Aston Martin and J.Laverack have teamed up to create the .1R, a road bike that’s all about precision and performance. It’s a UK-made ride that brings together Aston Martin’s high-octane legacy with J.Laverack’s dedication to quality.
Oliver Laverack, the co-founder of J.Laverack Bicycles, shares his excitement about the collaboration: “Working with the team at Aston Martin has unlocked new ideas and innovations… creating a bicycle with unparalleled levels of craftsmanship and performance engineering.” Marek Reichman from Aston Martin calls the .1R “a titanium hypercar on two wheels,” highlighting its blend of top-notch engineering and sleek design.
This bike is a looker, sure, but it’s built to perform. It’s got these unique four-piston brake calipers that are a fresh take on bike brakes, and the way they’ve hidden the cables gives the bike a clean line and cuts down on wind resistance.
Every .1R buyer gets to go to Aston Martin’s HQ to get their bike fitted just for them. And with the online configurator, you can pick out colors and trims that match Aston Martin cars.
The .1R is ready for any challenge, whether it’s rough cobblestones or steep mountain paths, thanks to its titanium and carbon fibre frame. The Sphyr stem, inspired by the hammerhead shark and made from 3D-printed titanium, along with tailored crank lengths and saddle height, make sure this bike fits like a glove.
The bike’s got some subtle style points too, like super-thin metal badges and design nods to the Aston Martin Valkyrie. You can pick from the best 12-speed groupsets out there, and the chainrings are custom-made from aluminum. The wheels are something special too – AERA Components Æ|55s with deep carbon rims, paired with a black version of Continental’s GP5000S TR tires.
The Brooks C13 saddle, made just for the .1R, can be decked out in leather or Alcantara, and you’ve got a whole range of Aston Martin colors for the handlebar grips.
The .1R is a mix of old-school craftsmanship and cutting-edge tech, honoring Aston Martin’s founders and British innovation. It’s set to turn heads at Rouleur Live in London, a big event for bike fans.
This Aston Martin and J.Laverack bike might seem like another high-end product; but in essence, it’s a finely tuned machine that’s as much about the ride as it is about making a statement. It’s a bike that promises to deliver a unique blend of luxury and pedal power.
