatar through its
distributors, Sports Corner. The leading sports retail company offers a variety of Hasa bikes and
accessories including one of the most sought after bicycles, the Shimano series.
The Shimano Deore, also known as the Gallant 5.0, boasts of a sturdy aluminum frame with a BB-92
Bottom Bracket, with the assembly firmly placed on the frame. The build assures great pedal feedback
and efficient energy transmission. The head tube design, shaped like a cone, gives the bike extra
strength which leads to higher stability when the rider makes a turn. The Gallant also has a post
mounted 74mm disc brakes that allows for a more direct and definitely safer braking system.
On the other hand, the Gallant 3.0, referred to as the Shimano Acera + Altus, has an Aluminum 6061
frame, a Spinner 300 fork and a 27 speed shifter system. It weighs around 18 pounds and comes in
several colors. There is also the Gallant 9.0, with a similar frame but with a Rockshox 30 Gold fork and a
30 speed shifter system. The Gallant 9.0 has an integrated seat tube and top for added rigidity and style.
Other Hasa bicycles, like the Shimano Sora, T-9 and the R-Series are available in Sports Corner stores.
