“Attention to detail, design and technology is integral when we develop our cars. We created the Allebike Alpha Polestar edition in the same spirit. Together with the great team at Allebike, we have crafted the perfect mountain bike for those who appreciate both a great ride and great design”, says Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar and bicycle enthusiast.
The limited-edition mountain bike is a special version of the versatile Alpha model from Allebike. The bespoke light-weight and rigid carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) frame is co-engineered and co-designed by Polestar and Allebike and offers a solid and responsive ride. With modern geometry, developed for the popular “downcountry” class, the bike is ready to tackle any terrain,” Polestar said.
The Allebike Alpha Polestar edition is perfectly colour coordinated with Polestar cars and will only be available in two matte exterior metallic colors, Snow and Space. Unique to the limited-edition mountain bike, dampers and details are painted in Swedish gold, the same color that characterizes the Performance Pack available for Polestar 2.
