Audi hardwood bicycle

Mon, 04 Apr 2011 00:00:00 -0700

Following on from its collaboration with Head for carbon fiber skis, Audi has teamed up with Renovo Hardwood Bicycles to create yet another performance-oriented product.

Audi is launching the Duo range of cycles as β€˜an embodiment of its core principles of progressive innovation' that aim to blend craftsmanship and styling with performance and technology.

As a result, each Duo is built around a monocoque frame that is made from hardwood, which not only increases ride comfort – thanks to the material's ability to absorb shock and vibration – but also serves to reduce weight.

The City, Sport and Road range of bicycles also feature an extensive list of technology-laden attributes, such as composite components, LED lighting and internal hub gearing, as well as belt-driven cranksets on the City and Sport models.

The Duo is said to echo elements of Audi road cars, with a focus on both performance aspects as well as sustainability – the cycles are both recyclable and biodegradable.

Prices for the Duo range begin at $6,530. For more information, click through to the Renovo website here.
