The Propain Bicycles brand was founded in 2006 by Markus Zander and Robert Krauss. In 2012, David Assfalg joined as another shareholder and took over the management. This was accompanied by a temporary relocation of the company headquarters from Gustavsburg to Ravensburg and then to Vogt as well as the conversion of the sales concept to direct sales.

The first mountain bike from Propain Bicycles, which has been available since 2008, was the downhill bike "Rage". Since then, the product range has expanded, so that Propain Bicycles now produces various models for All Mountain, Enduro, Freeride and Downhill as well as cutting edge E-Bikes. The distribution continues to take place exclusively through online. Since 2020, Propain Bicycles have also been available in North America.
