Affinity Cycles for RLX Sep 8, 2010

RLX_Affinity-01-PINP.jpg

RLX is Ralph Lauren‘s sportswear line. Athletic wear that is clean and simple. Aesthetics in fashion mean everything and when the design team at RLX had the opportunity to approach a cycling company to build bikes for their showroom, they went to the same shop that supplied many of their own bicycles, Affinity Cycles. Shown here is one of two RLX Concept bikes, a Kissena track. Only for display purposes, this bike uses the pantones of the RLX clothing and speaks the same language as the RLX sportswear.

Below is the Affinity Low-Pro, dressed in olive, neon yellow and brown.

Thanks to the guys at Affinity and RLX for getting me the photos! Once the bikes are in the showroom, I’ll get some photos taken to post. More people on bikes!

    Kissena looks doper than I thought it ever could with an Aerospokle!

    Good job Jay!

    I am not a fan of ‘spokes but that top build is clean even with the ‘spoke!

    After reading that bit, I had to check the date to make sure today wasn’t April 1st.

    Aerospokes in neon colors make me sick…however this is a pretty nice concept.

  • J. Toosoon

    I know they’re your homies and all…but your wtf-flag should be flying high right now.

    The last thing in the world I ever wanted was an aerospoke wheel on my bikes. Come on that should be the given!!!

  • Andrew

    The lo-pro build would be so great if it used a yellow Deep V or something instead of the ‘spok and a shallower wheel up front. I love the colours and the fact that it doesn’t have the seatpost jacked up to the sky or a million spacers under the stem like far too many Affinity lo-pro builds.

    whatever dude, you have like 100000000 Aerospokes at the shop!

    the dark green would have been added to my bike porn collection, had the aero not been there. whats up with all these goofy random collabs lately? Greddy x Volume, now Affinity x Ralph Lauren?

    im surprised not to see the term “colorway” anywhere in this postway.

    The Kissena is now in the room directly above where i’m working at the Polo Mansion at 867 Madison ave. I’ve been meaning to sneak a spy shot since they won’t allow customers/ tourists/ etc any photos in the store.

  • Phil G.

    I came sooo close to doing a olive green powdercoat on my lo pro before I sold it. If you cover up the aerospoke, I love the rest of it!

  • R120

    What a load of crap

  • mike

    wow. bullshit. affinity should have told polo to suck it. additionally: “Aesthetics in fashion mean everything”. what does that mean? someone didn’t get into F.I.T. this pile of sellout crap has absolutely zero to do w/cool bikes or anything else interesting for that matter. wtf

  • justin

    why does everyone pee their pants about aerospokes these days?
