Art Of The Ride

Le Flâneur d’Hermès


November will herald the arrival of two ultra-lightweight carbon fitting bicycles hitting Hermès stores worldwide. Le Flaneur d’Hermès and Le Flaneur Sportif d’Hermès, a unisex leisure and a sport city bicycle, will be available in three sizes -S, M, L- and two colors -Charcoal and Blanc d’Espagne, and Le Flaneur Sportif d’Hermès will also be available in a sporty shade of Red. Both of the bikes which have been hand-made in France by TIME, a French manufacturer of bicycles and cycling equipment founded by Roland Cattin in 1987, will feature a shock-absorbing monobloc frame, belt-driven transmission, bull leather on contact points such as the handlebar grips, saddle and carry handle, hydraulic disc brakes and a choice of 8 or 11 gears integrated into the rear wheel hub. The Hermès bicycle design reflects the craftsmanship that one has come to invariably expect of a luxury house of this standing. Of course, due to its origins as a master saddler, the saddles on these bikes are going to be the most comfortable in the world! Combining exquisite, elegant lines with cutting-edge technology, beautifully. Parisian Style. Love.
