In celebration of World Bicycle Day, A$AP Ferg and BMX brand Redline Bikes are coming together for a special collaborative range known as “A Collaboration Of Two True Originals.” The pairing’s joint collection is made up of a limited-edition RL 275 bike and a line of original merch that matches the design and color scheme of the bike; the RL 275 bike collaboration is billed a “passion project” for both parties involved.
Notably, A$AP Ferg designed every piece in the aforementioned range of merch by himself. The new RL 275 features special A$AP Ferg x Redline branding and a unique Pantone 394 fade to Matte Black finish, as well as plus-sized tires slack forks, 27.5 wheels and disc brakes. A$AP Ferg also debuted his RL 275 bike during his set at Something In The Water Festival.
“When you think BMX bike in Harlem, you think Redline,” A$AP Ferg explains in an official press statement, “This collaboration is something I was really involved in and passionate about.”
“RL 275 is one of our top bikes for the BMX market and to combined it with someone as influential as A$AP Ferg has been exciting for us,” shares Redline brand manager Steven Behen. “Redline has maintained a loyal following for years and these types of organic collaborations will help propel our growth and expand brand awareness to a new generation and customer.”
