VANDEYK Contemporary Cycles unveils their new bicycle collection ‘Purple Blast’. With their second collection, the creative bicycle designhouse continues to explore the intersection between design, art, handbuilt bicycles and photography. Set up as a curated, multidisciplinary collaboration of experts, VANDEYK aspires to build and stage functional art objects on two wheels – without any compromises.  ‘Purple Blast’ is inspired by a solar flare, transferred in dashing purple colours. ‘Pruple Blast’ is a performance-oriented road bike, featuring Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting technology with fully integrated wiring. The material for the frames is Columbus XCr stainless steel, fully handcrafted in Germany. Further components for the bicycles are by premium manufacturers such as Chris King or ENVE Composites. The paint is applied in a highly sophisticated process by a paint shop usually working for well-known super-sports car manufacturers. The collection is strictly limited to 25 hand numbered bicycles.
