New Yorkers know a thing or two about how to navigate a city: For pure efficiency, a bike is where it’s at. Bonus points as a means of soaking up the cultural vibe. The Redux 2 Staple Edition is a limited-run collaboration with some in-the-know New Yorkers: Staple Design Studio.
Designed to withstand daily use, the Redux 2 is built on a lightweight aluminum frame and fork. The Staple Edition features textured areas on the frame for added grip when tackling staircases. You get a simple 1x9 drivetrain plus hydraulic disc brakes for optimal stopping power in wet or dirty conditions. Nimble like a mountain bike but made for the street, the Redux 2 is the ultimate versatile machine to take on your city.
Q & A with @jeffstaple:
Why did you choose the Redux for this project?
Because I’m from NYC, I wanted to work on a bike model that could handle everything this urban jungle throws at it! Instead of “flashy" or “pretty,” I need a workhorse beast.
What was the biggest challenge in working with a bike as your canvas?
To be honest, I love me a good design challenge. I like that I had to think about the tubular shape of the frames, the different metal finishes and also consider that most people will view this design while it is in motion.
Is there anything else you'd like people to know about this project?
I find beauty in grit. While some take extreme care of their possessions, I like to wear them in and almost abuse them! Sneakers? Worn. Luggage? Dented. Watches? Scratched. And Bikes? Bikes should be covered in grit. So we designed the Redux 2 Staple Edition to already have that look, then added the classic colors of our trademark Pigeon icon.
