Range Rover Evoque Bicycle

It is not uncommon for automotive design teams to expand beyond their vehicular pursuits. For example, you can buy a entire host of different Ferrari and Porsche design products that range from electronics to luggage. The first such product inspired by the Range Rover Evoque is a bicycle produced by Karbona, a manufacturer of high-end bicycle, motorcycle, and sporting components. The Range Rover Evoque bicycle was created under the direction of Gerry McGovern, design director of Land Rover’s design team.

“I wanted to create the ultimate accessory for the Range Rover Evoque – and what could be more perfect than an utterly contemporary, beautifully designed, bespoke Evoque bike. Like the Range Rover Evoque, the bike not only looks fantastic but is precision engineered for ultimate performance, ” said McGovern.

Clean, Cool, and Utterly Contemporary

The Range Rover Evoque bike is described as being “clean, cool, and utterly contemporary.” We don’t know much anything about bicycles, but it sounds like an apt description of this two-wheeled Evoque. The monocoque frame is constructed of high modulus (high strength) carbon fiber with the seat tube section integrated into the frame for weight savings. The oversized carbon fiber handlebar stem supports alloy handlebars wrapped with padded grip tape enhanced with silicone gel. Gearing is provided by a 20-gear Shimano Ultegra system with bearings that are integrated into the frame to reduce drag. Final touches includes a carbon fiber steering fork, saddle upholstered in leather, and Range Rover branding.

Unfortunately, the contest expires on the 15th and U.S. residents were out of luck anyway. The competition was open only to UK residents above the age of 18.
