Carbon fiber is one of the hallmarks of luxury in the automotive world, and now that principle is being applied to bicycles by an unusual source: French high-fashion retailer Hermès.
The brand best known for luxury accessories is getting into the carbon fiber bike game with two different models: Le Flâneur d’Hermès and Le Flâneur sportif d’Hermès. And each bicycle boasts sturdy construction, either eight or eleven gears, and the brand’s signature elegance.
The carbon fiber Hermès bicycles will also carry characteristically lofty price tags. Starting in November, the bikes will be available from Hermès locations all over the world for around $11,000. But it doesn’t cost anything to get a good look at the bikes in the gallery above.
