Mercedes’ new limit­ededi­tion bike is a lit­tle bit spe­cial

Emirates Man - - CONTENTS -

Cy­cling? In June? Mad­ness you say. Well, tech­ni­cally yes, we know that the mer­cury’s ris­ing rapidly across the Mid­dle East, but when you’re rid­ing a bike that looks this good, we’re will­ing to make the sacri ce.

In­spired by the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the Mercedes AMG-GT car, the GT S bike is a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ger­man com­pany Rotwild, and been con­structed by way of ex­pert in­put from some of the world’s top ath­letes.

Limited to only 100 mod­els, it’s hand­crafted and made of light­weight car­bon bre com­pos­ite com­po­nents, and has multi-shift Shi­mano XTR drive tech­nol­ogy that al­lows sev­eral gears to be shifted in se­quence. It also boasts a For­mula 33 fac­tory rac­ing fork and For­mula 21 hy­draulic dics breaks.

Fi­nally, for all the col­lec­tors out there you’ll nd a spe­cially mounted badge on the frame de­tail­ing ex­actly which num­ber of the 100 you own.
