From Philippe Starck, an e-bike for every terrain
The multi-gifted French designer Philippe Starck has unveiled four specialised bicycles for four uniquely demanding environments.
Starck’s MASS collection (that’s Mud, Asphalt, Sand and Snow), broke cover on 27 August at Germany’s Eurobike 2014 bicycle trade fair. Along with the bikes, the collection includes a range of complementary gear — colour-coordinated helmets, gloves, glasses and backpacks.
