Cinelli x Elley Kishimoto

September 16, 2010

Cinelli is very proud to announce it’s involvement in Eley Kishimoto’s FLASH ON project. The project began with the designers Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto interest in our classic Supercorsa Model..

This starting point grounded the project: the Cinelli Supercorsa is a very concrete piece of cycling’s cultural heritage, the longest running production model in the history of road cycling. It is a product by now more akin to a Carlo Barbera yarn than a bicycle simply for the elaborate cycle, and rarity of the techniques, used in its construction.
Knowing this, Eley Kishimoto, with typical playful antagonism, decided to paint “over” the original design, disguising the elaborate details (chromed lugs, pinstripe graphics, proprietary fastback stays)in their signature “Flash” pattern, producing a sort of visual double-take: you-see-it-you-don’t-see-it.

Wow, this looks awesome… a decent side on photograph would be nice though.

Vans Supercorsa Italian Cycles.

March 24, 2010

A model which saw an introduction into the Vans Vault roster last season, the Supercorsa makes an appearance yet again, this time as part of the Vans California Collection. Presented within Vans’ “Italian Cycles” Collection, this new pack showcases the Supercorsa in an all-canvas motif, with each colorway representing specific honors per Italian cyclists. Featured is the white jersey (Best Young Rider), Rose (Leader-Champion), Green (King of the Mountains), Pink (Best Sprinter), and black (Last Place). Look for these to drop in July of 2010.

Looking good. Via Hypebeast.

Mike Giant produced a nice graphic, showing off his ‘64 Black Cinelli Super-Corsa bike and offered it to the Italian bike maker. They liked it so much, that they will soon be releasing it as a limited edition poster.
