Specialized’s jaw dropping Sagan ‘Deconstructivism’ collection

Straight after the launch of the new Tarmac SL7 comes the latest Sagan collection featuring eye catching finishes

Peter Sagan is not known for being the wallflower of the pro peloton and is without doubt one of the largest personalities to be associated with cycle racing. Admired as much for his slightly outlandish personal style as his prodigious race winning talent, he has, for the past few seasons, partnered with long time sponsor Specialized to create a unique ‘collection’ of bikes, frames and accessories.

The fruits of this latest collaboration has resulted in a collection called ‘Deconstructivism’. In this collection the theme was set to create designs and colour schemes that represent the smashing of the rainbow, symbolising how Sagan as a rider is not just to be defined by his remarkable back-to-back world championship wins (and associated rainbow jerseys).

The results have to be seen up close to get an idea of how iridescent and packed full of colour each item is – quite literally made up of a smashed rainbow. Describing the colours and unique process to achieve these chameleon designs, Erik Nohlin, our Equipment Design Leader says, “It’s electric. It looks like a render in real life, it has such depth. I’m still stunned every time I look at it.”
