Yoshi Nishikawa – Founder, Designer and Frame Builder at Kualis Cycles.
Architect turned frame builder, Yoshi honed his skills in as frame builder with Level Tokyo and Seven Cycles, Massachusettes USA specialising in titanium builds. Having spent 7 years at Seven Cycles, he honed his welding skills to eventually become the lead welder there. But the home calling proved too hard to resist and Yoshi soon left USA to go back to Wakayama City, near Osaka, Japan. And there he welded under his own name, Kualis Cycles by Yoshi Nishikawa.
Each piece is personally hand-crafted in Japan. The titanium frames are bead blasted, brushed and polished with beautifully anodised finish for a stunning look. The famous ‘stacked-dime welds’ is employed in each of the titanium frame he builds. Yoshi also builds in steel as well. Yoshi has also started anodizing titanium frames and this has creatively added color patterns in perfect blend with the brushed-titanium look. He has also started designing 3D titanium dropouts so watch out for that too. Kualis also build their own titanium seatpost, stem and seatpost collar. Kualis = Quality and that’s what you get in this top-end titanium or steel build.
