French luxury label Hermès has roots in the equestrian world, but the days of horse rides to the grocery store are a thing of the past. Accordingly, the brand is set to introduce a contemporary mode of transportation: two carbon fiber bikes. Though it won’t exactly fit in your closet, expect Hermès’ bike options to be just as luxurious as its apparel offerings. Both lightweight carbon fiber frames – Le Flâneur d’Hermès and Le Flâneur sportif d’Hermès – come with bull calf leather on the saddles, not to mention carry handles and a luggage rack standard. Designed to provide a safe, cushioned ride, the bike also sports hydraulic disc brakes and a choice of either eight or 11 gears. If you have an extra $10,750 USD lying around, pick up one of the bikes when they hit worldwide Hermes locations in November.
