Skoda Racing Look Bicycle

Skoda Auto unveiled a new line of its bicycles painted din the same sort of livery as their Fabia rally car.

The new bicycle range for the year 2012 comprises seven models for different range of use and age groups. All bikes are coloured green and white as is typical for the SKODA Motorsport team. The bikes’ appearance also echoes SKODA brand’s new, fresh corporate design. The current 2012 design highlights the brand’s involvement with motorsport which dates back all of 111 years. The 2012 SKODA range also offers functional and comfortable bike wear from KalaS company in SKODA AUTO’s exclusive design.

More and more car makers are offering bicycles these days, probably to compensate for their gas guzzling models. Skoda’s offering look cool and are more affordable than Audi’s or Mercedes’.


Details in Skoda press release:

The two drivers from the SKODA Motorsport works team, Juho H?nninen and Jan Kopeck?, have been named ambassadors for the 2012 SKODA bicycle and accessory range. “Though hardly anyone is aware of this, bicycles are an essential part of our training,” says Jan Kopeck?, driver in the SKODA Motorsport works team and IRC vice champion in 2009, 2010 und 2011. “Before every race, we clock up several hundred kilometres. This is why I really value workmanship, functionality and timeless appearance, and this is what SKODA bicycles and the new functional wear are all about.”

The offering for 2012 includes models based on the ‘Superior’ brand. Street racers will opt for the 8.4 kilogram SKODA ‘Road’ with an aluminium frame and carbon fork. Off the asphalt, bike fans will be riding the SKODA ‘MTB’ model or even the SKODA ‘MTB Full’ with a full-suspension frame. The SKODA ‘Cross’ is a versatile bike in the 2012 range. All these SKODA models come with a lockable front fork and are available in three sizes.

But SKODA AUTO also has the little bikers in mind: the older ones might zoom off on the SKODA ‘MTB-Junior’, which is dimensioned to fit a child but has all the technology of “adult” bikes. This includes a lockable front fork or a 21-speed transmission. Even smaller children can cycle safely on two wheels with the SKODA ‚Kid‘. An all-new item in the range designed especially for the youngest children is the SKODA ‘Mini’ training bike, which was designed completely afresh in cooperation with Olpran, a bicycle maker.
