the limited edition pininfarina ‘fuoriserie’ electric bicycle is styled by the tailor-made cars of the 1930s and creates an elegant blend of modern and classical materials. the italian automotive company collaborated with 43 milano to enhance their experience and craftsmanship for bike manufacture. as its high-performance exclusive car referring name would suggest, the ‘fuoriserie’ is a blend of tradition and innovation. the booster system bike+ shows this by optimizing the cyclist’s energy through a miniaturized electric engine which enables them to cover longer distances. another advanced technology addition is the LED lighting and the ‘connect the plug system’ which recharges phones through the dynamo.

the bespoke bicycle is limited to just 30 editions because of the high level of detail and care needed for its hand manufacturing. skilled artists form the chromed steel deda ZERO DR tubes by welding and then adorning them in a walnut briar-root coating. the handlebars and the seat both source style from the 1936 lancia astura bocca interiors by being dressed with an interlaced the bridge leather. the ‘fuoriserie’ bicycle’s classical style enriched with modern technology and materials are balanced in a way which shows the care and detail in craftsmanship that pininfarina is renown for.
