Charge X Griffin Press Release
This season sees the launch of a brand new collaborative project between Charge bikes and menswear designer Jeff Griffin. Both urban innovators in their own worlds, the two brands have united to create a limited edition fixed gear bike, due for release in early September.
Situated just a few miles apart from each other in the West Country the two companies came together to create a bike with a difference for the fixed gear biking community. Charge?s signature single speed bike, the plug, quickly became the nominated frame of choice. With it?s minimalist design this new age, classic frame, welcomed Griffin?s innovative design approach.
Taking inspiration for his up an coming autumn/winter 09 collection from the cyclist and the path of commuting from the countryside to the city. Griffin is mixing country tweeds with urban city living, as the guys in Brick lane are bringing polo to their bikes in the East End, we are bringing the country to the city. Mixing technical fabrics with traditional wools to produce garments that have all the flexibility and functionality of a modern day cycling jacket but with the look of modern luxury sportswear.
The Griffin X Charge collaboration bike will be launched at the Eurobike exhibition on the 31st August 2009. These 500 limited edition bikes are now available to pre order from early October.
