Once again, Manual For Speed is having a bike party and has invited all kinds of cool kids to it. Introducing Manual For Speed’s Artist in Residency Volume One, a series of kits designed by artists in the theme of “Chaoscolormotiontrajectory” (explained after the jump). The kits are manufactured by Castelli and new artists will roll out their take on the theme all Summer long. And, like anything from MFS, there are healthily ridiculous photoshoots involved. Roll on up to the craziest kit party of the summer after the jump…
This isn’t the first time Manual for Speed has smashed the art and cycling world together, having invited artists and bike and component manufacturers to dance in the Reach for the Dream campaign earlier this year. In Chaoscolormotiontrajectory, five contemporary artists were each given this brief:
“The Greatest Spectacle on Earth is so much more than bike racing but bike racing is in fact the heart & soul of the Greatest Spectacle on Earth. But what is it about bike racing that we love so much, is it the Chaos, the Color, the Motion and the Trajectory? Yeah, it’s that. Interpret that.”
And interpret they did.
The two artists have been released so far: Mike Perry (top images) and Jerry Inscoe. More will follow, including Zio Ziegler, Karan Singh, and Sigrid Calon. The kits are dynamic, colorful, and expressive- what Manual For Speed believes a cycling kit should be.
Watch for these to roll out in the coming weeks.
