Skoda presents new 2012 bicycle range in racing look

Article by Christian A., on May 30, 2012

Skoda Auto’s bicycle range for 2012 is designed to play up the brand's involvement with motorsport since 111 years ago. This cycling sport offering comes with matching sportswear. Skoda made use of an exclusive ‘racing' design for this season. This is quite reflective of the success achieved by Skoda Motorsport's team.

The new bicycle range for the year 2012 comprises seven models for different range of use and age groups. All bikes are coloured green and white as is typical for the Skoda Motorsport team. The bikes' appearance also echoes Skoda brand's new, fresh corporate design.

The ambassadors for the 2012 Skoda bicycle and accessory range have been recently named -- Juho Hänninen and Jan Kopecký. Jan Kopecký, the driver in the Skoda Motorsport works team and IRC vice champion in 2009, 2010 und 2011, said that bicycles represent an “essential part” of training.

He said that since several hundred kilometres are clocked before each race, a lot of value is placed on workmanship, functionality and an ageless look. He said that this is the essence of Skoda bicycles and the new functional wear. The 2012 lineup includes models that are based on the ‘Superior' brand. Street racers are likely to ask for the 8.4 kilogram Skoda ‘Road' with an aluminium frame and carbon fork.

What bike enthusiasts would love when riding off the asphalt are either the Skoda ‘MTB' model or the Skoda ‘MTB Full' with a full-suspension frame. The Skoda ‘Cross' is a flexible bike in the 2012 range.

All the models feature a bike in the 2012 range. All of the Skoda models are available with a lockable front fork. These also come in three sizes. However, the company didn’t forget about the kids. The Skoda ‘MTB-Junior' has the dimensions to accommodate a child but it features the technology of "adult" bikes.
