De Rosa Metamorphosis Sport Utility Bike
It is quite difficult to imagine combining the refined qualities of a gentleman with the rugged, raw performance efficiency of an athlete, yet Metamorphosis seems to get the formula right. In an effort to marry sophistication with superbly powerful performance, De Rosa and Pininfarina bring to the world the planet’s first Sport Utility Bike. If there are SUVs on the road, why couldn’t there be SUBs on the bike trail?
Born with off-road adventurers and city traffic zoomers in mind, the Metamorphosis features a unique style that is as remarkable on the city streets as it is phenomenal in the off beaten backcountry. It provides a pleasant ride in the hustle and bustle of contemporary metropolises while retaining the raw power and ruggedness of a two-wheeled, pedal-powered off-roader. It’s the perfect bike for the refined gentleman who has an adventurist’s streak running through his blood.
A Shimano Alfine 8-Speed drivetrain provides the performance needed whether it is on the concrete jungles of the metropolis or the meteorite-riddled face of the wilderness. The monocoque carbon frame gives it remarkable lightweight characteristics that should be easy on the body while absorbing the full brunt of the earth underneath its 40-mm high profile wheels. Two setup options allow the Metamorphosis to transform from an urban warrior to an offroad conqueror.
Designed by Pininfarina in the tradition of classic exotic sports cars like the Hispano Suiza Coupe, the Cisitalia 202, and the Ferrari 212 among others, the Metamorphosis comes with its signature styling that is distinctly elegant and sophisticated. It doesn’t matter where the Metamorphosis’ wheels will be driven. Folks from across generations will surely admire its lines.
The Metamorphosis Sport Utility Bike is no doubt one of a kind. It’s a city dweller that thrives best in the untamed environments outside the city.
