Cinelli x Elley Kishimoto

by

Cinelli is very proud to announce it’s involvement in Eley Kishimoto’s FLASH ON project. The project began with the designers Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto interest in our classic Supercorsa Model..

This starting point grounded the project: the Cinelli Supercorsa is a very concrete piece of cycling’s cultural heritage, the longest running production model in the history of road cycling. It is a product by now more akin to a Carlo Barbera yarn than a bicycle simply for the elaborate cycle, and rarity of the techniques, used in its construction.
Knowing this, Eley Kishimoto, with typical playful antagonism, decided to paint “over” the original design, disguising the elaborate details (chromed lugs, pinstripe graphics, proprietary fastback stays)in their signature “Flash” pattern, producing a sort of visual double-take: you-see-it-you-don’t-see-it.

Wow, this looks awesome… a decent side on photograph would be nice though.
