Aston Martin reveals ‘the world’s most bespoke, advanced and meticulously engineered road bicycle’

Luxury car brand Aston Martin collaborated with J. Laveracka titanium specialist, to create a bespoke and premium road bike that can be made to the exact measurements of any rider.

The bike is based on a frame that consists of 3D printed titanium lugs that are joined with carbon fiber tubes. This construction method allows different tube lengths to be fitted, as well as special angles to the frame to be tweaked in the design software before printing.

If you are interested in acquiring one of these bikes, after the purchase each owner will receive an invitation to the headquarters of Aston Martin in Gaydon in the United Kingdom for a complete adjustment. Here you will be measured to have the bike custom made to your specifications.

Customers can select the exact color palette and trim choices available on Aston Martin cars, giving them the opportunity to match car and bike.

Potential buyers can test what their bike might look like via Aston Martin’s free online configuration site. This will allow you to select the color of the forks, tubes, lugs and stem of the bike, along with the saddle and bar tape.
