One of the rarest purebred horses in the world: the Akhal-Teke, is the inspiration behind this striking bicycle from Extans. The horse is known for its endurance, intelligence, and distinctive dark sheen and its namesake emulates these values and features a lightweight rigid carbon fiber monocoque structure for a smooth, comfortable ride. The rest of the Shadow edition's parts are CNC machined from a single aluminum billet. It weighs in at just under 21 pounds and also boasts Shimano brakes, a Gates Carbon transmission, and sits on reliable Pirelli tires. The Akhal Shadow edition is limited to only 99 units which are not likely to last.
