The internationally renowned designer Philippe Starck is diving into the bicycle world. In partnership with the French manufacturer Moustache Bikes, the designer is launching the unique M.A.S.S. (Mud, Asphalt, Sand and Snow) collection of electrically powered bicycles.
A fan of cycling himself, Mr. Starck has sought to reinvent electrically powered bicycles by putting them through every test, all while giving them an incomparable design.
All-terrain, the Mud is elegant and discrete, and offers the last generation of Shimano XTR components. The quite urbane Asphalt emphasizes comfort with its dual suspension and electronic transmission. An unusual bicycle is the Sand, which has nonstandard tires that can handle the most beautiful biking beaches. The Snow with its glacier touches has been optimized for snow clearance.
A unique and high-end collection bearing the signature Philippe Starck, where designers of electrically powered bicycles are always exploring new terrain.
