Range Rover Evoque Bicycle Concept - Web Exclusive

The newest member of the Range Rover Evoque family broke cover at the Geneva Auto Show.

Mar 3, 2011

Created by the Land Rover design team, headed by director Gerry McGovern, the Evoque bike is a machine designed to deliver fast, agile and secure road-racing performance.

The central element is a high-modulus carbon-fiber monocoque frame, crafted by Karbona using techniques derived from Formula 1. The oversized carbon handlebar stem and aerospace alloy handlebars were specified to complement the rest of the bicycle, and are engineered to cope with the high torque developed by top-class cyclists, ensuring control at high speeds.

The advanced composite construction allowed the seat tube section to be integrated into the frame, saving weight and extending the clean design. The steering components are color-matched to the frame, which carries Range Rover and Evoque graphics. The transmission is a 20-gear Shimano Ultegra system.

The steering bearings are integrated into the head of the frame to reduce drag and the steering fork is also made of carbon fiber.

Echoing the attention to luxury detailing that is fundamental to all Range Rover products, the drivetrain and braking systems are finished in matching black chrome, while the saddle is upholstered in fine leather, with padded grip tape enhanced with silicone gel.

The wheels were specially commissioned for the Evoque project and have a strong visual impact. Formed from aero-profiled carbon fiber, they have a deep section designed to cut through the air while maintaining stability. Secure performance is further supported by the tire tread, which is constructed from triple-density rubber with hard-wearing and high-grip qualities.

Gerry McGovern, a keen cyclist himself, said: "I wanted to create the ultimate accessory for the Range Rover Evoque - and what could be more perfect than an utterly contemporary, bespoke Evoque bike?"
