We recently saw Cigarette Racing Team introduce their new Marauder GT S Concept boat inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT. The racing boat in matte black and yellow looked sublime. And now we have a limited edition mountain bike that sources its influence from the German automakers fire-breathing two-seater racing car. Built by German bicycle manufacturer Rotwild, the limited edition Rotwild GT S bike is designed to set new standards for high-performance mountain bikes. Created for competitions, the GT S bike features an ultra-lightweight frame with solarbeam yellow and carbon black accents.
The Rotwild GT S was designed with professional feedback from top athletes in the AMG Rotwild MTB racing team. The hard-tail GT S comes with a monocoque high-modulus carbon fiber frame. It also has carbon fiber Pro Tharsis XC handles bars, Ergon SRX saddle, Crankbrothers Cobalt 11 29-inch rims, and water bottle cage. Shifting is taken care of electronically via a Shimano XTR Di2 2 x 11 drivetrain that features a multi-shift function that allows “several gears to be shifted in sequence.” In terms of shock-absorption, the bike comes with a 100-mm ThirtyThree fork from Italian brand Formula. Other specs include Formula R1 Racing FCS hydraulic disc brakes, Continental Race King RaceSport tires, and Crankbrothers Candy 3 clipless pedals. Also included with the bike is a package including a Thule protective transport case, a Topeak shock pump, and various other Topeak tools contained in a rescue kit.
According to Mercedes-AMG Chairman Tobias Moers, “The mixture of bike racing, an unmistakable design and German engineering expertise is the connecting link between AMG and Rotwild. Our shared passion for high-performance products will continue to inspire our partnership in the future.” The production is limited to 100 units and pricing starts at €9,990 ($11,000 approximately)
