Want to guarantee your bike will stand out at the trailhead? These two extremely limited options will make sure of that – and not just because they’re both bright red. If you’ve earned the title of hypebeast, or are just a Sriracha super fan, these hot new options should be pretty tasty. Assuming you can find one.
When it comes to branding for the sake of branding, no one does it better than Supreme. The company literally slaps their name on just about anything, sells it for a fairly high amount, and then the aftermarket prices skyrocket as devoted fans try to add to their red-clad collections. Their branding is so pervasive that it’s inspired youtube legends like Tabasko Sweet to offer tutorials on how to make your own DIY Supreme Branded products like their infamous brick. Just remember, no dead giveaways.
However, if you want the real thing, you might be able to get your hands on the new Supreme x Santa Cruz Chameleon. It’s like a normal Chameleon, but like, with red paint and a Supreme logo on the downtube. Part of their Fall/Winter 2018 collection, the complete bike is built with 27.5″ wheels and tires, a SRAM 1x drivetrain, Rock Shox suspension, Race Face Aeffect cranks with Chester pedals, and SRAM Level brakes. Supreme doesn’t list a retail price, but it’s reportedly somewhere around $2,500. That’s if you can actually find one in the store. Apparently something like 100 models were made for Supreme stores, but it’s far more likely that if you want one you’ll have to resort to buying it off eBay – for a substantial upcharge. There are two currently listed for a whopping $9,999.88 or $15,000. For that price, you’d be far better off calling up your boy Nate AKA Tabasko Sweet and figuring out how to paint a standard Chameleon yourself for some DIY clout.
This limited edition Orbea OIZ with a Sriracha themed paint job probably won’t be much easier to cop, but at least it carries the same price tag as other MyO custom Orbeas.
Dripping in Sriracha red and topped with green accents, the bike is playful take on one of our favorite hot chili sauces. Limited to just five bikes, the Sriracha OIZ is available as a frame only for $3,499. We’re told that if you want to order your own, you should (quickly) head to your local Orbea dealer.
