Chrome Artist Series: NOA Yalta Backpack

Chrome’s newest Artist series features Japanese artist NOA and a Yalta backpack.

“Typically using oil and acrylic paint on canvas or wood, he’s known for painting live with a style that emulates Japanese line-making. Each piece of art is influenced by the music he chooses to play as he paints, with most of his inspiration is deeply rooted in hip-hop and graffiti. NOA- created this artwork based on the Japanese phrase, “黒霧” that translates phonetically to Kuromu (sounds like Chrome!) and means Black Fog.

These one-of-a-kind Yalta bags come from a 4′ x 12′ canvas and acrylic painting NOA- made. Each of the 8 bags represents a specific segment of the painting where the Black Fog takes on a unique energy of its own. Our Artist Series is produced as a limited run. Once they are gone, they’re gone.”

Snow Peak and Muller: Stainless Steel Touring Bike

My favorite camping / outdoors company, Snow Peak has collaborated with Japanese frame builder Muller on a Reynolds 931 stainless light touring frame.

This S&S coupler frame is currently being offered in three build kits, either with Shimano Dura Ace / Di2 or Campagnolo Veloce and it comes ready to be loaded! This might be one of the most tricked-out light touring / camping bike collaborations to date.

Bombtrack for Adidas: Street Crew Bags and Track Bike

This is by no means the first time a sneaker and bicycle company have worked together on a project, although I do think this capsule collection looks cohesive and clean. Bombtrack was approached by Adidas to design and produce 50 track bikes to coincide with the forthcoming Adidas Street Crew bag line.

These bikes can only be seen in a selected 32 Adidas Flagship Stores throughout Europe and Asia.

Manual for Speed and ICNY

Manual for Speed and ICNY

Manual for Speed has taken their brand into design territory that most “cycling brands” wouldn’t touch and I love it!

“Manual for Speed partners up with ICNY Sport, again, on an evolution of the SPEED concept. Based on Op Art, the graphic treatment embeds the word SPEED in a series of contradicting lines and then repeats. Using reflective inks, the shirt and bandana provide visibility for the athlete, commuter or flash-using-selfie-taker.”

Brooks Welcomes Framebuilders at B1866

I like this idea a whole lot! One of the most original frame builders of all time will be at the Brooks B1866 shop in Seven Dials, London next week. The saddle manufacturer is opening their doors to Dario Pegoretti to fit potential customers for a bike and to celebrate his new collaboration Brooks Cambium Saddle. Sounds pretty rad right? I wish I could be there to see this!

Check out the press-release below with all the juicy details and more photos of this wild bike!

Outlier and Vans

This one came way out of left field but it looks great! Outlier and Vans collaborated on the Submarine Bedford sneaker:

“One of the dirty little secrets behind Outlier is just how committed we are to delivering value to our customers. We love working with the best materials (which are often very expensive) so it’s not always obvious, but we’re always pushing to deliver incredible quality at the best possible price. So when we got an opportunity to work with Vans on a shoe… well damn, not only did a lot of us grow up wearing Vans, but it was also a chance to make a great shoe at a really accessible price, so we didn’t hesitate.

Outlier meets Vans, the Supermarine Bedford. Water resistant Supermarine Cotton®, stainless steel hardware, pigskin cupped insoles, and of course a Vans OTW vulcanized waffle sole. $90. Available now.
